Eric Pelletier joined Prospectus in April 2011, adding his extensive public affairs experience and contacts within New Brunswick.
From 2005 to 2011, Eric was responsible for investment attraction and community relations with Enterprise Greater Moncton, the lead economic development agency in southeastern New Brunswick. Eric was the primary contact for business seeking to locate their operations in the region, as well as a main representative of the organization at the national and international level. In addition to developing and executing marketing and promotion initiatives, he oversaw the group’s financing projects—finding unique ways to fund its operations via public and private partnerships. His efforts significantly boosted investment and entrepreneurship in the region.
Previous to this role, Eric was the Executive Assistant to the Minister of Business New Brunswick as well as Minister of Tourism and Parks and Family and Community Services in the New Brunswick provincial government. Managing the day-to-day operations in a busy Minister’s office, he organized strategic activities with key stakeholders. It was during this tenure—from 2001 to 2004—that Eric began to build his comprehensive network of key community and government contacts across the province.
A natural entrepreneur, Eric has run several successful small businesses. This first-hand experience, along with his direct experience working in the public service, allows him to understand the needs of his clients in creating appropriate government relations strategies.
In addition to his professional pursuits, Eric has held many volunteer positions within the community. He is a founding member of the Greater Moncton Immigration Board, a key organizer of the annual Greater Moncton Volunteer Breakfast, and has served on a number of committees with the Canadian Franchise Association and the Canadian Board of the International Council of Shopping Centres.
