RNC Announces New Director of Hispanic Communications

Veteran Hispanic Journalist Helen Aguirre Ferré Joins Communications Team

WASHINGTON - Today, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus announced Helen Aguirre Ferré will serve as the RNC’s Director of Hispanic Communications. Helen is a seasoned journalist who will be responsible for heading up communications efforts focused on the Hispanic community, and brings more than 25 years of communications and media relations experience into her new role.
“I’m excited to welcome Helen Aguirre Ferré as our new Director of Hispanic Communications,” said Chairman Priebus. “Helen will be an integral part of our Party’s ongoing commitment to build relationships and communicate our message directly with Hispanic voters. Her wealth of experience is complemented by a keen strategic vision, top-notch communication skills, and outstanding leadership qualities, and she is going to be a tremendous asset to the RNC as we seek to stop Hillary Clinton and elect a Republican president.”
“I am proud to be joining the RNC at such a critical time,” said Ms. Ferré. “This is one of the most important elections of our lifetime, and I’m eager to make the case to the Hispanic community why Republican ideas and values are the way forward for our country after eight years of an Obama agenda which has failed all Americans.”
Helen has decades of experience developing communications strategies and key messages with a special emphasis on the Hispanic community, including coordinating media opportunities and serving as a spokesperson, media trainer and surrogate, among other duties. Aguirre-Ferré hosted a national radio program on Univision America Radio reaching the ten largest Spanish language media markets in the country and also moderated the weekly public affairs show “Issues with Helen Ferré,” which reached audiences from South Florida’s Treasure Coast to the Florida Keys. She has also been a regular guest on NBC6 Miami, Newsmax, Univision and Telemundo networks, among others. Most recently Aguirre-Ferré served as an senior advisor to Governor Jeb Bush’s campaign for president.
