MEET YOUR NEW
PUBLIC AFFAIRS TEAM
With experience winning political campaigns, winning on key public issues, and communicating stories, our team has experience not just advising on how to win but implementing the tactics that move the dial.
OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM
Chris Collier is a veteran of California politics. In 2008, he founded Rincon Strategies, focused on public affairs, political campaigns, and data related to local governments in the Golden State. Over the last 13+ years, Chris and the Rincon team have successfully won elections in almost every major media market in California. In the public affairs realm, Collier has built a reputation of solving complex public problems in energy, waste, transportation, water and land use for key corporate clients.
At Rincon, Bryan has worked on nearly a hundred campaigns, ending many with a win. He has built an expertise in digital advertising that has resulted in millions of impressions for Rincon’s clients, while maximizing budgets. He prides himself on recommending a right sized spend for a campaign, rather than overspending and overcharging.
Matt Guthrie has been a fixture in Southern California policy, advocacy and politics for close to two decades. His experience includes a variety of high profile campaigns, government relations and advocacy for business and agriculture, and senior staff for several elected officials at the county and state levels. Having worked in both the public and private sectors, Matt has built many strong relationships throughout the central and south coast. He has a reputation as a thoughtful and effective navigator of complex issues and policy considerations.
TAKING OWNERSHIP IS OUR PRIORITY
In today's world far too many people's first instinct is to pass the buck. We pride ourselves on taking ownership of our work. To us, ownership means being accountable for our actions, deadlines, and outcomes, communicating often to stakeholders, our clients, and internally so nothing gets dropped, and being empowered to do the job with the right tools and information.
