GSG Founding Partner and CEO Jon Silvan and Founding Partner and President Jefrey Pollock are named one of City and State’s Albany Power 100. This ranking of the Albany elite puts a spotlight on state lawmakers, gubernatorial appointees, business executives, labor leaders, advisers, advocates and activists who are vying to shape New York’s future.
Governors come and governors go, but one constant in Albany is Global Strategy Group. GSG has a long history of advising many of New York’s most prominent Democratic politicians, from former Govs. Eliot Spitzer to David Paterson to Andrew Cuomo to, most recently, Gov. Kathy Hochul. Among Hochul’s closest advisers is pollster Jefrey Pollock, who co-founded the firm in 1995 along with CEO Jon Silvan and Jeffrey Plaut. The firm today has a national reach, providing polling, research and communications services to Democratic candidates and incumbents across the country.
