WASHINGTON – GPS Impact, an integrated multi-media and public affairs firm, announced today the addition of two veteran communications professionals, Sally Aman and Teresa Chaurand. 

“GPS Impact has always been committed to developing thoughtful solutions for the challenges our clients face — whether they’re looking to persuade swing voters, influence opinion-makers, or shape the national media narrative on an issue,” said GPS Impact Partner Roy Temple. “The addition of Sally and Teresa — public affairs powerhouses with decades of combined experience at the highest levels of government and in the private sector — will expand our capabilities to help clients move the needle and meet their audiences where they are: online, offline, in the news or on TV.” 

Aman served as a White House communications director in the Office of Vice President Al Gore and is the founder of Aman & Associates, a Washington-based public affairs consulting firm. Most recently she served as SVP of communications and public affairs at USTelecom-The Broadband Association. As Chief Communications Officer, Aman will draw on her decades of experience shaping policy debates across the country to expand and advise the firm’s strategic communications and public affairs practice.

“This is an incredibly exciting time to work in the public affairs and advocacy space,” said Aman. “Today’s cluttered media landscape demands strategic approaches that leverage the combined assets of integrated digital, earned, and paid campaigns.  I’m excited to join a team with so much talent and in-house capabilities to shape the public debate — online and off.”

Chaurand is joining GPS as a principal and senior advisor. She served as a Special Assistant to the President in the Obama Administration and is a public affairs professional specializing in diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy and public/private partnerships. Chaurand served as a volunteer on the Biden-Harris Transition Team, and is currently working to advance representation of Latinos in the Biden-Harris Administration.

“GPS Impact has built a stellar reputation for cutting edge digital strategy and developing integrated, audience-first solutions for clients,” said Chaurand. “I’m excited to help GPS deliver services to candidates as well as a wider range of organizational and governmental clients who will benefit from its strategic expertise, in-house ad-buying and creative capabilities.”
