Mac Cummings, Executive Chairman
After graduating Cornell in 2001, Mac co-founded Terakeet with Patrick Danial. Terakeet is the leading company in the United States in the field of Influencer Marketing and Search Engine Optimization. The company represents 125 customers in multiple countries, and employs over 200 people.
In 2008, Mac took a leave of absence from Terakeet to become director of online finance and a senior advisor to Senator and Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton. It started as three-day stint, until news broke of Clinton’s own admission that she’d been forced to lend 5 million dollars of her own money to her campaign. Cummings saw this as a moment of opportunity, raising nearly 30 million dollars online during the month of February. Having solidified his role as an expert in online political fundraising, Mac would spend the next six months working within the campaign, raising a total of 75 million dollars online. He booked the largest day of online fundraising in the history of political primaries, raising a record 10 million dollars in a single 24 hour period.
Cummings’ work did not go unnoticed, and Terakeet was quickly hired by Obama for America once the primary ended. Terakeet continued its engagement with Obama in 2012, helping the president secure his second term, acting in the role of exclusive provider of search engine optimization to the campaign. Terakeet is currently advising and providing consulting and technology to the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Mac maintains an active role in the day to day of Terakeet as CEO and at reputationmanagement.com as Executive Chairman. He resides in Skaneateles, NY.
