Today, WPA Intelligence, a national leader in survey research, predictive analytics and data science, is pleased to announce the promotion of Conor Maguire to the role of Principal and Managing Director. His years of experience in leading client strategy as well as research and data science teams will continue to serve our clients at WPAi.
In 2017, Maguire joined WPAi after three election cycles in the Republican National Committee’s Data Division. Maguire served the RNC as the Director of External Support, working to directly implement the GOP’s state-of-the-art data program across the country and within major campaigns up and down the ballot. Maguire also served as the data liaison to the Trump for President campaign, facilitating the flow of information and deployment of critical resources, contributing significantly to a banner election year which saw the Republican Party win the White House while maintaining majorities in both chambers of Congress.
In addition to Maguire’s tenure at the national party committee, he has worked on competitive campaigns across the country, lending him the critical experience of on-the-ground campaigning coupled with the implementation of data-driven programs at all levels of politics.
“Conor Maguire has earned the right to be a Principal of our firm, and Managing Director of our DC office. He has quickly become a leader of our team”, said Chris Wilson, WPAi’s CEO. “Our continued commitment to serving our clients with the most sophisticated polling, data analytics and technology solutions, paired with unrivaled strategic guidance, is bolstered by Conor’s work. Conor’s years at WPAi and extensive experience with the RNC provide him with exceptional credentials that will continue to be invaluable for our clients in the political, public affairs, and corporate space.”
Maguire added, “Having worked on critical races up and down the ticket, I know what it takes to win. WPAi brings to the table a unique and succinct approach to traditional polling by incorporating an intelligent use of data. I am eager to continue to deliver unparalleled insights and to lead our clients to victory.”
