Chris Bond

Managing Director, Public Affairs


Chris Bond comes to FP1 Strategies with more than a decade of experience in high-stakes, high-profile electoral and issue battles.

Prior to joining FP1, Chris was Communications Director for Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), where he helped produce victories in tough messaging fights on contentious issues like tax reform, trade, and healthcare. He led the crisis communications response following the 2017 shooting at a practice for the Congressional Baseball Game, in which Scalise, then the House’s third-ranking member, was gravely injured, and he worked closely with the Whip as he recovered to plan and carry out his dramatic return to public life more than three months after the attack.

Chris previously served as a senior spokesman and strategist for statewide campaigns, national advocacy organizations, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC).

He is a graduate of Tulane University and a native of Suffolk County, New York. He and his wife, Katie, reside in Washington, D.C.
