Mark Speidel

Director of Media Buying


Mark’s experience in the digital media industry across platforms provides a unique perspective on running effective digital campaigns for progressive candidates and causes.

Mark was raised in New Jersey and is a proud graduate of The University of Maryland. After majoring in Government and Politics, Mark chose to stay in the Washington DC area and found himself working on a social media sentiment analysis project focusing on politics. Building on that experience, Mark went to work at another progressive political agency, and then a programmatic technology vendor where he shifted his focus to direct response, corporate advertising. With an eye on this critical election ahead of us, Mark decided that he wanted to get back into the political field and joined The New Media Firm to champion progressive values. In his free time Mark enjoys riding his bike, playing intramural sports, and supporting DC United.
