MENLO PARK, CA - October 16, 2019 – Protiviti, a global consulting firm, announces that Susan Molinari has joined its advisory board. The board, formed more than ten years ago, provides market and business insights to assist Protiviti and its clients confidently face the challenges of a dynamic world.

Molinari has a wide-ranging background resulting from her multi-disciplined service in the leadership of the United States Congress, as vice president of Google’s Public Affairs for the Americas, as leader of multiple offices for international public affairs and lobbying giant Omnicom, and as a respected media communicator on numerous networks, including among others CBS, Fox, PBS and CNN.

Having been elected from a New York City-based district five times to Congress, Molinari was quickly elevated by House Republicans who twice elected her as one of just eight members to serve in the leadership of the first GOP majority in 40 years.

As Google’s vice president for the United States, Mexico, Latin America and Canada, Molinari managed teams that monitored and interacted with both Democratic and Republican U.S. Administrations, federal departments and agencies, both sides of the political aisle and both sides of the U.S. Capitol, as well as state and foreign capitals.

Molinari has worked with corporate America as a member of the board of Protective Life, on the Toyota North America Diversity Board, as chair of the corporate social responsibility Century Council, and at a global law and public policy firm.

“Susan’s government experience, especially her work helping one of the world’s largest technology firms understand and address its global challenges, will provide great insights for Protiviti and its clients,” said Joseph Tarantino, Protiviti’s president and CEO.

“Protiviti is a dynamic, growing firm. I am excited by the opportunity to join the impressive members of Protiviti’s Advisory Board and share my experience and perspective with Protiviti and its clients,” said Susan Molinari.

Molinari joins current Protiviti Advisory Board members Frances Townsend, former Assistant to President George W. Bush for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism and former chair of the Homeland Security Council; Evelyn Dilsaver, the former president and CEO of Charles Schwab Investment Management; and Peter Blair Henry, Dean Emeritus and W.R.
