Dani Lever, communications director for New York governor Andrew Cuomo, is moving to Facebook's strategic communications response team.

She joined Cuomo's team in 2014, moved up to press secretary in 2016 and CD in 2018

Cuomo said Lever's "dedication to public service and expertise were invaluable and her work has left a lasting impact on millions of New Yorkers."

Prior to joining Cuomo, she worked for NY attorney general Eric Schneiderman and was press secretary for NYC's comptroller Bill Thompson's unsuccessful bid for mayor.

Peter Ajemian, senior deputy communications director, will succeed Lever as CD.
