KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Sacramento, California based Revolvis announced that they will be merging with Axiom Strategies, the largest Republican political consulting firm in the country. Through the deal, Axiom will open four offices on the west coast, in San Diego, San Francisco, Sacramento, and Seattle.
“Axiom’s collective brainpower and in-house capabilities are going to allow us to take client services to a new level,” Revolvis principal Duane Dichiara said.
Dichiara has been managing Republican political campaigns around the U.S. for more than 20 years. During his time as a general strategist, he has advised campaigns on every level. A few of his most notable was the 2003 gubernatorial recall election of Arnold Schwarzenegger where Dichiara was the deputy political director. In 2006, he was able to put a GOP reform candidate on the historically Democrat city council in San Diego.
Per the merger deal, he will join Axiom Strategies’ political advisory team along with Justin Matheson. Matheson oversaw Revolvis’ office in Seattle and manages Pacific Northwest operations for the company. He served as the executive director of the California Hospital Association PAC and managed Bill Bryant’s campaign for Governor of Kansas in 2016.
Jeff Roe, founder of Axiom Strategies and Brookfield, Missouri native, has developed Axiom Strategies into a force in American politics. He founded the company nearly 23 years ago and was referred to as “Ted Cruz’s Karl Rove,” by Mother Jones in 2015.
“I could not be more excited,” Roe says. “Duane is one of the most respected operatives in the entire state and frankly the country and Justin (Matheson) is a talented operative with deep relationships in the entire northwest. Getting them both is a huge day in the history of our company.”
