Mercury Taps Seasoned Republican Communicator Terry Holt

WASHINGTON, DC (November 2, 2022) – Mercury, a leading global, bipartisan public strategy firm, today announced the addition of Terry Holt, a successful political and policy strategist in the nation’s capital for more than 25 years. He has served in both the U.S. House and Senate, and as spokesperson and communicator on two winning presidential campaigns.

Beginning his career on the press staff of Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN), Holt worked on congressional campaigns around the country. He would serve as a senior advisor for political figures like President George W. Bush and U.S. House Speaker, John Boehner, building a reputation as a straight-talking voice.

“We are thrilled to welcome Terry to the team, a seasoned communicator who has been successful everywhere he has served thanks to his instincts and relentless hard work,” said former Rep. Vin Weber (R-MN), a Mercury partner.

Holt founded HDMK, a bipartisan public affairs practice working with high-profile clients on stories ranging from health care and cannabis to telecommunications, energy, and finance. Terry is a close observer of national trends, specializing on the nexus between the President, the Congress and the media. He appears regularly on cable news shows across the media spectrum.

“Our clients value the bipartisan insights and relationships that we provide. Terry’s expertise and political experience are a powerful addition to our growing team,” said former Rep. Toby Moffett (D-CT), a Mercury partner.
