The partnership, which enables the two millennial-owned and -operated firms to serve more than 30 clients in D.C. and six states, will also allow for an expanded line of services that include marketing and digital communications, business development and nonprofit fundraising and development.
“I am extremely proud of the work that we have accomplished at Mayson-Dixon helping to better tell our clients’ stories using campaign tactics to increase their bottom line,” said Jayson Williams, founder and CEO of Mayson-Dixon Strategic Consulting. “I am thrilled to add the team at Princeton Strategies to expand political fundraising and organizing campaigns to our arsenal of services we provide.”
Adam Erickson, founder and principal of Princeton Strategies, added that the partnership with Mayson-Dixon will allow them to meet the demand for services seen since his firm started in 2015.
“Mayson-Dixon’s experience providing business development and public affairs services will allow us to provide a diverse array of services to clients across the political, nonprofit, and for-profit world,” Erickson said. “On behalf of everyone at Princeton Strategies, we look forward to a prosperous new year and future with my new partner Jayson and the team at Mayson-Dixon.”
Founded in 2015, Mayson-Dixon is the brainchild of Williams following his successful career in politics, public service, organized labor and economic development. Williams was also part of the senior leadership team helping Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker build his government and work on key issues such as ethics and education reform, the $1.2 billion MGM National Harbor casino resort, government reorganizations and the administration’s signature community improvement program: The Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative.
Princeton Strategies of Philadelphia was founded by Erickson, who’d had a successful career consulting and managing political campaigns at the local, state and federal levels throughout New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
In 2014, Erickson managed U.S. Rep. Brendan Boyle’s successful primary campaign in a come-from-behind victory against an opponent with much higher name recognition and political backing.
