Des Moines-based political communications firm Redwave Communications announced today that it has launched a digital marketing firm called Redwave Digital. The firm will be led by Tim Albrecht, who has stepped down as the communications director for Gov. Terry Branstad. Redwave Digital is being co-founded by political strategist David Kochel, founder of Redwave Communications, and Jon Troen, president of ColorFX and Rock Communications. Kochel said in a press release Redwave Digital will consist of more than 70 team members from across a wide spectrum of creative specialists and data and programming talent. Branstad's office today announced that deputy communications director Jimmy Centers will take over Albrecht's spot as director of communications. Centers, 26, served as the Northeast Iowa field director on Branstad's 2010 campaign.
