Politico: Cox, new partners join IMGE as Musser departs to Boeing

By Kevin Robillard 09/07/2017 05:04 PM EDT

Phil Musser, the chairman and CEO of Republican digital firm IMGE, is leaving the company to become the senior vice president for communications at Boeing in Chicago — with the firm bringing on a host of big names to replace him.

Phil Cox, like Musser a former executive director of the Republican Governors Association, is joining the firm as a partner and replacing Musser as chairman. Ethan Eilon will become the firm’s president, with Megan Foote, currently the firm’s vice president, becoming a partner and chief operating officer and assuming responsibility for the firm’s day-to-day operations.

Gerrit Lansing, the RNC’s former chief digital officer, and Gary Coby, the Trump campaign’s digital advertising and fundraising director, will become senior partners.

Marty Obst, a longtime top aide to Vice President Mike Pence, is joining the firm as a senior adviser.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled about the amazing team coming in to lead my agency, which is experiencing record growth due to great client service, a dynamic culture, and a commitment to winning for our clients,” Musser said in a statement. “We have an awesome team led by Megan at IMGE today, and the addition of Ethan, Phil Cox, Gerrit, Gary and Marty will take the company to a whole new level.”
