Naomi Seligman ’95

Naomi has built her career transforming talented people and organizations into powerhouses of influence. Her hard-hitting strategies have put clients on the map for 20 years, in a career spanning both coasts and the very different worlds of Washington D.C. and Hollywood.

As president of Tower26, she builds winning campaigns for advocacy organizations, writers, legal professionals, tech innovators, and entertainment industry luminaries, through robust partnerships, creative marketing, and media buzz.

Naomi created and led a national advocacy and entertainment campaign for ‘INOCENTE,’ the 2013 Oscar winner for Best Documentary Short at the Academy Awards. She has worked with the Global Survivors Network, on publicizing the 2011 Oscar-nominated short documentary ‘Killing in the Name,’ and with Oscar-nominated producer Marc Smolowitz on the award-winning documentary ‘The Power of Two.’

In her political work, she has helped end the careers of some of the most corrupt members of Congress, targeted the NRA and its allies, exposed front groups covering for corporate interests, and rooted out misinformation in the media.

Naomi built and directed communications operations for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and Media Matters and was the media force behind the defense of outed undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson and her husband, Ambassador Joseph Wilson.

She has worked with actors from Kim Cattrall to Ellen Page to John Leguizamo to advance their advocacy efforts and launched the ‘Rebuild The Dream’ Campaign Tour with Van Jones and Shepard Fairey.

She has worked extensively on Capitol Hill.

Naomi has been featured in media including CNN, NPR, The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and The Wall Street Journal.

She is a political partner with the Truman National Security Network, on the board of Emerge California and A New Way of Life Re-entry Project, as well as a mentor with New Leaders Council.
