    David Plouffe

    2008 Obama Campaign Manager; Analyst, Bloomberg News

    David Plouffe is widely referred to as the “architect” of President Barack Obama’s two presidential campaign victories. President Obama called him “the unsung hero of this campaign, who built political campaign, I think, in the history of the United States of America.” Plouffe served as Obama’s senior advisor until 2013. Previously, he managed political campaigns at all levels, produced award-winning television advertisements, consulted to leading Fortune 500 companies and has been a ubiquitous presence on national news shows. Plouffe is the author of The New York Times best seller, "The Audacity to Win."
