The North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party announced Robert Haider as its new executive director Monday.

Haider, who will begin work May 1, was the 2012 campaign manager for District 42 democratic legislators Mac Schneider, Kylie Oversen and Corey Mock.

He also served as the 2014 campaign manager for agriculture commissioner candidate Ryan Taylor.

"I'm honored to have been selected for this position," Haider said in a news release. "My career has been dedicated to fighting for progress and positive change. The opportunity to serve as executive director will allow me to continue this effort and contribute to the cause of strengthening our party."

Haider most recently served as a staff assistant to the Dem-NPL House Caucus during the 2015 legislative session.

Haider will succeed Chad Oban, who has been the executive director since Dec. 2012.
