Jeff DeWit is an American businessman and politician from the state of Arizona. A member of the Republican Party, DeWit became the State Treasurer of Arizona in 2015, succeeding Doug Ducey. DeWit has announced that he will not run for reelection in 2018.
Early life and education
DeWit received his degree in Business Administration and Finance from the University of Southern California, and began his career in 1992 at Smith Barney Shearson. In 1999, DeWit started a stock trading company called ECHOtrade, in which he served as CEO for over 14 years.
In politics, DeWit has served as a Precinct Committeeman, State Committeeman, and has walked to gather signatures as well as distribute literature for other Republican candidates. He was also appointed by the Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party to serve on AZGOP Redistricting Committee.
In 2014, he sought the office of Treasurer for the state of Arizona, a position being vacated by Doug Ducey, who instead ran for Governor of Arizona after serving for one term. DeWit won the August primary, defeating his opponents former Mayor Hugh Hallman and former state party Chairman Randy Pullen by a large margin. DeWit was unopposed in the general election, and was therefore the presumptive Treasurer of the State of Arizona.
Currently, DeWit also serves as the chief operating officer of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's Presidential campaign. DeWit has announced that he will not run for reelection at the end of his term as State Treasurer.
