Today, the Democratic Party of Georgia announced the hiring of Tolulope Kevin Olasanoye as Executive Director of the Party.
“Kevin’s expertise in building strong coalitions and steering state parties to victory up and down the ballot is exactly what we need here in battleground Georgia ahead of next year’s elections,” said Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “I am confident that under his leadership, Georgia Democrats will continue notching historic wins in 2024.”
Olasanoye is an experienced campaign operative who has worked on numerous campaigns from the municipal, county, state, and federal level. He comes to DPG from The Collective PAC, where he served as National Political & Organizing Director. He previously served as the Executive Director and Senior Advisor to the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, where he covered national political party relations and served as the Coordinated Campaign Director for Senator Cory Booker. Prior to that, Olasanoye served as the first Black Executive Director in the history of the Rhode Island Democratic Party, where he and his team built one of the largest grassroots campaigns in the state’s history and secured historic victories up and down the ballot.
“Georgia Democrats have overcome the odds to make history these past few years, and I am proud to join in the fight to continue making history,” said Olasanoye. “All eyes will be on Georgia again in 2024, and I am eager to get to work alongside party leaders, organizers, and volunteers all across the state to prove that Georgia is blue to stay.”
Olasanoye was selected with unanimous approval from DPG’s Executive Committee and will work with Chair Williams, state party staff, and the State Committee to build the roadmap to a blue Georgia in 2024.
