A trusted advisor to America’s most powerful democratic leaders, Stephanie Cutter is the former Deputy Campaign Manager for Obama 2012. Called “One of the most prominent voices in the [Democratic] party, and one of its top strategists and crisis managers” by POLITICO, her political and communications experience spans two decades in both the public and private sectors. The New York Times called her “the polished, sometimes scarily organized, strategist who gets things done” who “has a long and favorable reputation with some of the most influential journalists and opinion makers in Washington.” As The Atlantic notes, “Cutter’s ability to drive home a message with force and clarity is prized.” GQ named her one of the “50 Most Powerful People in Washington.” Exclusively represented by Leading Authorities, Inc. speakers bureau, Stephanie Cutter has been at the center of every major policy and political debate for the last 20 years.

From the halls of Congress, to the campaign trail, the West Wing and the C-suite, Stephanie has crafted communications and crisis-management strategies for the nation’s leading campaigns and corporations. Most recently, Stephanie was Deputy Campaign Manager for President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign. In that capacity, she oversaw communications, media, policy, and research, and was a member of the senior strategy team. She also served as Chairman of the Board for the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Committee. Revered for her gritty perseverance and straightforward approach to analyzing the difficult issues and political headlines of the day, Stephanie offers an enlightening look at the current state of politics. 

Before joining the campaign, Stephanie was Deputy Senior Adviser to President Obama, managing message strategy and issue development . Stephanie was the chief spokesperson for the Obama-Biden transition team and served as Michelle Obama’s chief of staff for the 2008 campaign. From 2005–2006, she served as a senior advisor to Senators Harry Reid (then-minority leader) and Edward M. Kennedy. In this dual role, she crafted and managed a strategic messaging campaign that led to the Democratic takeover in the 2006 midterm elections. In the fall of 2003, John Kerry brought in Stephanie to reposition him for victory, and she later served as Communications Director for his presidential bid. From 1994 to 2001, she also held several positions in the Clinton Administration including White House Deputy Communications Director.
