Hart InterCivic announced today that Sam Derheimer has joined its leadership team as Director of Government Affairs. A voting and elections policy expert, Derheimer will keep Harts certification, operations, product management, sales and marketing teams apprised of legislative trends, cybersecurity advances and related issues.
The addition of the government affairs role and a director of Sams caliber signals Harts ongoing commitment to remaining at the forefront of the election technology industry, said Phillip Braithwaite, President and CEO of Hart InterCivic, a U.S. company with more than 100 years of experience providing election solutions. As Hart continues to gain market share, we remain focused on advancing democracy by providing forward-looking products and services that address the diverse needs of jurisdictions across the nation. Staying ahead of election policy best positions us to fulfill that commitment.
Derheimer comes to Hart from an election policy consultancy and 10 years service with The Pew Charitable Trusts, where he applied data analytics to optimize the effectiveness of election administration practices. His increasingly critical roles with the independent nonprofit included managing Pews Election Initiatives project team and helping develop and build the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) and the Voting Information Project (VIP), among many other projects.
I have dedicated my career to being at the front line of elections policy and technology, Derheimer said. Coming to Hart is a natural transition. The more we empower election officials with the tools and knowledge they need, the stronger our democracy. At Hart, I get to help provide the best tools.
