Chris Hamilton joined HSP Direct in the summer of 2013 as a Creative intern and began work as a Copywriter in May 2015. He was promoted to Account Representative in January 2018. His favorite parts of the job include finding creative ways to maximize net dollars raised on house letters, finding creative concepts and techniques to acquire donors more effectively, and — above all — breaking fundraising records for his clients.
Prior to working for HSP Direct, Chris campaigned for multiple conservative candidates. He caught the “political bug” in high school, then interned with the Tim Burns for Congress campaign (PA-12), the Pennsylvania GOP Victory effort, U.S. Senator Pat Toomey’s Johnstown, PA home office, and the Cuccinelli for Governor campaign. He also dipped his toes into politics himself with an unsuccessful bid for Purcellville Town Council in 2016…and confirmed that he prefers to help others win elections instead of running himself.
When he’s not working, Chris spends his spare time with his fellow members of Free Life Church, where he serves as a sound tech and “living jungle gym.” (He’s still hiding the fact that he’s just one of the kids…don’t tell their parents!)
