Michael Duncan is a digital media expert who is responsible for leading successful online efforts for some of the most sophisticated corporate and political campaigns in modern history. Most recently, Duncan led a digital team in Israel for the re-election of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Bloomberg heralded Duncan’s work for “bringing American tactics to Israel’s race,” to help Prime Minister Netanyahu secure a surprise comeback victory.

In 2014, he implemented state-of-the-art data, digital, and social media systems for the historic re-election of U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Under Michael’s direction, McConnell’s digital campaign was widely lauded for running the most innovative online effort of the 2014 cycle, which Politico noted for using “new technology for extensive and persistent voter targeting efforts.”

Michael previously served as Vice President of the digital consulting firm Harris Media, working with numerous national nonprofits, political action committees, trade associations, and energy industry clients.

Prior to his work at Harris Media, Duncan managed digital strategy at FreedomWorks, one of the largest grassroots organizations in America. Additionally, he was responsible for online fundraising at FreedomWorks for America, the organization’s SuperPAC which supported dozens of candidates in 2012. During his tenure, FreedomWorks for America executed one of the most successful small donor SuperPAC efforts in the 2012 cycle, raising over 35% of funds and over $4 million in unitemized contributions.

A Hoosier native, Michael graduated from Indiana University with Bachelor’s degrees in Journalism and Political Science. He lives with his wife Katie in Falls Church, Virginia.
