Anthony Campisi

Director, Philadelphia

Anthony utilizes his 15 years of experience in journalism, government and strategic communications to build campaigns to help organizations large and small move the needle on some of the nation’s most significant public policy debates, from climate change to labor rights. 

Nonprofits, unions, trade associations and advocacy groups turn to him when they’re seeking to bring public pressure to bear to advance legislation, influence executive action and secure a seat at the table as critical decisions are made at the local, regional and state levels. 

Anthony also works closely with political action committees to develop strategy on major election campaigns and independent expenditure efforts at the local, state and federal levels. 

At the same time, Anthony works to protect the reputations of high-profile organizations facing crises that could damage their brand and impact political relationships and critical government funding sources. 

A native of Metuchen, N.J., with years of experience working in the New Jersey Statehouse, Anthony manages the firm’s growing presence in New Jersey, where he specializes in building and marshalling diverse coalitions to shape public opinion. 

Prior to joining Ceisler Media in 2015, Anthony worked as a consultant to nonprofit advocacy groups and political campaigns. He also served in the administration of former Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter. 

Anthony cut his chops as a journalist for the Philadelphia Daily News, The Philadelphia Inquirer and the New Jersey Statehouse Bureau of the Bergen Record. This experience gives him a deep understanding of the media and political landscape in Harrisburg, Trenton and Philadelphia’s City Hall. 

A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, he currently resides with his family in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. Anthony serves on the board of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia and is an active member of the Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields in the city’s Chestnut Hill section.
