Bruce Namerow

Congratulations to Bruce Namerow, whose company Interactive Strategies was named one of the top Washington, D.C. web design companies by Clutch, a B2B research firm. Clutch connects people with agencies and software solutions. In naming Interactive Strategies one of the top companies, DJ Fajana, business analyst at Clutch said, “In today’s day and age, a good website is integral to establishing a company’s brand. These D.C. web designers have showcased their exceptional ability to deliver responsive, well-crafted, and unique websites for their clients.”

Namerow founded Interactive Strategies in 2001, believing web agencies could do a better job of meeting the strategic needs of clients. He continues to be driven by the desire to provide innovative and comprehensive web strategies for a select group of clients.

Before starting his company, Namerow honed his marketing and communications skills in politics; first in the Clinton White House, then in the office of Democratic Leader Dick Gephardt. Following his passion for the emerging Internet, he left politics to work at Magnet Interactive where he became a senior producer helping to shape online strategies for Fortune 500 clients such as First USA/Bank One, DuPont, Accenture, USAA Insurance and more.

Congratulations also to Luna + Eisenla Media, which announced the signing of Earthjustice.  As reported in Politico, “They were hired to do media outreach work on Earthjustice’s efforts to combat the Trump administration’s environmental and climate policies.”

Brad Luna and Kris Eisenla founded LUNA+EISENLA media, LLC, a strategic media and communications firm aimed at tackling the leading policy and political issues of the day. They both have extensive careers in communications and media relations.

He began his career in Washington as press secretary for former Congressman Brad Carson (D-Okla.).

Eisenla’s background includes providing communications and media relations counsel to government, campaigns, non-profit and corporate entities. He served as the deputy chief of staff and communications director for Rep. Diana DeGett (D-Colo.), where he managed a staff of 16 in Washington and Denver. He served as her political liaison on the Host Committee during the 2008 Democratic National Convention working with the governors, senators and then the Obama campaign.

He was a vice president at Widmeyer Communications. Eisenla has a deep health care and small business background, ranging from ensuring reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) to promoting embryonic stem cell research and including key track and trace provisions in our nation’s food safety system.
