Spry Strategies President, Ryan Burrell entered the political polling world working alongside his father, Don Burrell, and his Republican consulting firm Washington Political Group. His career started in 2006 with state senate and congressional races in Louisiana and a Supreme Court race in Kentucky.
Ryan fell in love with the intense strategy and competitiveness of Republican primaries with the ultimate goal of beating Democrats in general elections. As Vice President of Washington Political Group and Burrell and Co., Ryan served as general consultant for House &Senate Caucuses, Congressional elections, Presidential Elections and conservative groups such as Freedom Works and Americans for Prosperity. Ryan’s reputation as a strategist and conservative pollster grew along with his hunger for innovative technology and lightning-fast hybrid-method research. This fueled his journey into a partnership building the world’s first multi-mode survey platform, Wick.
In January of 2018, Ryan sat down at a Panera Bread and googled “the 20 best adjectives never used for business names”. As he scrolled down, each adjective and its definition, the word “spry” stood out from the rest. Spry is defined as nimble, agile, and lightning fast. Spry embodied the precise reason that Ryan’s extensive client base enlisted his services for more than a decade. Spry Strategies was born, branded and live, 72 hours later.
Spry Strategies infrastructure has grown with a talented supporting cast. Megan Burton, Tara Gilbreath & Mackenzie Fleming brought an array of talents to the Spry family. From 2018 to 2022 Spry Strategies executed over 300 political polls, market research projects, online surveys in 32 different states. Spry Strategies’ clients in the political sector were served with pinpoint accurate surveys, in-depth analysis and an astounding rate of 95.7% within the error of margin and 94.5% predicting the outcomes of crucial races of primary and general elections.
Ryan serves the Knoxville community through Cokesbury United Methodist Church, Susannah’s House, and other charitable organizations to give back for the grace that God has given to him. Ryan is happily married to Jessica Dooley, has a beautiful daughter Mackenzie, a grandson Knox, a host of amazing friends and a wonderful family!
