B.J. Martino named President and CEO of The Tarrance Group

The Tarrance Group is pleased to announce our board has appointed Partner B.J. Martino the new President and CEO of the company, effective July 1st of this year.

A simple “thank you” does not begin to express our feeling towards Ed Goeas, who will be stepping down from the above positions. He will retain the title of Partner.

Of this change, Ed Goeas says “In 1991, my Partners Dave Sackett, Brian Tringali and I turned The Tarrance Group into one of the premier Republican polling firms in the nation. I am proud of everything we accomplished over the thirty-five years of our strategic partnership, and am excited for what’s next for our firm under the leadership of the next generation.”

Martino has been with The Tarrance Group since 1998. He has been a part of successful campaigns across the country during his time, as well as initiative, legislative and corporate work. He has been a Partner with the firm since 2012.

Martino earned a B.A. in Economics from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. He received a Masters and was Valedictorian of his class from the Graduate School of Political Management (GSPM) at George Washington University, and currently sits on the GSPM’s Board of Advisors.

Professionally, he has been recognized with others as “Republican Strategist of the Year” in 2013, and “Republican Pollster of the Year” in 2022.

Of his new role, Martino says “I could not be more excited to lead The Tarrance Group into the future of political polling and research. My only job will be to continue providing our clients with the same or better level of service as this company has provided for decades.”

The Tarrance Group is one of the most widely respected and successful Republican strategic research and polling firms in the nation. Our total commitment to provide the highest quality strategic advice to our clients has helped elect countless Republican officeholders at all levels of government.
