Patrick Faust is the Director of Digital Strategies with Greenberg Quinlan Rosner. Faust has established himself as a campaign veteran in local and nationwide elections in the United States, South America, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. In Faust’s seven years at GQR, he has built off his background in fieldwork to successfully plan and execute data-driven digital frameworks for vastly different campaigns around the world. He has been on the battlegrounds of some of the most important international races in the past decade - including leading digital efforts in Venezuela that sought to oust the late President Hugo Chavez. He has also worked in Albania, Bahamas, Ecuador, Estonia, Indonesia, Thailand, Kosovo, Moldova, Venezuela, Georgia, and Serbia, as well as work for a variety of major national corporations and organizations.
When Faust first came to GQR he led the firm’s training program to help international vendors working in hostile public opinion research atmospheres reach their targeted sample. This included work in Egypt, West Bank, Gaza, Jordan, Moldova, and Albania.
Today, Faust and GQR Digital focus on using research to fine-tune an online strategy uniquely fit for a candidate or corporation’s specific needs. GQR Digital focuses on delivering winning online strategies and services, ranging from social media engagement with voters and e-government optimization to website development and online advertising. Faust continues to break barriers in reaching voters in closed political environments through smart online outreach. In particular, Faust’s newly introduced social canvassing strategy has helped international political campaigns close in on their opponents and communicate a message tailored to their respective target audiences.
Faust graduated from American University, where he earned a degree in political science.
