While Hilary Clinton has yet to officially announce that she’s running for president, the Washington Post is reporting that she has already filled one of her crucial positions. The report claims that Clinton has decided to hire Stephanie Hannon, a long-time Google executive, as the chief technology officer of her not-yet-announced campaign.
Hillary Rodham Clinton has hired a longtime Google executive to oversee her likely presidential campaign’s technology development and build new ways for Clinton to engage with voters, according to Democrats with knowledge of the move. Stephanie Hannon, who is Google’s director of product management for civic innovation and social impact, will become the chief technology officer of the expected Clinton campaign, according to the Democrats, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the appointment. At Clinton’s New York campaign headquarters, Hannon will serve on the senior staff and oversee a team of engineers and developers, which could include outside consultants, to devise Web sites, apps and other tools for the former secretary of state and her staff to engage with supporters and voters.
