The Democratic survey firm, which also has offices in Washington, London and Buenos Aires, has opened a new corporate headquarters in New York City. Anna Greenberg, a senior vice president who last year worked on the election victory of Mayor Bill de Blasio, will be based out of the office.

“We were honored to be part of Mayor de Blasio’s historic victory and to be part of a groundbreaking campaign,” Greenberg stated. “Establishing a New York office will allow us to support our strong and increasing base of clients in the region, and we are proud to expand our network to this great city.”

The office is led by Graeme Trayner, who was appointed March 1 as GQR's vice president handling corporate consulting practice worldwide. 

“I am delighted to return to the firm where I started my career," stated Trayner, who previously worked as an intern at the firm. "As communications shifts from relying on gut instinct to a data-driven approach, insights into how campaigns build and mobilize support are becoming hugely relevant to business.”

Jeremy Rosner, GQP's executive vice president, added: “We are thrilled Graeme is joining to head up our New York office and lead our growing corporate practice."
