DemBiz Welcomes Expedition Strategies's Pete Brodnitz
Pete Brodnitz is the founder of Expedition Strategies, a strategic public opinion research consultancy based in Arlington, VA. He brings more than twenty years of strategic research experience to his clients, which includes thirteen presidents and prime ministers on four continents, domestic political leaders at all levels, Fortune 500 companies, and leading advocacy and nonprofit institutions.
In the United States, his clients include five sitting U.S. Senators (Kaine of Virginia, Coons of Delaware, Hirono of Hawaii and Merkley and Wyden of Oregon), one of the two Democratic women serving as Governor (Raimondo of RI), as well as Members of Congress, legislators, and local officials.
In 2007, the American Association of Political Consultants named Pete “Pollster of the Year”- the top honor in the political polling profession. The award honored Pete for his work on back-to-back victories in Virginia with Governor Kaine in 2005 and Senator Webb in 2006 using a suburban strategy that has been key to subsequent Democratic victories. In 2013 he was additionally awarded a Gold Pollie Award for innovative research techniques he developed during the 2012 elections.
Pete received an undergraduate degree in government from Clark University and a master’s degree in communications from the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. He is a regular lecturer on the application of behavioral economics theory to crafting effective communications campaigns at both Annenberg and George Washington University. He is a member of the American Association of Political Consultants and the International Association of Political Consultants.
