Reilly Knecht

Senior Account Executive

Reilly's passion for working with people is matched only by her genuine desire to learn. While her cruising speed is 100 miles per hour – she can figure out the small details that make up the big picture for clients. Whether it's developing her knowledge to gain insight on a complicated issue or finding the best sentence flow to assist a client with a press release, Reilly always seeks opportunities to broaden her perspective while helping those around her be their best. As an experienced DC communicator, Reilly understands the vital relationship between Capitol Hill and downtown Washington. With a passion for networking and navigating the intricacies of our nation's capital region, she zealously seeks to unite people, build bridges, and leave everything at least a *little* better off than when she found it.

Before joining Adfero, Reilly worked as studio director and digital content manager at the NRSC, honing her communication and digital strategy skills by working one-on-one with high-profile senators, candidates, and their teams. Before her time at the NRSC, Reilly served in numerous communications roles on Capitol Hill, including for members of her home state of Texas, Representatives Will Hurd and Jodey Arrington. Reilly also worked on the digital team for Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise while he served as House Republican Whip.

Reilly graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, with a BA in Communications and a minor in Business.

Little-known fact: Reilly's first business venture was "Designs By Rei" – a digital marketing and jewelry business. She sold over 7,000 handmade pieces, helping to fund her education.
