Orrin Evans

Orrin Evans is a partner at Left Hook.

Orrin brings over a decade of experience in campaign management, strategic communications, and public affairs to our political and private sector clients.

In 2020 Orrin led the campaign and media strategy for over a dozen winning races and initiatives. This included George Gascón for Los Angeles District Attorney, which the Los Angeles Times described as “the most important item before voters in 2020” after the presidential contest.

His deep California experience includes campaigns for U.S. Senate, Governor, and numerous statewide candidate and ballot propositions. His down ballot successes include helping Democrats in San Diego County gain their first majority on the Board of Supervisors in a generation and flipping the top-targeted State Senate districts in 2018 and 2020 from red to blue.

In 2014, Orrin was campaign manager for Alex Padilla for California Secretary of State, which resulted in Padilla becoming the second Latino official ever elected to statewide office in California’s history.

A Los Angeles native, Orrin cut his political teeth working for then-Senator Barack Obama in the 2007 Iowa Presidential Caucuses. During the general election, Orrin managed the Get Out The Vote operation in Indiana, which resulted in the first Democratic Presidential nominee to win the state in 44 years.

Orrin served as Senior Advisor to U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack in the Obama Administration, leading communication strategy on initiatives including First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign, and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act's Rural Tour.

Orrin is a graduate of Columbia University and resides in Los Angeles with his fiancé Ashley and Rottweiler Poppy.
