DIRECTOR OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
Jamie Barker was born and raised in Smackover, Arkansas. After graduating from Smackover High School, he attended Ouachita Baptist University. While there, he studied Biology, Chemistry, and Political Science, and was a 4-year letterman on the Men’s Golf Team.
Initially planning to attend medical school, he fell in love with politics and campaigns while working on Senator Tom Cotton’s first race in 2012 to represent Arkansas’ 4th Congressional District. He worked for Governor Mike Huckabee’s 2016 Presidential campaign before becoming Political Director of the Republican Party of Arkansas. During the 2017 legislative session, Jamie served as a legislative liaison for Governor Asa Hutchinson. Having earned the Governor’s trust, he was named Communications Director and Spokesman for Governor Hutchinson’s 2018 re-election campaign, which ended in a resounding victory.
Prior to joining JCD Consulting, Jamie operated his own consulting firm where he worked with political campaigns and private industries on effective communication strategies to locate and speak to their target audience.
Jamie lives in Little Rock with his wife Allie, a native of Little Rock, and their four children. With any free time outside of work and family, you’ll find Jamie on a golf course or watching the Razorbacks.
