Benjamin Clark – Online Editorial Director

Benjamin Coffey Clark was the first Editorial Director for the magazine's website where he was responsible for creating the overall tone and content of the online publication and email newsletters, as well the site’s current design which was launched in August 2007. He orchestrated a variety of business development, marketing and public relations strategies to grow the digital publication.
Previously, Ben worked on several political campaigns, as a reporter and a new media consultant at The Harbour Group. As a consultant, he helped clients develop effective online communications strategies, and conducted media outreach, issue analysis and investigative research to complement lobbying, legislative, legal, and crisis communication team operations. 
Initially a staffer of Howard Dean’s presidential campaign, following Sen. John Kerry’s 2004 primary victory, Ben served as the Director of Communications and Operations for the Running For Change Political Action Committee. Utilizing the latest online communications, grassroots field and traditional public relations tactics, the PAC raised just under one million dollars for Sen. Kerry’s election efforts.
Prior to that, as the lead political reporter for the Warwick (RI) Beacon, Ben worked on virtually every section of the newspaper and documented the tragic West Warwick Station nightclub fire.
A Connecticut native, Ben graduated from his hometown Wesleyan University, where he studied Film and American Studies and swam long distance freestyle and played water polo. Currently he lives and works in DC, and practices yoga whenever possible.
