Kevin McNamara – Co Founder – @kevinmpmcnamara
Kevin stood in Ealing North constituency in 2015, where the Liberal Democrats crashed from 20% in 2005 to just 3% last year.
After interning in Haringey, Kevin has seen what a difference a small team can make, and how Liberal Democrats can go from humble beginnings, to contending for power locally and even to capturing a constituency. He wants to help build that across the country.
Joshua Dixon – Co Founder – @joshdixontweets
Josh stood in the Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner constituency in 2015, where the Liberal Democrats crashed from 16% in 2010 to 5% last year.
Josh is passionate about Tim Farron’s “pick a ward and win it” approach and wants to bring it to life in the party. He is the youngest member of the Liberal Democrat Federal Executive and is the Liberal Youth liaison.
Gareth Lewis Shelton – Director – @garethalteran
Gareth has never stood for election and currently runs his own start-up, PopUp Painting. He is an MSc student in Political Economy at the LSE.
He has experience in launching an SME, building a strong brand, and bringing about organisational change to scale up. He wants to bring this approach to the Liberal Democrats so grassroots groups can start and grow.
