Beth Myers is a political consultant, campaign advisor and attorney with a long history of involvement in public issues and campaigns. Most recently, she was campaign manager for Mitt Romney’s presidential race and before that served as his chief of staff through all four years of the Romney governorship.

On Romney’s leaving the governor’s office in 2006, Myers co-founded a consulting firm, The Shawmut Group, along with two other senior Romney advisors. One of the firm’s most prominent clients has been Scott Brown, a then little-known Republican state senator whom they helped win the 2010 special election to fill the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by Sen. Edward “Ted” Kennedy.

Myers previously worked as a litigation associate at Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld LLP in Dallas. Beginning with Ronald Reagan’s 1980 Reagan presidential campaign, she worked for a number of candidates. Working for Market Opinion Research, she developed and implemented GOTV campaigns in California, Texas, Massachusetts, Louisiana and Missouri. She was deputy campaign manager for Ray Shamie’s 1984 U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts and the 1986 Bill Clements for Governor campaign in Texas.

Myers also served as chief of staff to Massachusetts State Treasurer Joe Malone, and worked on Malone’s 1998 campaign for governor.

She holds a B.A. from Tufts University and a J.D. from Southern Methodist University School of Law.
