Nick Ayers


Summary

Over the course of his career in politics and business, Nick Ayers has distinguished himself as a man who gets things done. He began his career by working with Sonny Perdue, the former governor of Georgia. As an Executive Aide from 2001 to 2002, Nick Ayers oversaw scheduling and other details during Perdue's campaign for governor. Upon Perdue’s election, Ayers joined the Office of Governor Sonny Perdue in the capacity of Senior Advisor. His responsibilities included directing communications, organizing political activities, and leading the governor's political action committee. During this time, he managed various other non-governmental activities for the governor, as well. In 2006, Ayers served as Perdue's Campaign Manager for what ultimately proved to be a successful re-election effort.

Capitalizing on these accomplishments, Nick Ayers accepted the post of Executive Director for the Republican Governors Association, a role he held until 2011. He and the more than 30 people working for him dramatically increased fundraising profits, which resulted in the installation of seven additional Republican governors across the country, including governors in key states like Ohio and Florida. In 2011, he served as Campaign Manager for Tim Pawlenty for President.

Nick Ayers has received considerable recognition for his political and business successes. He was awarded Power Player of the Week recognition by Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace in 2010, and he has also earned recognition in The Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine, and The Washington Post, among other publications.

Additionally, Nick Ayers presently sits on the Board of Directors for Leading the Way, a global Christian outreach initiative, and he lends his leadership capabilities to EverFi and TweetMyJobs as a member of each venture's Advisory Board. Primarily, Ayers holds a senior-level role with Target Enterprises in Los Angeles, where he oversees media placement efforts for a range of political campaigns, private firms, and other groups.
