DNC Appoints First Woman CTO

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) appointed Nellwyn Thomas as its new chief technology officer (CTO) – making Thomas the first woman to serve in the position – and Kat Atwater as deputy CTO. This is also the first time that all of the DNC tech team’s senior leadership positions are held by women. Thomas was previously the deputy analytics chief for the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign, and she also worked for Facebook and Etsy. Atwater moved up within the DNC from tech political and engagement director, but she has also worked at Blue Labs, the Service Employees International Union, and the 2008 Clinton campaign.
