Martin Hamburger is that rare entity in politics, and life in general: a proud New Jerseyan. Beyond that, he’s a clear-eyed strategist, forceful creative voice, and disciplined campaigner with wide-ranging political and message development experience. Having worked in progressive politics, Congress, Democratic Party organizations and political campaigns all of his “adult” life, he brings to campaigns an eye for the subtle details, the ones that show voters candidates who are real, and bring messages to life. As president and founder of The Hamburger Company, Martin has won awards for his creative advertisements, and plaudits for his innovative campaign strategies and insightful strategic judgment. He is sought-after as a trainer and educator as well, having developed campaign skills exercises, campaign simulations and curricula for diverse organizations and institutions such as The Nature Conservancy, the US Forest Service, Planned Parenthood, and American University. Martin is a certified professional ski instructor and avid cyclist, and takes his medium rare with lettuce, tomato, pickles and ketchup.
