After serving as the Advisor to Michigan’s Governor for Research and Planning, overseeing a new brand campaign for the state of Michigan, and being extensively involved in both political and policy campaigns, he took his extensive experience in public surveying and policy, and founded the Glengariff Group, Inc. in 1998. He brings more than three decades of expertise in survey and focus group research, issue management, and strategic planning with all levels of government and public sector organizations.
Today, Richard is known for his clear spoken, non-partisan approach to public policy research letting clients know how all sides view a conversation.

Richard Czuba has been involved with two of Michigan’s most notable ballot proposals providing the research that framed 2008’s successful Michigan Stem Cell Ballot Proposal, and the 2014 Personal Property Tax Reform Ballot Proposal. In 2012 when Michigan’s Senate Republican and Senate Democratic caucuses decided to join forces to conduct joint research to better understand voter attitudes towards road and education funding, they turned to Richard Czuba to provide that accurate, non-partisan research.
