We’re pleased to announce that Kevin Akins has been named partner, joining partners John Anzalone, Matt Hogan, Jeff Liszt, Zac McCrary, Molly Murphy and Brian Stryker.

Kevin Akins has nearly fifteen years of experience working in opinion research and has been a major contributor to ALG’s growth in the South and Heartland in the seven years since joining the firm. He is one of the country’s go-to southern pollsters, with a strong background in Florida– a state that is notoriously challenging to survey. Some of Kevin’s notable clients include: Rep. Ami Bera (CA-07), Rep. Charlie Crist (FL-13), Rep. Peter DeFazio (OR-04), Rep. Deborah Ross (NC-02), as well as organized labor groups, progressive causes and ballot measures, and state legislators across the country.

“We are going to do big things in this country over the next several years. I am excited to be at a firm with its finger on the pulse of the nation, working at the highest of levels of government and business, and covering all corners of the map,” added Akins. “It is an honor to be named partner and do this for a living.”
