Duane Baughman | President and Creative Director
Duane founded The Baughman Company in 1995 and quickly rocketed to the top of his industry.  In 2006, Baughman was one of only 6 national Democratic mail strategists hired by the DCCC to develop and execute the mail campaign ultimately responsible for winning back the Democratic majority in the House of Representatives. In 2008, Baughman managed the development of over 30 million micro-targeted pieces of mail and a multi-million dollar budget resulting in 20 statewide primary victories for Hillary Clinton's campaign.  In 2010, Baughman oversaw mail programs that re-elected 11 of 12 incumbents.  That same year saw the Sundance premiere and nationwide release of Baughman's critically acclaimed feature length documentary film “BHUTTO,” which captured the life and assassination of Pakistan's Benazir Bhutto, the world's first woman elected to lead a Muslim nation.

Nick Holder | Vice President and National Director of Campaigns


Nick joins The Baughman Company after serving as Chief of Staff for Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA), where he oversaw the political efforts of one of the most vulnerable incumbents in the country. In 2010, under Nick’s leadership, McNerney was one of only a handful of Democrats in Republican leaning seats to return to Congress. And in 2012, and despite facing the largest outside spending disparity in the country for an incumbent, Nick orchestrated a double digit win for McNerney against one of the best funded candidates in recent years. Nick has also served as the top staffer to the Vice Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s Frontline program and previously served as Press Secretary for Congressman Tim Bishop. Having overseen multi-million dollar direct mail campaigns utilizing cutting edge targeting and voter contact strategies, Nick heads up The Baughman Company’s campaign and political operations.
