As a counselor to world leaders, CEOs, celebrities, and political movements, Steve Schmidt, over the past two decades, has played an influential role in American politics and helped navigate some of the most high-stakes corporate crises and business strategy challenges of our time. In the aftermath of the 2016 American presidential election, Steve has emerged as one of the strongest and most incisive voices commenting on U.S. politics and global issues. Wellknown for his part in the 2008 U.S. election cycle, Steve was credited for transforming Senator John McCain’s campaign “from corpse to contender.” He previously architected a similar turnaround for California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Steve was a top strategist in the 2004 campaign to re-elect President George W. Bush and served in the Bush administration, during which time he led the successful confirmations of two U.S. Supreme Court Justices.
