JCD Consulting Grows Team

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Jamie Barker and Jarrod Griffin Join JCD Consulting Little Rock – JCD Consulting Services announced today the addition of two full-time team members: Jamie Barker as Business Development Director, and Jarrod Griffin as Project Manager.

“As we gear up for a productive legislative session and look ahead to what will be a competitive 2022 election cycle, our firm is excited to add to our team,” said Chase Dugger, President of JCD Consulting. “The experience that Jamie and Jarrod bring with them will not only add value to our clients but will also help us remain one of the fastest-growing firms in the state.”

Barker, an Arkansas native, has more than eight years of experience working in politics and on state-wide political campaigns. His political career began with Senator Tom Cotton’s Congressional race in 2012. After working for Governor Mike Huckabee’s 2016 Presidential campaign, Barker joined the Republican Party of Arkansas as the Political Director. During the 2017 legislative session, Barker served as a legislative liaison for Governor Asa Hutchinson which later earned him the position as Communications Director and Spokesman for Governor Hutchinson’s 2018 re-election campaign, which ended in a resounding victory.

“Having worked with JCD Consulting on a handful of projects over the past four years, I am thrilled to be officially joining their team,” said Barker. “I am looking forward to hitting the ground running to support our growing number of clients.”

Griffin, another great addition to the JCD Consulting team, has spent time interning at both the RNC and NRSC in Washington as well as Governor Asa Hutchinson’s re-election campaign in 2018. He also spent the summer and fall of 2018 in Nashville working to help elect Senator Marsha Blackburn. Before joining JCD Consulting in the fall, Griffin worked for Baker Group Strategies and Bill Hagerty for U.S. Senate.

“JCD Consulting has a proven track record of winning for their clients, and I look forward to joining Chase and the rest of the team full-time,” said Griffin. “I've worked with JCD Consulting in the past, and I'm excited to continue working with our clients as we grow our firm’s presence in and outside of our home state.”

In addition to being a registered lobbyist, Barker will work with current and prospective clients to identify needs and chart how the firm can help them reach their goals. Griffin will work directly with campaigns and assist the firm with advertising production and data organization.
