ARLINGTON: Steven Schneider, former chief executive at Logi Analytics, joined Phone2Action as CEO while Co-Founder Jeb Ory transitions into a new role as President and Chief Strategy Officer.
Phone2Action, the leading public affairs and government relations technology platform, has expanded its leadership team.
“This is a milestone in our continuing journey to support public affairs, government relations, and advocacy professionals,” Ory said. “In Steven, I see someone with the experience we need, the drive we want and the mindset of a founder. He’s the perfect match for our future.”
Schneider, a software engineer by training, founded OnDemandIQ, a company that was acquired by Logi Analytics in 2008. He went on to hold leadership positions in operations, products and worldwide sales before taking the helm as CEO in 2016, leading the company to double in size.
Schneider joins Phone2Action just months after it acquired KnowWho, the world’s largest directory of public officials and influencers, and GovPredict, a software company that provides legislative, regulatory, and campaign finance intelligence. Backed by growth equity firm Frontier Growth since 2019, Phone2Action provides the most comprehensive government relations and public affairs solutions available, serving major clients such as Walmart, Airbnb, and the American Heart Association.
“Steven brings a wealth of company building experience to Phone2Action,” said Andrew Lindner, a partner at Frontier. “Partnering with him at this stage will expand upon our commitment to our customers to provide a government relations software platform with the broadest set of capabilities and data.”
Schneider said: “Phone2Action has built an exceptional product and a passionate team. It is the industry standard for organizations that need to monitor and shape public policy, and we’re going to continue to drive welcomed solutions for our field that will lead to massive growth. I’m proud to be part of it.”
Ory, who has served as CEO since Phone2Action was founded in 2012, transitions to a new role as President and Chief Strategy Officer, responsible for product strategy and corporate development.
