Lindsay Gilbride

Managing Director

Lindsay joined CLS Strategies with significant experience working on Capitol Hill and on Republican campaigns. Lindsay currently works across CLS Strategies’ practice specialties, often bringing her expertise to clients facing particularly challenging reputational concerns.

Among her client successes, Lindsay brought together and managed a coalition to change the conversation about retirement security in America, specifically around the annuitization of retirement assets. The multi-faceted campaign successfully repositioned annuities in a positive light as a guaranteed source of income. Annuities today are recognized by policymakers as a vital part of serious retirement security solutions.

Lindsay also has significant experience working for trade associations of all sizes and across industries. She is presently working to elevate the image of ambulatory surgery centers (ASC) as a high quality, cost-effective alternative to hospital outpatient departments, as well as to set straight incorrect perceptions about the ASC industry.

Prior to joining CLS Strategies, Lindsay served as a spokesperson for Senator Gordon Smith (R-OR) in both his Senate office and for his 2008 reelection effort. She previously worked on Capitol Hill as press secretary for congressional members from New Hampshire and Florida.

A native of Ohio, Ms. Gilbride is a graduate of Miami University with a degree in political science.
