Over his more than dozen years in politics, Brett Schenker has made his mark in Washington, DC, and in the political e-communications arena. Schenker’s work has ranged from legislative activities, campaigns, and political action committees (PACs) to advising associations and multi-million dollar corporations on technology solutions, new media, and email strategy.
Email Deliverability and Digital Strategy
Schenker has most recently worked for NGP VAN as their Sr. Email Deliverability Specialist. He’s responsible for overseeing the delivery of tens of millions of emails daily not just keeping up good relations with others in the space, but also tracking trends, shifts in email, and knowing how best to resolve issues as well as best practices to guarantee success.
He’s spoken on the subjects in webinars, conferences, published white papers, and worked as a consultant for organizations and companies successfully building email and digital programs from scratch as well as helping to fix programs in need.
In 2008, Brett launched Graphic Policy, a website/blog that mixes geekdom and politics. Since its founding, the site has focused on transparency, inclusion, and progressive values not just reporting on news, but also advocating for a broader community.
The site has morphed from its “political roots,” to generally covering the comic industry with previews, reviews, interviews, and general convention coverage. It is the leading site for demographics reporting monthly on what data is available and the shifting comics fandom. The research has made an impact on the industry guiding publisher plans.
In 2010 the site launched Graphic Policy Television and in 2011 the site expanded with Graphic Policy Radio, its ongoing podcast. GP TV has had over 16.5 million views since its launch with over 282,000 hours of video watched.
Launched in 2017, Board Game Today spun out of Graphic Policy. The site focuses on the board, card, and roleplaying industry and community.
