Hillary Clinton's potential presidential bid just got more serious.
The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Clinton has hired Stephanie Hannon, Google's director of product management for civic innovation and social impact, to be the campaign's chief technology officer, citing Democrats with knowledge of her move.
Hannon will be based out of the campaign's New York headquarters and will oversee engineers and developers in designing sites and apps that could help Clinton better engage with voters.
Hannon has been at Silicon Valley for two decades and would be the first woman to serve as chief technology officer in a major presidential campaign, according to The Washington Post. At Google, she has helped develop Google Maps and has recently built tools to help people respond to natural disasters.
"Their first challenge is to have the technological infrastructure in place for Clinton's pending campaign launch, expected in coming days, to immediately connect with her supporters, capture information about them and raise money from them," reported The Washington Post.
