Mindshare Interactive Campaigns is opening an office in Raleigh, and a former executive with the John Dean presidential campaign will run in.

Mindshare, which is based in Washington, said Matt Goss will oversea operations in RTP. Goss was director of Internet communications for the Dean campaign and helped devise a strategy that raised more than $25 million.

“The Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill Triangle is a perfect fit for Mindshare,” said Dan Solomon, chief executive officer of Mindshare. “This is home to talented people who will help us to serve more organizations in North Carolina and the Southeastern United States.”

Mindshare, which was launched in 1997, works with a variety of corporate, association, non-profit and government clients. It also has offices in Austin and Boston.
