About Tenoch Flores
Tenoch Flores is a strategic communications consultant with fifteen years of experience in advocacy and campaign communications. His combined experience in the political, public relations agency, non-profit, and legislative space informs a unique understanding of the challenges and opportunities associated with modern strategic communication campaigns.
From 2009 to 2015, Tenoch led communications strategy for the California Democratic Party during three of the most successful election cycles in the Party’s history. As communications director for the largest state party organization in the nation, he was responsible for creating and implementing all internal and external messaging during a period that saw Democrats recapture the governor’s office, sweep every constitutional statewide office (twice), elect strong legislative majorities, pick up four new Democratic congressional districts and pass Proposition 30 to end cuts to education and social services.
Earlier in his career, Tenoch was the media relations manager for the ACLU of Southern California where he was responsible for shaping the organization’s message and managing media interactions immediately following the attacks of 9/11. His crisis communications skills were honed while working in the nation’s second largest media market during a period that witnessed extreme hostility directed at the organization’s mission and core values.
Tenoch is bilingual and has extensive experience working with Spanish language media. He also lectures on communications strategy and campaign communications at the University of San Francisco’s Masters of Public Affairs program.
