The Democratic National Committee, the top decision-making body of the Democratic Party in the United States, on Friday named Indian-American Seema Nanda as its chief executive officer, making her the first Indian to be named as the operational head a major American national party.

The Democratic party in a statement said "As CEO, Seema will manage the day-to-day operations of the organization. Seema served on DNC Chair Tom Perez's transition team, which took a fresh look at the committee’s operations following the 2016 election and put in place an infrastructure that contributed to wins in 2017 and 2018."

DNC chair Tom Perez said in a statement announcing Nanda's appointment, "I'm beyond excited that Seema is bringing her talent and brilliance to the DNC."

"I've seen firsthand Seema's exceptional ability to lead. She is a seasoned manager who has a proven track record of success and a well-documented history of fighting for our Democratic values, whether it is on immigration, civil rights or leveling the playing field for our workers."
