In this role, Fabiani also served as the White House’s principle spokesperson before the national media, appearing regularly on major news shows.

Fabiani’s experience with complex problem resolution also includes four years of service as deputy mayor of Los Angeles and chief of staff to Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley. In that post, he managed political strategy, media relations, policy analysis and an executive staff of 129 for the mayor. Fabiani directed day-to-day interaction between the mayor’s office and the media, general managers of city departments, the City Council, and the city’s principle private sector companies and public sector institutions.

Fabiani, who graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1982, also has served in senior positions at the United States Department of Justice and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. As a deputy assistant attorney general at the Justice Department, he was responsible for policy development for the Attorney General. As deputy assistant secretary at HUD, Fabiani implemented the federal government’s Empowerment Zone Initiative for urban revitalization.
