Santiago Martinez is a Vice President for Data & Analytics at 270 Strategies, where he helps organizations make informed, data-driven decisions to meet their goals. He joins 270 Strategies after serving most recently as the Data and Targeting Director at America Votes. In 2012, Santiago was the North Carolina Data Director for President Obama's re-election campaign, where he used innovative techniques with reporting and targeting to build one of the most sophisticated data shops throughout the campaign's 10 battleground states.
Santiago got his start in 2008 first as a volunteer and then field organizer in North Carolina, where he aided in President Obama’s historic 14,000-vote victory. His extensive experience in the field of data and analytics includes work at Organizing for America, the grassroots organization born out of the 2008 election and dedicated to supporting the President’s policy initiatives.
Originally hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, Santiago is a lifelong fan of all Arizona sports teams, holding out hope that this will finally be the Cardinals’ year. He is an avid record collector, a habit that started after he “borrowed” some of his dad’s favorite records, and he enjoys spending his free time at the record store or at home with his turntables. Recently married and new to Washington, DC, Santiago and his wife are relishing in exploring the free museums, taking in the sights, and learning more about what this grand city has to offer.
