Well at least there’s one president that we’re excited about.

Our friend and Politico Executive, Peter Cherukuri, is leaving the company to take on a new and highly impressive role as president and chief innovation officer of 1776 – a global incubator and seed fund that helps engineer the success of the world’s most promising startups tackling important challenges. Before Peter was executive vice president for Audience Solutions and president of POLITICO Focus, he managed the DC bureau for The Huffington Post and was publisher of Roll Call. He has served on the board of 1776, the National Press Foundation, and the West Virginia University Reed College of Media and the Close-Up Foundation.

And the list doesn’t even stop there. One of Peter’s many suits was worn when he played “Sam the Piano Player” in the Picnic Theatre Company’s production of Casablanca. To say he wears many hats is an understatement and we look forward to seeing how well the next one fits.

Congratulations, Peter!
