Republican National Committee Hires Chuck DeFeo as Chief Digital Officer

NEW YORK, July 30, 2013 (via Politico) – The Republican National Committee has hired Chuck DeFeo to be its chief digital officer, party leaders told POLITICO, the latest move in a sustained post-2012 push to catch up online with Democrats.

DeFeo comes to the committee from Edelman, where he is a senior vice president in charge of the Washington office’s digital issues management and public affairs group. He managed the digital effort for George W. Bush’s 2004 reelection campaign, where voter contact tools were pioneered during an era when the GOP had the advantage.

Party officials say they want to start integrating a more digital, data and technology-focused approach into how every department operates.  Read More >
