Hang Liu has helped shape messaging and communications for the leadership of a major nonprofit organization, a Cabinet official in the Obama administration, and a presidential campaign.
Hang is passionate about speechwriting because it combines his deep-seated commitment to public service with a lifelong interest in storytelling. Today, he crafts compelling narratives for leaders of all kinds.
Before joining West Wing Writers, Hang was the director of speechwriting at the Center for Progress (CAP). During his tenure, he crafted remarks, op-eds, lectures, public statements, and many other materials for the executive staff of our country’s leading progressive think tank. In addition, he co-authored a report with experts in CAP’s economic policy division that sets forth bold solutions for strengthening America’s trade institutions.
Previously, Hang was a presidential management fellow and speechwriter at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development under Secretary Julián Castro. In 2016, he joined the communications team at the headquarters of the Hillary for America campaign, where he helped prepare Secretary Hillary Clinton for her national media interviews.
Hang is a graduate of Harvard College and Brooklyn Law School. The son of Chinese immigrants, he was born and raised in New York City. He continues to hope — against all good sense — that brighter days await his hometown Knicks.
