LEADING POLITICAL STRATEGIST THARON JOHNSON OPENS PARAMOUNT COUNSULTING GROUP
Firm Will Offer Bipartisan Lobbying and Political Management Services
ATLANTA (May 31, 2017) – Prominent political strategist Tharon Johnson announced today that he has founded Paramount Consulting Group, LLC, a bipartisan firm that will provide comprehensive lobbying, media engagement, communications, campaign management and government affairs services.
Johnson is a native Georgian with years of experience in local and national politics and a portfolio of blue-chip and growing companies. He is often sought-after for his strategic thinking and ability to get things done at the federal, state, and municipal levels.
Johnson’s experience includes serving as a Director with Greenberg Traurig’s Atlanta lobbying practice. Prior to that, he was a Managing Director at McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP (now Dentons). He also served as the National Southern Regional Director for President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, the 2009 campaign manager and senior advisor for Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, the campaign manager and district director for Congressman John Lewis, and the campaign manager for then Labor Commissioner and current DeKalb CEO Michael Thurmond.
“I’m passionate about public policy, advocacy and politics. This is a great opportunity for me to put my years of experience on the local and national stage to work for a diverse set of clients,” said Johnson, founder and CEO. “This new chapter of my life, which may be humbling at times, will allow me a better platform from which I can work to help good public servants win elections and to advocate for both nonprofit and for-profit interests in Georgia and across the country.”
Johnson will be joined by Principal Jeremiah Olney, who will assist Johnson with government affairs, lobbying, and campaign management work. Olney’s experience includes serving as deputy director of communications with the Georgia Senate Democratic Caucus and as a political consultant on several local races, including Fulton County Sheriff Ted Jackson and DeKalb CEO Thurmond.
