“Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so.” — Noam Chomsky
Haley is Alloy’s CEO based in Alloy’s DC and SF offices.
Haley has a passion and track record of building and leading technology teams to tackle challenging issues for public good, ranging from famine relief to modernizing government.
She spent more years than she ever anticipated as a key technology advisor in the White House spearheading many of Obama’s major tech initiatives, and began her work with him during the 2008 campaign on what was, in retrospect, hilariously dubbed “The New Media Team.”
During her time at the White House, she co-founded and helped lead the United States Digital Service — a “start-up” that brings the country’s top technology talent into government to fix the highest impact services so they work better and cost less. Her first job in politics was on the Kerry Campaign in 2004, and she started her career at CNN when she thought she wanted to become a journalist.
Haley pretends to live in San Francisco — her native home — while still spending much of her time in Washington DC.
