Brian Stedge-Stroud

Vice President, Southern California

Brian’s 15-year career has spanned government, public relations, public affairs and campaign consulting. As S360’s Vice President of the Southern California office, his winning record will deliver a wealth of real-world expertise for clients. He even provided crisis communications for an attempted coup and survived to tell the tale.

Brian joined S360 after five years overseeing communications and district operations for Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian in Los Angeles. While working for the California State Assembly, Brian successfully oversaw all outreach and coalition building in support of Assemblymember Nazarian’s legislative and political agenda, an aggressive digital campaign, and successfully pitched over a hundred stories to national and local news media.

Brian cut his teeth in New York, where he managed three shocking victories for new State Senate candidates. Those campaigns flipped the New York State Senate to Democratic control for the first time in over 40 years. He then joined the New York State Senate Majority as Deputy Communications Director. There he developed and implemented multi-media plans utilizing traditional media, social media, grassroots engagement, and mail programs for State Senators in must-win districts.

Following a move to California in the quest for endless summer, Brian joined Davis Public Affairs where he oversaw award-winning, perception-changing campaigns for clients across North America, utilizing paid and earned media, grassroots cultivation, and cutting-edge digital advocacy.

Brian serves as a Social Service Commissioner in the City of Santa Monica and on the Upper Los Angeles Tributary Working Group. After he has helped you win, he can be found playing basketball, hiking, or whitewater rafting.
