Maxwell Nunes, who was director of paid media for South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg’s bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, has joined SKDK as executive VP.

For the Pete for America campaign, Nunes oversaw online acquisition, persuasion, and mobilization efforts.

Earlier, he was senior digital strategiest for Hillary for America and did digital work for the Terry McAuliffe for Virginia campaign.

Most recently, Nunes served as co-founder and partner at Steamship Media digital shop.

SKDK CEO Doug Thornell called Nunes one of the most well-regarded digital strategies in Democratic politics. He will “help our candidates win races and help our corporate and non-profit clients reach their audiences in the most targeted, strategic, and creative ways possible,” said Thornell.

SKDK handled digital efforts for Wes Moore’s successful race for governor in Maryland and the Senate Majority’s PAC push for Sen. Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire.
