Mercury Names Modia “Mo” Butler Partner

Westfield, NJ – Mercury, a leading global, bipartisan public strategy firm, announced that Modia “Mo” Butler has been named a Partner at the firm. Butler, who works out of the Mercury’s New Jersey office, joined the firm in 2016.

“Mo Butler is a tremendous asset to Mercury’s New Jersey operation and has helped us grow nationally as well,” said Mercury Partner Mike DuHaime. “Mo’s extensive knowledge of municipal and federal government has made him an integral member of our firm and a trusted adviser to his clients. Most importantly, Mo is a tremendous human being who leads by example. We are fortunate to have him as part of our leadership team.”

Butler joined Mercury as Managing Director coming to the firm from the office of U.S. Senator Cory Booker, where he served as New Jersey chief of staff overseeing the Senator’s New Jersey offices. He remains a senior strategist to Sen. Booker and served as a key political adviser to Newark Mayor Ras Baraka during his successful re-election campaign. In addition, Butler provides strategic advice to other high-profile elected officials in New Jersey and across the country.

“Mo isn’t just one of the most talented political minds in New Jersey and the country, he’s a great friend with an infectious personality,” said Mercury Partner Michael Soliman. “From his experience as Chief of Staff to Cory Booker as Mayor of Newark and then as Senator, Mo has gained the local, state, and national expertise to become a respected powerhouse in state and national politics. Mo is a trusted adviser and a tremendous asset to Mercury and our clients.”

Butler has been a key player in state and national politics and has appeared on several lists of New Jersey’s most influential political figures. In addition, Mo has received numerous accolades for his work on behalf of the citizens of Newark.

“I am honored to serve as a partner at Mercury,” said Butler. “As Mercury continues to excel and bring in new, exceptional talent, I look forward to continuing to grow with the firm and its extraordinary team to help our clients achieve success.”

Mercury, a high-stakes public strategy firm, continues to expand nationwide and across the globe, most recently through the addition of a Philadelphia office. In addition to Butler, Mercury’s New Jersey office is led by Mike DuHaime, leading national Republican strategist, and Michael Soliman, senior strategist to U.S. Senator Robert Menendez.
