Impact Research is proud to announce that Brian Stryker is now the firm’s managing partner, in recognition of his critical contributions to the company’s operations and his dedication to the clients he serves.

Brian Stryker has had an esteemed polling career where he’s been instrumental in key Democratic wins across the country, from flipping Republican seats to navigating competitive primaries. He has also been a leader in modernizing the firm’s survey methodology and helping the firm continue to collect accurate data in a difficult research environment.

“We couldn’t be happier to see Brian in the managing partner position. Both with his clients and within the firm, Brian plays a vital role in helping Impact be a leader in our industry,” says Impact Research founder John Anzalone. “Brian is truly one of the best in the business, performing at the highest levels and always willing to mentor and train people within the firm as well as share his insights to a wider Democratic community,” added Molly Murphy, Impact Research’s president.

All of Brian’s work is impressive, but it is worth noting some of his more recent wins, including his work in Michigan with Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Haley Stevens; in Illinois, with freshman congresswoman Nikki Budzinski and enshrining collective bargaining in the state constitution; and in Ohio with Marcy Kaptur.

Brian also polls for organizations and nonprofits, such as Third Way, Center Forward, VoteVets, the ACLU, AFL-CIO, and Planned Parenthood. Beyond the borders of the United States, Brian is working in countries like Nigeria to ensure that the will of the people is heard and that the global future will be brighter.

Since joining the team in 2010, Brian has been crucial in growing our firm through not only his efforts to win races but also serving as a national voice in messaging about how Democrats can improve among working-class voters, appearing on networks such as NBC, CNN, and MSNBC. In addition, Brian’s work has been published in two op-eds in the New York Times.
