As a co-founder of McBee Strategic Consulting, Rihani was instrumental in growing the firm from a 3-person advocacy team to nearly 50 public affairs professionals. During her tenure, she played a key role diversifying McBee’s services by adding a communications team and to the subsequent acquisition by Wiley Rein, LLP. Under Rihani’s management, Signal served its clients in the areas of public affairs, government relations, strategic communications, and digital media.
I am excited to join such an incredible team whose passion and commitment to each other and to their clients is unmatched. I look forward to adding my perspective to the Mindset team to support its growth and allow the team to focus on what they do best—provide real value for our clients.
