RNC Announces Jeff Larson As CEO of 2016 National Convention

- February 11, 2015

WASHINGTON –Today, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus announced that Jeff Larson will serve as the CEO for the 2016 National Convention in Cleveland, OH. Last week, Larson was also recently tapped to serve as an RNC Senior Advisor.

 
“Jeff's leadership over the last two election cycles has been critical for our success as a committee, and I’m personally grateful that he will serve as convention CEO,” said Chairman Priebus.  “As Chief of Staff in 2011 and 2012, Jeff helped us right the ship at the RNC when we overcame a $25 million debt to break fundraising records. I am confident that Jeff will serve our party well in both of his new roles.”
 
“The RNC has a lot of demands heading into the presidential cycle, and producing a successful national convention for our nominee is one of the most important,” said RNC Chief of Staff Katie Walsh. “I'm looking forward to the opportunities ahead and working with Jeff to organize a great convention in Cleveland, where we will nominate the next president of the United States.”
 
“I am honored to serve as the CEO of the Republican National Convention. From planning and preparation, to execution and implementation, I will work to the best of my abilities to ensure the Republican Party holds a successful national convention to showcase not only our nominee but also our Party’s vision for the future of this country."

Jeff Larson served as RNC Senior Advisor for the 2014 election cycle after serving as Chief of Staff during the 2012 presidential election cycle. Last cycle, Jeff ran the NRSC independent expenditure arm that helped win 9 senate seats. He has an extensive background as a businessman and political strategist. He served as the CEO of the 2008 Host Committee for the Republican National Convention. Earlier in his career, he was a campaign staffer for George H. W. Bush, a Regional Political Director for the RNC, and an advisor on both of George W. Bush's presidential campaigns.
