Columbia, SC – SCGOP Chairman Chad Connelly today announced Matt Moore as SCGOP Executive Director. Moore previously served as SCGOP Transition Director.

“Job number one for our South Carolina Republican Party is to build on our historic victories while upholding our conservative principles. Matt has an outstanding record of doing just that,” said Connelly. “He is well respected by Republicans across our state and has worked closely with many of our activists and elected officials. I am extremely confident in Matt’s ability to guide the SCGOP team as we work to take back the White House in 2012.”

“I look forward to serving Chairman Connelly, the SCGOP Executive Committee, and our Republican leaders as we ensure that our South Carolina Republican Party continues to prosper,” said Moore. “The next two years offer an incredible opportunity to spread our message of transformational, conservative reforms like attacking the deficit, cutting spending, and limiting federal intrusions.”

Moore, 29, is a former Deputy Political Director at the national Republican Governors Association (RGA) and Deputy Director at the Georgia Republican Party. He has served as an aide to two Republican governors and has advised three winning gubernatorial campaigns on technology and grassroots mobilization. Moore’s private sector experience includes systems engineering projects at The Home Depot, Nortel Networks, and ALCOA.

Prior to serving as SCGOP Transition Director, Moore served as Executive Director of the South Carolina Club for Growth, a group of citizens dedicated to the Ronald Reagan doctrine of lower taxes, smaller government and strong free enterprise.

Moore earned a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (with honors) and a Minor in Law from Georgia Tech and will soon complete his Master of Arts in Economics at the University of South Carolina. He is a member of Shandon Baptist Church in Columbia.

Connelly said additional staffing decisions would be announced later this week.
