Bill Greener is a founding partner of the firm, Greener and Hook, LLC, a communications and political consulting firm servicing individual companies, trade associations, ad-hoc organizations and Republican candidates for political office. In operation since May of 1998, Greener and Hook has attracted a wide array of both corporate and political clients.
Throughout his nearly 30 years in the communications and political consulting fields, Greener has emerged as a leader in dealing with situations that involve a balancing of public opinion, public policy and political considerations.
From 1991 through the formation of Greener and Hook, he was a partner at the firm of Smith & Harroff (S&H), an Alexandria, Virginia-based consulting firm, working on both corporate and political accounts. In 1996, Greener took a leave of absence from Smith & Harroff to serve as Convention Manager for the Republican National Convention. The San Diego convention was one of the most highly praised in convention history for turning an event usually of interest only to political activists into an entertaining television program that attracted and interested a much wider audience.
In the 1986 election cycle, Greener was the Deputy Chief of Staff for political operations at the Republican National Committee (RNC), where he was responsible for directing the communications and political divisions, the operating arms of the RNC. Prior to holding this position, he spent three years as Communications Director for the RNC.
At the outset of the Reagan Administration, Greener held the post of Director of Public Affairs at the Department of Energy (DOE). In addition, he has been Director of Media Operations for the U.S. Synthetic Fuels Corporation and served in the communications offices of both the Treasury Department and the Ford White House. Other political posts include Director of Media Operations for the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), Communications Director for the Illinois Republican State Party, and a similar job for the state’s U.S. Senate candidate in 1980.
A 1972 graduate of Washington and Lee University with graduate-level studies in psychology at Miami of Ohio University, Greener serves on the faculty of the George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management (GSPM).
