Formalizing the bond

After Rasky Baerlein Strategic Communications split up in 2017, Larry Rasky regularly turned to former Senate President Therese Murray for advice. She would occasionally do consulting work for Rasky’s public affairs firm, now known simply as Rasky Partners, and she joined the firm’s advisory board.

Now, Rasky and Murray are formalizing the relationship, with Murray coming on board as a senior adviser. It’s a part-time gig that allows her to keep overseeing the nonprofit she launched in 2015, MassIgnite, which helps promote the state’s tech sector in overseas markets.

Terry has always been important to me,” Rasky says. “She’s one of the sharpest political minds we have in the Commonwealth.”

Murray says she hopes to offer MassIgnite’s services to Rasky’s clients, and vice versa.

Being able to tap into the expertise at Rasky’s firm could be a strong selling point for MassIgnite.

“It just gives me the ability [to tell] clients we talk to that we have this whole operation behind us that we can offer them,” Murray says.
