HARRISBURG (Nov. 8, 2023) – Jason High has been named Managing Partner at Ridge Policy
Group, Harrisburg’s premier bipartisan government relations firm founded by former
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge and his two longtime senior advisors, Mark Holman and
Mark Campbell.

Since joining the firm in 2018, Ridge Policy Group’s clients have benefited from Jason’s unique
mix of experience at the highest levels of state government and the private sector. He has
worked in close partnership with both Holman and Campbell who will continue in their roles as
founding partners at Ridge Policy Group – Mark Campbell in the Harrisburg office and Mark
Holman in Washington, D.C.

“It is a privilege for me to both maintain and grow Governor Ridge’s remarkable legacy of good
government and bipartisanship,” said High. “When the Ridge name is on your front door, clients
expect that your approach to public policy and advocacy will always be delivered with civility
and respect, but also with passion and energy for getting things done. I am proud to build on
the strong foundation built by Mark Holman and Mark Campbell and look forward to continuing
to work with them on behalf of our clients.”

With decades of experience in public service, and proven results on behalf of clients from
diverse industries, sectors and backgrounds, Ridge Policy Group is highly regarded for its
comprehensive approach that sets it apart from other lobbying firms. Its work and successes for
its clients will always be tethered to the approaches that made Gov. Ridge one of the most
effective and beloved governors in Pennsylvania history.

“I am delighted that Jason has accepted and embraced the role of Managing Partner at the
firm,” said Gov. Ridge. “Few people know the inner workings of Pennsylvania state government
better than Jason. His relationships, strategic problem-solving and unique understanding of key
policy issues is an incredible resource for the clients we serve. At the end of the day,
government relations is about getting results. Jason has proven he can do that. Most
importantly to me, however, is his commitment to finding bipartisan solutions – not easy in
today’s climate. I know it is equally important to him as it remains to me.”

Jason came to Ridge Policy Group five years ago from the Scott Wagner for Governor Campaign, where Jason served as the Campaign Manager. Scott Wagner was the Republican nominee for Governor of Pennsylvania, not only securing the endorsement of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania but also defeating a well-funded primary opponent in a hotly contested primary campaign.

Jason has twice served in the role of Chief of Staff to two Republican Pennsylvania State
Senators, John H. Eichelberger, Jr. and Scott Wagner. In those roles, Jason oversaw all office operations and staff, advised the Senators on policy, and worked with other offices and leadership to help to advance the goals of the Senators.

Jason’s private sector experience includes serving as the Vice President of Tyrone-based data
security firm Reclamere. Jason oversaw the entire operation of the company, was responsible
for management of all personnel, worked directly with the three owners of the company to
develop the company’s strategic plan, and was the responsible staff-level person for executing
that plan.

Jason lives in Dauphin County with his wife Patricia and their three children: Jasmine, Trevor,
and Levi.
