FiscalNote Appoints Josh Resnik President and Chief Operating Officer

Seasoned Technology & Corporate Leader to Spearhead Efforts for Growth Optimization and Operational Excellence as Company Approaches Public Market Listing

FiscalNote, a leading AI-driven enterprise SaaS company that delivers legal and regulatory data and insights, today announces the appointment of current Senior Vice President, General Counsel & Chief Content Officer Josh Resnik to the newly created position of President & Chief Operating Officer.

Reporting to CEO & Co-founder Tim Hwang, in his new role Resnik will oversee day-to-day corporate operations, including the Commercial, Business Development, Marketing, Content, and People functions, providing coordinated oversight over FiscalNote’s diversified lines of business and ensuring optimal allocation of resources to drive efficient revenue growth. Resnik also will ensure that the company’s business lines are well-positioned to continue to integrate new acquisitions and scale both organically and inorganically.

Resnik joined FiscalNote in 2018 and currently serves as General Counsel for the company, in addition to leading the full-suite of global content solutions as Chief Content Officer. As General Counsel, Resnik has successfully navigated and managed the company’s complex legal and regulatory processes, as well as its robust and accelerated M&A and financing initiatives, and built a high performing Legal department. In his role as Chief Content Officer, Resnik serves as Publisher of CQ Roll Call, oversees FiscalNote’s EU-based policy analysis, and has managed the company’s expansion further into political and economic intelligence with its recent acquisitions of Oxford Analytica and FrontierView. FiscalNote’s information solutions now enable the world’s decision makers to identify and act upon a broad array of opportunities and risks in an increasingly complex legal, policy, and macroeconomic environment.

“The new role of President & Chief Operating Officer is a critical one at a pivotal time for our company, and there is no one better equipped to fulfill its duties and potential than Josh Resnik,” said Hwang. “FiscalNote continues to set an aggressive pace as we approach the public markets, especially as we accelerate our growth, drive greater efficiency, and expand the variety and nature of solutions we offer to our customers. Josh has made an incredibly positive and impressive impact at FiscalNote, and I look forward to continuing to work with Josh by my side as we become a public company and further strengthen our relationships with our global customers, investors, and shareholders.”

“It has been an honor to work alongside FiscalNote’s extraordinary leadership and the many talented team members who have enabled the company to reach this point,” said Resnik. “But this is just the beginning for FiscalNote, and I look forward to continuing to fulfill the vision of the company’s founders. When they started FiscalNote in 2013, Tim, Gerald, and Jonathan saw the potential to build a category creator that would change how people connect with their governments. With the right execution we will continue to achieve new heights as we solve increasingly complex problems for our customers.”

“I’ve had the privilege of working closely with Josh for the past several years, and it’s clear his combination of deep expertise, superior management skills, and high standards of operational excellence have helped to position FiscalNote exceptionally well for entry into the public markets,” said FiscalNote Board of Directors member Gen. Stanley McChrystal (Ret.), former commander of U.S. and International Security Assistance Forces (ISAF) Afghanistan. “Josh has executed with agility and precision, precisely the skills that FiscalNote needs in this role to further ensure the operational standards that will build and sustain investor and shareholder confidence as the company continues to fulfill its core mission, accelerate growth, and expand its global customer base. With Tim and Josh leading the way forward, I am confident this company is in great hands and could not be more excited about its future.”

Resnik has more than twenty five years of experience as an executive, attorney, and business leader in both startup and established corporate environments. Prior to joining FiscalNote, Resnik was a senior executive and member of the Board of Directors of Spree Commerce, serving as COO/General Counsel and helping lead the company to a successful acquisition by First Data Corporation (now Fiserv). Prior to Spree Commerce, he led the Digital division of Gannett, and was a senior in-house attorney at AOL. Earlier in his career, he spent several years in private law practice representing clients in the TMT sector in corporate transactions and regulatory matters. Resnik has been twice named to Washingtonian Magazine‘s “Tech Titans” list, in 2019 and 2021, has advised numerous tech startups as well as a venture capital firm investing in the tech and media ecosystem, and has served on multiple Boards of Directors.

Resnik holds a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and a J.D. from Boston University School of Law, where he was named an Edward F. Hennessey Distinguished Scholar and G. Joseph Tauro Scholar, as well as earning the Dean’s Award in Communications Law.
