Occhiogrosso Returning To Global Strategy Group

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

Departing Malloy aide Roy Occhiogrosso will be returning to Global Strategy Group, the firm said Monday.

\"occhiogross\"Occhiogrosso, who says he made the decision in the last few weeks, was a partner at the political consulting company from 2003 to 2010, when he helped run Malloy\’s campaign.

\”I worked there for seven years, it\’s like a family to me,\” said Occhiogrosso, who announced in December that he\’d be departing at the end of the year but did not give a reason for doing so other than to say that he initially planned to stay only a year. \”I considered similar roles in a couple different places and also thought about doing something on my own, but this made a lot of sense for a lot of reasons,\” he said.

As a single father of two young boys, anywhere besides Connecticut was off the table for Occhiogrosso. Asked if he\’s planning on running Malloy\’s 2014 gubernatorial campaign, Occhiogrosso said nothing had been discussed yet. \”I don’t know the answer to that,\” he said. \”I assume that when the time is open we’ll have a conversation, but the governor\’s got a lot on his plate right now, dealing with the aftermath of Newtown and trying to put together a budget.\”
