 Alex Skatell Biography

Alex Skatell is an American entrepreneur and former political advisor. He was previously the Digital Director for the Republican Governors Association and Media Director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. He developed the software application iShout which became a top 25 game in the iPhone App Store. He also founded the viral news website Independent Journal Review.

While at college, Skatell invented iShout, an iPhone application reviewed in Gizmodo and featured in the "What's Hot" section of ITunes app store. At 22, he took up the position of Director of New Media and Technology for the Republican Governor's Association. In this position, he organized new media training sessions for thirty-seven gubernatorial campaigns and lead a multi-million dollar advertising effort. When election results were in, there were nine more Republican governors than in the previous cycle. After that, Skatell became the Digital Director for the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC).

Media Group of America[edit] In 2012, Skatell used $40,000 from the profits on iShout to launch the Independent Journal Review. He hired his friend Bert Atkinson to fill the position of editor and chief writer. According to an article in the New York Times, the site is a mixture of entertainment, politics, and policy. Skatell launched the site because he saw a gap in media outlets catering specifically to the "mainstream center-right audience."

In 2013, Skatell co-founded the Media Group of America, a parent company that owns the Independent Journal Review and IMGE, a digital advocacy agency with clients ranging from Boeing, General Dynamics, BMW, and General Electric. Skatell, in his role as IMGE founder, also became digital director for Australia's Liberal Party in the 2013 Federal Election. In that position, he served on the campaign to elect Tony Abbott to Prime Minister. Today the Media Group of America has nearly 100 employees with revenue exceeding $30 million annually.

In 2012, Skatell appeared in Washington Life's "The Young and the Guest List," which recognizes young achievers in the Washington D.C. area. The magazine noted that, at 25, Skatell was "responsible for all Web, video and print advertising on behalf of U.S. Senate candidates" and oversaw a multi-million dollar budget.

For his work with Australian election campaigns, Skatell won the American Association of Political Consultants' Gold Pollie award for the world's best digital campaign. He also won the same agency's gold and silver awards for best developed political apps.
