Former Politico CEO Jim VandeHei Adds to Team

The hiring pace is quickening.

Jim VandeHei—the former Politico CEO who is launching a media venture with former Politico writer Mike Allen—has announced another round of hires. Unsurprisingly, they’re all from Politico.

Kate Gaertner, who served as associate director of corporate strategy for Politico, will join to work on strategy. Likewise for Claire Kennedy (previously Politico’s talent acquisition manager); and Karina Carlson (account manager).

The strong of hires comes less than a week after VandeHei added two from The New York Times.
