The longest serving mayoral spokesperson in New York City history, Stu Loeser has amassed more than two decades of communications, strategy and opposition research experience. After serving as U.S. Senator Charles Schumer's communications director, Stu became Mayor Michael Bloomberg's press secretary. He designed and led long-term strategic plans that made Mike Bloomberg a national leader on environmental sustainability, illegal guns and immigration while also managing all communications from City Hall and more than 40 city agencies.

Since 2012, Stu Loeser & Co. has helped some of the most prominent technology companies, Fortune 100 corporations, thriving start-ups and high net-worth individuals in the world set and exceed their goals. The firm’s "bare-knuckles approach, political instincts and deep connections" has earned high praise. The company's 2017 addition of a corporate intelligence team returns Stu to his roots as "New York City's foremost practitioner of the dark art known as opposition research."

Earlier in his career, Stu worked on the Clinton/Gore and Gore/Lieberman presidential campaigns, as well as mayoral, gubernatorial and senatorial campaigns around the country.
