ActBlue is excited to announce the newest additions to the organization’s executive leadership team. Candace King will serve as ActBlue’s next Chief People & Culture Officer, and Peter Slutsky will serve as the new Head of Outreach and Chief Revenue Officer. Candace and Peter will be essential to the organization’s work as we prepare for the 2024 elections and beyond.

“I am thrilled for Candace and Peter to join ActBlue at such a critical time, as we help progressive candidates, campaigns, and organizations leverage our tools and innovative technology to deliver big wins this November. Candace and Peter bring talent, expertise, and passion that will add value to organization as we support Democrats up and down the ballot, build sustainable digital infrastructure for the grassroots movement, and establish our vision for ActBlue’s future in the decades ahead. I am excited to see what we can accomplish together,” said Regina Wallace-Jones, CEO of ActBlue
