Attain Partners, a McLean, VA-headquartered management and technology consulting firm, has admitted Ellen Walsh to its partnership.

Walsh will continue to serve as the firm’s chief marketing officer (CMO) and chief of staff. As CMO, Walsh leads Attain Partners’ brand, marketing, and communications efforts and as chief of staff she provides leadership across infrastructure and practices. Walsh oversaw protocols and logistics during the Covid-19 pandemic and led numerous elements during the firm’s divestment of its federal consulting practice. She has also supported multiple acquisitions, grown internal functions, and managed several facility buildouts.

Walsh joined the firm at its founding in 2009. Before that, she spent 10 years at BearingPoint/KPMG Consulting, where she was latterly a senior manager in marketing.

Walsh has a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University.
