Scott Brown continues to build his staff after winning the special election last month to fill the final three years of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy's term.
Colin Reed, a native of Norwell, Massachusetts, moves over from the National Republican Senatorial Committee where he was the deputy press secretary, to become Brown's new press secretary.
"Colin is a talented communicator with good relationships in both Massachusetts and Washington, and I am proud to have him on my team," Brown said in a statement obtained by CNN that will be released Thursday afternoon. "As a Bay State native, he understands the issues facing Massachusetts, and will be a great asset as we serve the people of the Commonwealth."
Reed joins Gail Gitcho in the Massachusetts Republican's press shop. Gitcho recently left her post as Republican National Committee press secretary to become Brown's communications director.
