Max Potter, Gov. Hickenlooper’s new Communications Director

Governor John Hickenlooper informed his staff this week that Max Potter will replace the departed Eric Brown as the Governor's Communications Director.

Potter was a longtime editor at 5280 magazine before making a surprise jump to Hickenlooper's staff earlier this year in a broad communications role. Brown left the Governor's office in July for a communications job in the private sector. Kathy Green, director of communications for the Colorado Tourism Office, has served as interim Communications Director since Brown's departure.

    Here's to a very short tenure.

    And–full disclosure–Maximillian Potter (his byline) followed Hickenlooper around for his first year in office and wrote about it in this 2012 feature article for 5280: "The Happy Shrewdness of John W. Hickenlooper."

    A unique trajectory, indeed: from 5280 to Vanity Fair to Hick. I wouldn't mind hearing Potter comment on transitioning from writing about the governor to now working for the governor–two distinct and separate roles.
