About Andrew Koneschusky

A Capitol Hill veteran, Andrew advises clients in the U.S. and abroad who find themselves in high-stakes scenarios with significant reputational and business risk, including government investigations, federal and state policy battles and high-profile litigation. Andrew counsels corporate executives, association CEOs and political leaders, helping them see around corners, apply strict message discipline and execute with delicate precision.

Andrew’s clients have included a global technology company facing antitrust investigations on both sides of the Atlantic and a global money payments company whose compliance practices came under U.S. government scrutiny. For more than eight years, Andrew advised the U.S. commercial drone industry as it tackles safety, security and privacy concerns that threaten to derail the promising technology. In addition to his work advising domestic companies and industries, Andrew has advised foreign governments and political leaders facing challenges abroad.

Prior to joining CLS Strategies, Andrew was a vice president at the crisis communications firm LEVICK, where he guided clients through congressional investigations, state and federal regulatory actions, and complex litigation and crises. His clients at LEVICK included an insurance and financial services company implicated in the economic collapse, a major U.S. airline that faced FAA scrutiny over missed inspections and a FEMA trailer manufacturer caught in the crosshairs of the House Oversight Committee. While at LEVICK, Andrew also led the communications effort behind the landmark Supreme Court case that granted habeas corpus rights to detainees imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

In 2014, Andrew was named to PR Week’s “40 Under 40” list of industry leaders who “demonstrate innovative thinking, strong determination and results that indicate a long and successful career in the PR industry.”
