John Cipriani

Vice President, Research

John has asked too many questions for as long as he (or any of his friends and family) can remember. So it’s only fitting that he’s made a career out of it.

At GSG, he works with clients to ask the questions that uncover non-obvious and actionable insights. He’s helped devise winning campaigns for companies like NewsCorp, and Verizon, trade associations like The American Bankers Association and America’s Natural Gas Alliance, and foundations like The MacArthur Foundation and The LIVESTRONG Foundation.

Prior to joining GSG, John worked for the Chief Strategy Officer at Microsoft, running the quick-turn polling operation that informed Microsoft’s strategic direction in a period of broad organizational change following Satya Nadella’s appointment as CEO.

He also spent nearly five years as a public opinion researcher and communications strategist building communications campaigns inside and outside the beltway at The Glover Park Group.

John grew up in the small town of Wading River, NY. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from American University in Washington, DC. He currently resides in Washington, DC where he can be found playing soccer or his guitar when he isn’t working.
