Updated 2:07 p.m. | Nick Everhart, formerly a top Republican ad-maker, has a new job at Majority Strategies, a Florida-based GOP direct mail firm.
Everhart was abruptly fired via email in April from his position as president of The Strategy Group for Media, a GOP ad firm. The Ohio-based company made television spots for Republicans all over the ballot, and Everhart was at the center of many of those productions.
Everhart will be a national salesman in his new job, according to a release. At SGM, he pitched to clients and was also involved in ad production.
“Nick Everhart has proven himself to be one of the most talented operatives in Republican politics today,” Majority Strategies President Brett Buerck said in a release. “He brings an invaluable wealth of experience, insight and political intuition to our firm.”
After his termination, Everhart’s former boss at SGM, Rex Elsass, sued him for violating a non-compete agreement. At issue is how broadly to interpret the agreement that Everhart signed two weeks before his termination.
