Joshua D. Arnold

Founder & Principal Director
As a messaging management leader, Josh has been directing communications strategy in both the public and private sectors for over 10 years. It is this wide range of experience that serves our clients so well, along with a deep understanding of how to effectively tell even the most complicated of stories. 
Over the past decade, Josh has managed communications for members of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, Pennsylvania Senate as well as for large corporate clients such as Merck, Intel, Signant Health and City National Bank. Additionally, Josh has managed operations and communications for dozens of political and special interest campaigns. 
Throughout his professional journey, Josh has seen that the private and public sectors each possess large untapped resources for one another. And that philosophy informs the core mission of our organization: to bring the competitiveness of politics to the private sector, and the ingenuity of the private sector to the political arena. 
Josh holds a Bachelor’s degree from Kutztown University and studied Public Administration as a graduate student at West Chester University.
 A dedicated Philadelphia sports fan, you can catch Josh at a Sixers game in the winter, Phillies game in the summer or at the local basketball courts playing a game of pickup hoops. He resides in West Norriton Township with his wife and their son, Christian.

our story.

In July 2017, 121 Strategies was launched as a new platform to bring together the positive aspects of communication strategy from the public and private sectors to improve on client success in both arenas. Through years of crafting messages in both the political and private industries, our team has been able to identify that the cross-over between the public and private sector communications models has incredibly beneficial untapped resources for one another.  At 121 Strategies, we bring the competitive edge of orchestrating political campaigns to the private sector and the ingenuity of private business to our political clients.  With combined experiences in Political Consulting, Campaign Management, Social Media Marketing, Traditional Media Production and Corporate Communication Strategy, our tactics for implementing effective communications campaigns are as varied as our professional backgrounds.  Through our staff and strategic partnerships, we can deliver every facet of effective communication campaigns for political and non-political clients alike.  From direct mail to digital micro targeting, fundraising to public relations management and everywhere in between, we have consistently delivered quality on behalf of all those who choose to partner with us. 

Since our inception, we have embraced the concept that our clients are our partners, not just our acquaintances. We embrace the responsibility that comes along with taking a personal approach to effectively taking your message to the audience that needs to hear it most. To date our clients have included sitting U.S. Congressmen, numerous State Representatives and Senators, local elected officials, multi-million dollar Real Estate Organizations and multiple Fortune 500 companies. The 121 team recognizes that every one of these campaigns is vastly different, and our approach to achieving each goal is tailor made to that individual client. We believe strongly that victory is a collaborative effort, with all sides taking stock in our stated goals and working together towards a common purpose. Whether it's through products or policy, our clients are striving to make a positive difference in the lives of others, and we are striving to enhance their ability to do so. Taking an innovative approach to helping policy makers and business owners have a positive impact on their community is our passion, what’s yours?
