Prospectus Associates today announced that Bruce Hartley, former senior Liberal government advisor, has joined the firm in Ottawa.
“We could not be happier to have him on board. He has been around Parliament Hill for 15 years or more. He is well respected by everyone around the Hill, and I think he will bring a lot to the firm,” said Prospectus co-owner Robert Evershed.
From 1995 to 2003, Bruce served as Executive Assistant to the Prime Minister of Canada. In that position, he acquired a solid mix of professional experience in intergovernmental and international affairs, strategic planning and crisis management, and an expertise in the operations and culture of government.
He is well known for his drive and commitment, and for getting results. The first 7 years of Bruce’s 15 years on “the Hill” were as a Legislative Assistant to the Opposition House Leader and subsequently to the Prime Minister. He has experienced successful election campaigns both in the War Room and on the Leader’s Tour. As Executive Assistant to the Prime Minister, he dealt with foreign Heads of State and Government, Ministers, Premiers, Ambassadors, Members of Parliament, Senators, senior civil servants and business and labour leaders.
“Bruce has established a strong personal reputation in one of the most high-pressured jobs of its kind – I know, I have done it,” stated Prospectus Associates co-owner William Pristanski. “His background enables Bruce to be an effective and successful advocate for our clients in their dealings with all levels of government.”
With a detailed knowledge of government policy and the legislative process, he provides clients with valuable insight on a broad range of issues. Bruce is fluently bilingual in English and French.
