Michael Czin, Managing Director, has worked at every level of government and campaigns, from the White House to City Hall, advising elected officials, agencies, candidates and political parties on strategic and crisis communications. 

At SKDK, he has helped a tech company that was the victim of trade secrets theft manage resulting media and litigation; guided a utility through a successful merger in a challenging regulatory environment; supported a major school district during multiple leadership changes; and more. In 2021, Mike took a leave of absence to join the Biden White House where he served as a Senior Advisor to the White House Counsel, becoming the first spokesperson for that office since the Clinton Administration.

Prior to joining SKDK, Michael served as Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s Communications Director where he was the District’s chief spokesman and led strategic communications for the Mayor and more than 60 agencies. 

Before his time in the Bowser administration, Michael was National Press Secretary for the Democratic National Committee during the 2014 election cycle, where he advised state parties, candidates and elected officials at the local, state and federal level. Previously, Michael served as a top spokesman for President Obama’s 2012 reelection and held several positions within then-Senator Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.
