Kristi Lowe is a Vice President at Greenberg Quinlan Rosner providing strategic advice and polling to international campaigns, global leaders and governments, issue advocacy organizations, and corporate clients. She specializes in developing research programs to target hard-to-reach undecided voters and win difficult elections. Lowe has conducted hundreds of focus groups and surveys in more than 15 countries and has advised a broad range of political candidates and elected officials at all levels. Some of her current and past clients come from the Bahamas, Croatia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, United Kingdom, and the United States.
Most recently, she led the firm’s work on behalf of Perry Christie and the Progressive Liberal Party in the Bahamas; in May 2012, the PLP won an historic landslide victory that returned Mr. Christie to the Prime Minister’s office. Lowe also helped lead the firm’s work on behalf of Ireland’s Fine Gael party; Fine Gael’s February 2011 victory elevated its leader, Enda Kenny, to the office of Taoiseach (Prime Minister).
Lowe also has extensive experience on national security related research working with organizations such as Third Way, Open Society Institute, and the Nuclear Threat Initiative.
In addition to polling and consulting, Lowe is an experienced focus group moderator, leading discussion groups around the United States for political, issue-based, and corporate clients.
During the 2008 cycle, Lowe focused on the U.S. presidential race and worked closely with Democracy Corps, a nonprofit organization providing opinion research and strategic advice to aid progressive organizations. She also led the qualitative research program for an independent expenditure campaign working to bring about progressive change.
Prior to joining Greenberg Quinlan Rosner, Lowe interned at the Central Intelligence Agency and spent a year studying at the Université de Paul Valéry in Montpellier, France. She received her Bachelor's degree in International Relations and French from the College of William and Mary.
