David Tarrant

Vice President, Strategic Communications

Look Inside

When someone needs to distill what they need down to a clear, simple idea, they need David. Before joining us, his strong strategic chops and campaign skills were put to use in a prime minister’s office, two premiers’ offices, and a major bank. He’s written election platforms and keynote speeches. He’s handled branding for corporations and governments. He’s managed cross-border communications for both Canadian and American audiences. And he’s worked detailed files, too. Everything from a provincial budget to anti-money laundering initiatives.

Throughout, he’s made messages clearer. Campaigns more focused. And helped issues become more relevant to more people. When companies or institutions face complicated communications questions, there’s few better than David to help them win.
