Brian C. Tringali is a partner with The Tarrance Group, one of the most respected and successful Republican survey research and strategy firms in America today.
Earlier this year, Tringali was named – together with VP B.J. Martino – the “Top Republican Strategist” for his work with Governor Scott Walker during his successful 2012 recall election in Wisconsin which captured national attention. That honor came from the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC).
Back in 1991, Tringali was named a “Rising Star” by Campaign & Elections magazine. During the historic 1994 elections when Republicans took over Congress for the first time in 40 years, Tringali was the pollster for the Republican Contract With America. He has been the pollster for U.S. House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio since his first election to Congress.
Tringali has also been involved in conducting research for corporations, particularly those involved in short-term, crisis management situations. He has worked successfully with the mining, timber, tobacco, gaming, drug and telecommunications industries, as well as sports and racing teams. His corporate clients rely on him primarily for message testing, corporate reputation management and stakeholder strategies. He has also done a considerable amount of work for companies facing large lawsuits.
Tringali has been an adjunct professor for George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management (GSPM). Tringali has taught quantitative and qualitative methods to those getting advanced degrees in politics for more than 20 years. He continues to teach in a number of regional leadership programs, remains a guest lecturer in programs around the country and is a published author – including contributions to political textbooks.
Prior to joining The Tarrance Group in 1988, Tringali was the Director of the Research Division at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC). He has worked in numerous U.S. Senate and House races, as well as for the House Science and Technology Committee and a Member of Congress.
Tringali and his wife reside in the Mount Vernon area of Virginia. They have two children and a lightly trained French bulldog.
