We are very happy to anounce that Tom Kunzler has joined the Public Matters team.
As a dedicated consultant Tom will mainly focus on clients in the tech sector, using his broad experience in this fast growing sector and his extensive knowledge of tech and IT-related issues. Fast technological developments and increasing calls for regulation in this sector make the public affairs function of organisations even more important, and with his extensive expertise he provides support to navigate through this environment in the most effective way.

As an allrounder with a focus on tech Tom will use his experience from local politics where he has had various roles within the Dutch Liberal Democratic Party (D66). Currently, he is secretary of communications for D66 in the city of Utrecht. He has worked five years at Open State Foundation, the leading Dutch NGO on public sector transparency, where he was responsible for advocacy on issues regarding election transparency, mobility as a service and freedom of information. In addition to his work at Public Matters Tom loves craft beer, festivals and electronic dance music.
