“If life is said to be better with someone alongside you, what about work? Is doing business with a partner better than going at it alone? My answer is yes. Nothing in business is more rewarding. Working together is much better than working … alone.” — Michael Eisner
One year ago, we announced a merger with Chorus Agency. As part of that announcement, we stressed our shared mission and model. We talked about how our combined efforts would allow us to scale more rapidly.
But the greatest benefit of that merger was that we gained an invaluable partner in Kate Catherall.
We wouldn’t be anywhere without Kate. She’s built out a new program aimed at providing direct support to candidates — now 63 strong. Kate also launched an online Toolbox available to all candidates, all while we continued to grow our community through our Summits across the country. And she’s shaped the strategic direction of our organization for years to come.
Beyond the numbers, Kate has touched the lives of countless first time candidates. She’s crisscrossed the country coaching our next generation of political leaders on how to run world class campaigns. And, as we celebrate many historic victories on election night in November, we will owe a debt of gratitude to her for making it happen.
Thank you to all of our supporters for helping to make this partnership a success — and a special thanks to Kate for enriching our community.
