The Castle Group, Senior Advisor, Lizzy Guyton

Lizzy Guyton is a veteran communications strategist with more than a decade of experience in high-stakes issues at the state and national level.

Before founding South & Hill Strategies, Ms. Guyton served as Communications Director to Governor Charlie Baker and Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. As an original member of the Administration’s senior staff, she crafted and oversaw public messaging, including several high-profile crises and historic challenges.

Most recently, Ms. Guyton spearheaded the communications strategy for Massachusetts’ COVID-19 statewide response. Her dynamic skill set has been honed in the fast-paced and demanding environment of the Executive Office– where she is constantly at the epicenter of balancing government, politics and private sector challenges.

Prior to joining the Baker-Polito Administration, Ms. Guyton worked on Capitol Hill and ran communications for high profile senate and congressional campaigns in New England and the Midwest.

In 2014, she spearheaded communications for Scott Brown’s New Hampshire Senate campaign. In 2012, Ms. Guyton oversaw communications to flip the seat in a razor-thin Congressional campaign victory for Rep. Jackie Walorski from Northern Indiana. Ms. Guyton first stepped on to the political scene working for Senator Kelly Ayotte in New Hampshire.

Ms. Guyton graduated from Union College in Schenectady, NY and currently resides in Boston.
