INDIANAPOLIS – The executive director of the Indiana Republican Party has left the state to work for Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder while its former spokesman has joined a prominent Indianapolis-based strategy firm.
Kyle Robertson’s last day as the party’s executive director was Nov. 30.
“We are not surprised that Gov. Snyder would benefit from Kyle’s experience,” Indiana GOP chairman Tim Berry said. “We wish him the best at this exciting opportunity.”
Robertson served as a campaign manager for Gov. Mike Pence and been involved in a number of other campaigns.
Also, Pete Seat left his post as communications for the Indiana Republican Party earlier this fall. On Wednesday, Hathaway Strategies, a public affairs consulting firm, announced Seat would join the group as a senior project manager.
“At Hathaway Strategies we work to provide our corporate and political clients with innovative and creative solutions to meet their unique goals,” said Anne Hathaway, the firm’s president. “Pete has a record of results in doing just that as a communications strategist and spokesperson at the local, state and national levels and I am thrilled to welcome him to our growing and dynamic team.”
