An elected statewide leader, technology entrepreneur and acclaimed public affairs professional, combined with a global network of political and thought leaders have placed Saul at the highest intersections of American politics and government for nearly three decades.
A former two-time Chairman of Michigan’s Republican Party and candidate for Chairman of the Republican National Committee, Saul’s extensive campaign experience ranges from chairing state legislative campaign committees to advising presidential campaigns and national leaders, such as Newt Gingrich. His insights are invaluable to clients who understand influencing public policy and politics outside the Washington, D.C. Beltway are critical to comprehensive public affairs and advocacy campaigns.
Saul’s unique ability to bring political and technology business leaders together was evident when he was tasked in 2009 to head up RNC Chairman Michael Steele’s Transition Team on Technology, where he led the RNC’s first Tech Summit. His successes there led to Chairman Steele and his successor, Chairman Reince Priebus, to tap Saul to lead the RNC’s newly created Committee on Technology. His leadership there was not unnoticed by Republican congressional leaders as Saul was also tapped as a consultant to the U.S. House Policy Committee on New Media and Technology.
In addition to being a founding principal of Coast to Coast Strategies, Saul is co-founder and co-owner of Quick Connect VOIP, which is a broadband and VOIP provider in Michigan. He and his partner also own Quick Connect USA which is a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier providing local and long distance service to their customers.
