Berton "Bert" Brown
- Government Affairs Advisor
I’ve always had a sincere interest in politics and how it can be used for the greater good. In working for the Senate, various political parties, state representatives and other government and school programs – I’ve had firsthand experience connecting people and resources to build better communities. I thrive in a creative space where I can construct programs from the ground up and make a powerful impact. And, I’m results driven – fostering relationships that produce the most lucrative outcomes for all parties involved.
A consultant and lobbyist, Bert Brown bridges clients to legislation, ensuring public interest groups, associations, corporations, nonprofits, unions and trade associations have a seat at the law-making table. He has a track record of opening doors the state of Michigan has historically kept shut. The K-12 appropriations space is just one example of where Bert has made strides – creating Section 99 that identifies how vendors can better partner with the state to provide more cost effective resources.
