Reggie Love

Former Special Assistant to President Obama

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

 Reggie Love Biography

Reggie Love is a witness to history unlike any other. His introduction to Washington was working in Junior Senator Barack Obama’s mailroom. As “body man” to Obama during his first presidential campaign, Love’s job was to stay one step behind the candidate, but think and act three steps ahead on a typical eighteen-hour workday.

As President Obama’s personal aide during that momentous first term, Love sat yards from the Oval Office and often spent more time, day-in-day-out, with the President than anyone else. But while his experiences were utterly unique, the lessons he learned during his long presidential education are universal. Persistence. Responsibility. Passion for a cause greater than yourself. In short, maturity.

In gaining that maturity, Love has been singularly lucky in his mentors. At Duke University, a walk-on and a team captain of its fabled basketball team, Love learned from Coach Krzyzewksi that sports builds character. But it was President Obama who showed Love that how you conduct your life defines your character.

Accountability and serving with pride and honor were learned during unsought moments: co-coaching with the president Malia Obama’s and Sasha Obama’s basketball team; lending Obama his tie ahead of a presidential debate; managing a personal life when no hour is truly your own. From his first interview with Senator Obama, through his near-decision not to follow the president-elect to the White House, to eventually bringing LeBron, Melo, D-Wade, and Kobe to play with the President on his 49th birthday, Love drew on Coach K’s teachings as he learned to navigate Washington. But it was while owning up to losing (briefly) the President’s briefcase, playing pick up games in New Hampshire to secure votes, babysitting the children of visiting heads of state, and keeping the President company at every major turning point of his historic first campaign and administration, that Love learned how persistence and passion can lead not only to success, but to a broader concept of adulthood.

Reggie Love was the special assistant and personal aide to President Barack Obama from 2007–2011. Before that, he graduated from Duke University, where he was captain of the 2004–05 Duke Blue Devils basketball team, also a member of the 2001 NCAA national championship team. Love graduated from the Wharton School of Business in 2013 and now serves as Partner and Vice President of Transatlantic Holdings.

Speaking Topics
  • Leadership Lessons from My Time at the White House

More important than having good luck, though, is being self-aware enough to recognize and harness it. Imploring us to make the most of opportunities, Love gently updates a classic inspirational talk about preparation and success.
