Vic Gresham, Conquest’s founding partner, planned and managed voter registration and turnout programs during President Reagan’s reelection effort in 1984. Under his management of these programs, more than 50,000 new voters were registered and more than 600,000 Virginians were contacted for the purposes of determining their preference in the presidential election.

Soon after the presidential campaign, Vic was named Vice President of Bryant Seaman Voter Communications. At Bryant Seaman, he directed numerous identification, turnout and voter advocacy projects along the Atlantic Seaboard, including a U.S. Senate race in North Carolina and several elections for the U.S. House of Representatives.

In 1989, Vic opened his own voter contact firm. Utilizing bar-code technology, Vic developed the first rapid data entry system for information gathered via voter identification calls. Vic’s ability to put usable data into the hands of campaigns less than 24 hours after the data was collected, brought his firm to the attention of the National Republican Congressional Committee’s political division. He was soon contracted to handle voter identification and turnout for four special Congressional elections soon after his company opened its doors. His reputation for quality and integrity spread rapidly and, in 1990, 19 congressional races in 13 states from Connecticut to Texas used his firm’s services.
