Anthony Pileggi manages our client’s day-to-day general consulting needs. As a strategic consultant to your campaign, we provide hands-on planning and implementation at all stages to ensure the team is working in a seamless and effective way. IMGE Advisors takes a hands-on, data-driven approach to general consulting; an approach that helps inform crucial decisions that will affect Election Day.
In IMGE Advisors’ first year, Anthony oversaw two top-10 Congressional races- winning both of them. Anthony served as general consultant for Claudia Tenney’s (NY-22) 109-vote victory as well as Andrew Garbarino’s (NY-02) victory in the long-held Peter King seat on Long Island. In both races, Anthony oversaw every facet including budgeting, media, polling and mail strategies, ground game development, etc. One a challenger, the other an open seat, both candidates were outspent by more than 3-1 vs. their Democrat opponents. It took a unique and tailored approach in each district to get both candidates across the finish line on Election Day.
