Todd Van Etten

avatar for Todd Van Etten

DC Office Director
Todd Van Etten grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area where he was always curious about technology, often breaking apart perfectly good appliances to see how they worked. When he arrived at the Republican National Committee in 2006, Todd thrived on adapting the newest tools to meet the challenges of the evolving political environment. He eventually became New Media Director and in 2009 oversaw the largest technological upgrades in party history, including a complete rebranding of the flagship GOP.com. He's currently loving his slightly less-political role of Managing Director of Crowdverb, a social mobilization company, where he can apply his expertise to both corporations and campaigns. When he escapes from the beltway Todd enjoys exploring new places, most recently Thailand, Patagonia and Costa Rica. Whether he is at home or traveling, Todd is almost always listening to (and occasionally performing) music, with funk and jazz guitar being his favorites.
