Mike Webb

Mike Webb is the former Sales & Marketing Director for Civil Beat.

Before moving to Hawaii, he was the Vice President of Communications for the award-winning, nonprofit, investigative newsroom ProPublica. There he was responsible for developing partnerships with other news organizations and ensuring that their stories had impact.

Prior to ProPublica, Webb worked at the Brennan Center for Justice where he promoted their work on voting rights, and democracy and national security issues, and before that he served as the Publicity Director for America’s oldest weekly magazine – The Nation. Webb also dabbled in politics, working as a full-time researcher on Bill Bradley’s unfortunately failed 2000 presidential campaign and as deputy campaign manager on the successful Marty Markowitz for Brooklyn Borough President campaign.

Before his conscience and desire to ‘give back’ got the best of him, Webb chased his passion – music. He played bass in a band called Spitball that headlined the legendary New York City club CBGBs and in numerous other bands that had no claim to “fame,” but had lots of fun. He was also part of the Columbia Records teams behind three of the ’90s seminal debut albums – Jeff Buckley’s “Grace,” Nas’ “Illmatic,” and Alice In Chains’ “Facelift.”

Since moving to Hawaii, Webb has joined the board of directors of Hawaii Appleseed and the Drug Policy Forum of Hawaii. Follow him on Twitter @GMikeWebb.
