Google Makes Former Rep. Susan Molinari VP in D.C. Office

Google, which has made headlines lately for hot-button privacy and antitrust issues, has made former Congresswoman Susan Molinari head of its Washington office, reports Politico.

Molinari, a Republican who is well connected inside the Beltway and founded the government affairs consulting firm Susan Molinari Strategies, will be Google’s vice president of public policy and government relations for the Americas. Beginning in mid-March, she will be responsible for handling policy advocacy and government outreach in North and South America.

Former Sen. John E. Sununu, who worked with Molinari in the House, lauded her credentials, telling Politico that her skill set will be a tremendous asset to Google.

“The Google office in Washington has not had someone with the visibility of a former member of Congress, and with her understanding of the complexities of the legislative process,” Sununu said. “Google is receiving a higher level of scrutiny . . . When you’re such a large and growing company, you have to have a strong, visible, capable leader in Washington.”
