Silver Spring, MD – Fresh off of playing a leading role winning back the U.S. House of Representatives for Democrats, Matt Fuehrmeyer is joining Summers Strategies as Vice President.
As the Director of Research and Strategic Communications at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), Fuehrmeyer drove research, messaging, and political strategy and played a critical role in the Democrats recapturing the House majority for the first time since 2011. The DCCC ultimately flipped 40 seats from red to blue in 2018 – the biggest House win for Democrats since Watergate in 1974.
A veteran of Democratic campaigns since 2004, Fuehrmeyer joined the DCCC in 2015 after serving as Research Director and Communications Adviser for Senator Al Franken’s successful 2014 re-election campaign. He previously served as the Research Director for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s against-all-odds re-election campaign in 2010, and for Senator Franken’s historically close 2008 campaign. Additionally, Fuehrmeyer was part of winning teams at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in both 2006 and 2012.
“Matt is the best in the business, and we’re thrilled that he’s joining Summers Strategies to grow the firm and to help our clients make the world a better place,” said Summers Strategies founder Jon Summers. “I’ve seen Matt in action, and I couldn’t be more excited to work with him once again. Matt’s career has allowed him to work in every corner of the country on communications strategy, advertising, and earned media. Our clients will truly benefit from his vast experience and intellect.”
“The hard work of advancing progressive causes is never finished, and I can’t think of a better way to continue that work than by joining Jon and the team at Summers Strategies,” said Fuehrmeyer. “I can’t wait to hit the ground running and get to work making a difference for the wide range of clients, candidates, and causes that align with our values.”
Summers Strategies works with businesses, national nonprofit organizations, trade associations, government agencies, elected officials and progressive political candidates on communications strategy, media relations, marketing and advertising.
