Las Vegas, NV – After more than a decade working in political and public affairs research, strategic communications, and campaign strategy, Ryan McInerney is joining Nesbitt & Parrinello as a partner based in our Las Vegas office.

Since 2006, Ryan has worked on winning Democratic campaigns from City Council to presidential. In 2016, Ryan served as Research Director and Senior Political Advisor for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s (DCCC) $80 million independent expenditure program. He managed a staff of 15 and played a leading role in directing paid media communications strategy in 47 U.S. House races across 21 states.

Ryan also served as the DCCC’s West Regional Research Director, and led a rapid response research team on President Obama’s Re-Election campaign.

Ryan has complemented his extensive political research experience with stints as a general consultant, a public affairs professional, and a policy analyst. In 2018, Ryan served as Vice President for a California-based general consulting firm where he helped manage local and statewide candidate and IE campaigns and ran a federal super PAC. He’s also worked for a Los Angeles-based public affairs firm and served as Legislative Director for the nonpartisan California Institute for Federal Policy Research in Washington, D.C.

“Ryan’s experience and expertise in research, communications, and strategy gives him a unique political perspective that will help our clients better understand their environment and craft the strategy they need to win,” said CEO Allen Nesbitt. “I’ve worked with Ryan for 10 years on races nationwide, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have him on our team.”

“I’m excited to help Nesbitt & Parrinello fight for progressive causes as well as continue growing its innovative public affairs and competitive intelligence practices,” said McInerney. “I’ve never seen a firm so driven to deliver a high quality and cost-effective product for its clients. Allen and Cristina are truly on the cutting edge of political and corporate research.”
