Vice President, Corporate Communications & Public Affairs
With more than 25 years of career experience spanning the corporate, government, journalism, and agency sectors, Nicholas leads the full suite of mission-driven corporate communications programs for FiscalNote - including all media relations, executive & internal communications, brand reputation, and influencer engagement programs – and also manages the company’s public affairs presence in the marketplace.
Prior to FiscalNote, Nicholas was Founder of Hidden Creek Communications, a public relations consultancy with a global clientele of Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, and advocacy organizations including Gannett, Accenture, Consolidated Edison, USA Today, and the American Foundation for Equal Rights. He was also Executive Editor of The Loudoun Times-Mirror, where he earned eight awards for his journalism from the Virginia Press Association. In the corporate domain, Nicholas was Vice President of Communications and Spokesperson for America Online (AOL), and also held the same position at IAC/InterActiveCorp’s flagship Ask.com unit at transformational times for both brands.
A strong believer in public service, Nicholas was Press Secretary for the President’s Commission on Care for America’s Returning Wounded Warriors, where he received the Award for Outstanding Achievement from the U.S. Secretary of Defense. During his time in the U.S. House and U.S. Senate on Capitol Hill, Nicholas served as Press Secretary for U.S. Senators Olympia J. Snowe (Maine), John H. Chafee (Rhode Island), and the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee. He was also senior policy advisor for the successful 1996 election campaign of U.S. Senator Susan M. Collins (Maine). He began his career working for an international PR agency in Washington, D.C., and a financial communications firm in London, UK.
Nicholas earned a BA in Political Science and Western Europe Studies from The American University’s School of International Service. He lives in Hillsboro, Va., with his wife and four sons - and loves to head up to his rustic log cabin on the Kennebec River in Maine any chance he gets.
