The Democratic technology firm NGP VAN has announced the addition of Bryan Whitaker as its new chief operating officer.

Whitaker is leaving his post as technology director at the Democratic National Committee to join NGP VAN. At the DNC, Whitaker oversaw all software development and analytics work.

“This is a perfect match,” NGP VAN CEO Stu Trevelyan said in a statement on the hire. “Bryan is one of the most respected people in the progressive technology ecosystem. Our company and our clients will benefit immediately from this new relationship.”

Earlier this week, the firm announced that it will be handling database services for Organizing for Action.
