Washington (CNN) - Ken Spain, a highly regarded political strategist being eyed by some potential Republican presidential candidates, is joining a financial services organization after helping the GOP retake control of the House last month.
Spain, who oversaw communications for the National Republican Congressional Committee, has signed on with the Private Equity Growth Capital Council to oversee its public relations arm. Republicans picked up 63 House seats in the November election, enough to comfortably take control of the chamber.
"Ken is a hot property on the Republican side and has drawn interest from some of the potential top tier presidential campaigns," said Stuart Rothenberg, editor of the non-partisan Rothenberg Political Report. "The Private Equity Growth Capital Council picked off a GOP communications star."
Before joining the NRCC, Spain held several positions on Capitol Hill and worked on President Bush's re-election campaign.
