David Plouffe, an architect of President Obama's winning campaign and specialist in the intersection of grassroots and tech, joins Precision — and co-founders Stephanie Cutter and Teddy Goff — as "of counsel."

What they're saying: Cutter pointed to "David’s experience in creating and driving data-driven strategies and managing integrated campaigns."

  • Goff said: "David is a legend to just about every young person who worked on the Obama campaigns."
  • Plouffe said Precision wowed with "innovative work for the Democratic National Convention and the inaugural events."

The big picture: Plouffe was a top Uber executive, leading global policy and communications.

  • He helped Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan launch the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, where he remains an adviser on the criminal justice and immigration portfolios.
  • Plouffe is on the boards of Oscar Health, the Obama Foundation, and Fwd.US.
