David Plouffe, who managed President Obama’s historic 2008 campaign, is leaving Uber to lead CZI’s policy and advocacy work. The $45 billion organization, founded by Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, is looking to shift government healthcare research spending. Plouffe will work alongside Ken Mehlman, former head of the Republican National Committee, on a bipartisan policy board. Plouffe, who served as a White House advisor until 2013, joined Uber in 2014 as senior vice president of policy and strategy.
