Eric Schultz

President, The Schultz Group

Eric Schultz served in the Obama White House as the Principal Deputy Press Secretary and Special Assistant to the president. Recognized by Politico as the strategist “White House officials turn to in a crisis to handle communications,” Schultz advised President Obama, spoke on behalf of the administration on Air Force One and in the White House briefing room, and helped manage the administration’s proactive messaging and news-of-the-day responses.

Schultz is a veteran of numerous statewide and national campaigns. Before joining the White House, Schultz served as communications director for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, where he became "well-known among Washington reporters for his aggressive, behind-the-scenes approach," as noted by Politico. Schultz spent several years on Capitol Hill working for key U.S. senators, including now Democratic Leader Charles Schumer. Schultz, who most recently advised Netflix’s reboot of Designated Survivor, currently provides strategic communications guidance to clients in the political, financial, technology and entertainment sectors.
