    Chris Hughes

    Publisher & Editor-in-Chief, The New Republic

    In 2004 with college roommates Mark Zuckerberg and Dustin Moskovitz, Hughes co-founded Facebook, the dominant social networking site that now counts nearly a billion active users worldwide. A few years later, Hughes used his Facebook experience to design the social media and online organizing strategies of Presidential candidate Barack Obama to stunning success. Now the Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of The New Republic, a 98-year-old journal of politics and arts, Hughes is shaping the future of one of the most storied and influential intellectual news magazines in the country. Investing in narrative-driven, longform journalism, he is setting the standard for high-quality analysis adapted to the new media environment.
