Co-founded in 2014 by Michael Ramlet (CEO), Alex Dulin (CTO) and Dropp (formerly Chief Research Officer), Morning Consult surveys tens of thousands of respondents across the globe every day to assess what people think in real time, and determine how their decisions impact business, politics and the economy. Since helping launch Morning Consult, Dropp has led the firm's Research division, overseeing research relationships with companies, media organizations and industry trade associations. Prior to this he served as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Government at Dartmouth College; and was a Researcher in the Stanford Spatial Social Science Lab; a Research Assistant for the Harvard Election Data Archive; and he worked in the Washington Post's polling division prior to graduate school.

Cartwright has been with the firm for five years - initially as Director of Communications, and more recently as VP of Content, Marketing & Communications. He previously held senior comms roles at the National Journal and Atlantic Media. Sinclair also joined five years ago, initially as Polling Director, before moving up to the position of VP - Client Services in 2018.
