Patti Solis Doyle is a partner at Utrecht & Phillips, a Washington, D.C., law firm that offers strategic counseling and representation before Congress and the executive agencies and specializes in federal and state campaign finance and ethic laws. She is also president of Solis Strategies, which offers strategic communication and political advisory services. Solis Doyle has made her name as a political organizer and campaign strategist with unprecedented insight into several of the most important campaigns of the past 30 years, including Bill Clinton's successful bid for president in 1992, and Barack Obama's landslide victory in 2008. Solis Doyle became one of the earliest staffers to join then-Governor Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign when she was hired to work for Hillary Clinton. From 1993 to 2001, she served in the White House as the director of scheduling and advance for the first lady. She took leave from her White House duties to serve as chief of staff of Hillary Clinton's 2000 Senate campaign, where she managed the campaign's day-to-day operations and coordinated press, policy, political, and scheduling operations. Following the election, Solis Doyle founded and led HILLPAC, Clinton's political action committee, and Friends of Hillary, Clinton's reelection campaign. As campaign manager of Clinton's presidential bid from January 2007 through February 2008, Solis Doyle was the first Hispanic woman to lead an American presidential campaign. After the primary election, she joined the Obama for America campaign as chief of staff for vice presidential operations. Solis Doyle received the 2007 Latinas of Excellence Award from Hispanic Magazine and the Siempre Inspiran award from Siempre Mujer magazine.
