Democratic Party of Georgia Announces Leadership Transition

September 8, 2021

Today, Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia, announced that Executive Director Scott Hogan will be transitioning out of his role after more than two years of service.

Hogan will oversee the transition process to identify a successor and stay on as Senior Advisor to DPG as the party prepares for the 2022 election cycle.

“Georgia owes a debt of gratitude to Scott Hogan for his tireless work to help turn Georgia blue. It is no understatement to say that Scott played a crucial role in Democrats securing the White House and Senate in the last year. I will forever be appreciative of his partnership and his immense contributions to our party and our state,” said Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Scott’s electoral expertise and passion for making a difference in people’s lives are exactly what Georgia Democrats needed this past election cycle, and his steadfast leadership has put our state party in a stronger position than ever before. We are grateful that Scott has agreed to continue to advise DPG as we begin our search for a new Executive Director to build on his tremendous work, and we look forward to seeing what he does next.”

“Serving as Executive Director of DPG and working to turn Georgia blue has been the honor of a lifetime. I am humbled to have played a small role in last cycle’s history-making elections, and I look forward to watching Georgia Democrats continue to make inroads in the state for years to come,” said Scott Hogan, outgoing Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “With DPG’s talented staff and dedicated officers, volunteers, and partners, I know the party is in superb shape as Democrats work to reach even greater heights in 2022 and beyond. I am thankful to Chair Congresswoman Nikema Williams and DPG’s Executive Committee for giving me this extraordinary opportunity over two years ago, and I look forward to continuing to work with them during my transition as we prepare for yet another historic election cycle and fight to elect more Democrats up and down the ticket.”

Scott Hogan has served as Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Georgia since June 2019, taking on the additional role of Senior Strategic Advisor for the Biden-Harris campaign in 2020. Prior to his work at DPG and with now-President Biden’s campaign, Hogan, an Indiana native, ran statewide races in South Carolina and Utah during the 2018 election cycle. He is a veteran of both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns, and has worked on electoral and advocacy campaigns at all levels in 20+ states and U.S. territories.
