Alaskan Kaleb Froehlich of Juneau is the new chief of staff to Sen. Lisa Murkowski, the senator’s office said today. Sen. Murkowski also promoted Garrett Boyle, her legislative director, to Deputy chief of staff and chief counsel.
Froehlich picks up as Alaskan Mike Pawlowski departs as chief of staff to return to Alaska, where he is in partnership with former State Sen. Jerry Mackie in a new venture called Strategy North Group.
Froehlich, an attorney who has been working on for Holland & Hart in Washington, D.C. worked for Murkowski as senior counsel to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee for several years.
Boyle was raised in small towns throughout Alaska, including Ouzinkie, Unalakleet, and Seward. Prior to joining Senator Murkowski’s staff, he ran his own business dealing with oil and gas and patent law issues, and served as an extern in the Eastern District of Louisiana while in law school.
