A firm believer in research-based and synergistic communications, Bryan has excelled with commercial, public and political clients by providing a full-services communications agency. His creative public relations and advertising campaigns have won three decades worth of national and local awards. As a pollster, his methodologies for improving opinion research accuracy have revolutionized the Texas public opinion telephone survey industry. In public affairs, he has helped write and pass landmark state legislation from patient rights to tax appraisal to telecommunications reforms; and his numerous successes on the electoral battlefield have earned him the ranking of #1 Political Consultant in Texas by Austin-based Capitol Inside.
Bryan and his wife Kim were in the same kindergarten class but they didn’t date until she completed Graduate School. Today, they are the proud parents of two adult sons (one a high school mathematics teacher/coach in Nashville and the other currently working at The Eppstein Group while completing his college degree). Bryan earned a double major in Liberal Arts from Rice University and was a 2-year varsity cheerleader (1970s Southwest Conference days). His community service includes longstanding support for disadvantaged youth, the homeless, and local food banks. Bryan has also taught as an Adjunct Instructor of Public Relations at TCU; and as an Eagle Scout, he has proudly given back to Scouting as an instructor at the local Boy Scouts Merit Badge College.
“Results, not rhetoric” is Bryan’s favorite ad line.
