A savvy political consultant and consummate insider, Reince Priebus knows how to navigate lawmaking and political processes – from the private sector to the White House.

Reince Priebus is a decisive and pragmatic bridge builder, who reformed and modernized the Republican National Committee, and managed the White House as the first Chief of Staff to President Donald Trump.

A skilled negotiator who knows how to persuade competing factions to unite behind a common goal, he is credited as one of the chief architects of the historic Republican victory in 2016. Named White House Chief of Staff within days of Trump’s win, Priebus managed daily operations, collaborated with Members of Congress, and worked to advance the President’s agenda.

Prior to his White House service, Priebus served three terms as RNC Chairman, emerging as one of the longest serving and most successful leaders in party history. First elected in 2011, he helped rescue the RNC’s finances, repair its operations, and rebuild their ground organization, priming the party for their momentous win.

 “I took the RNC from oblivion,” says Priebus, “without drama, mistakes, or infighting.”

Admired by his GOP colleagues for offering hard work, determination, and trust, Priebus put out administrative brushfires as well as articulated strategic vision.

Before breaking onto the national scene, Priebus honed his skills working his way up through the leadership ranks of the Wisconsin GOP, becoming its youngest Chairman in 2007 at age 35. During his tenure as Chairman, the Wisconsin GOP won control over both chambers of the state legislature, reclaimed the governorship, and scored two additional congressional seats, as well as a Senate seat.

Priebus grew up in Wisconsin and volunteered for his first political campaign at age 16. He attended the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, where he served as student body president. Later, he attended the University of Miami law school, where he earned cum laude honors and was elected student bar association president. 

Priebus currently serves as Political Analyst for CBS News and is an officer in the U.S. Navy Reserves. Prior to his role at CBS News, he served as a visiting Fellow at Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School. Priebus was recognized as a "Rising Star" in 2009 by Super Lawyers magazine. In 2016, Time magazine named the then RNC Chairman to their "100 Most Influential People" list.

With audiences, Priebus is a compelling and energetic storyteller. The former RNC chief shares stories from behind-the-scenes at the White House, the machinery of insider Washington, and triumphs and failures from his long career. He articulates his opinions with frankness and candor, and keeps the conversation lively and entertaining.


The former White House Chief of Staff recognizes that in politics, success comes in many forms. “We can’t be chasing the perfect all the time. Sometimes you have to take good and put it in your pocket and take the win,” Priebus says.

The longest serving RNC Chairman believes that current political trends may be unpredictable, but should be embraced. “There's disruption all over the world – it's what people are gravitating towards,” he explains. Priebus believes politicians have to be in touch with the pulse of the people to win their support.
