Henry Sanders to Join Hamilton Consulting Group

The Hamilton Consulting Group today

announced that Henry Sanders Jr. will join the firm to focus on its new

bioscience and technology services partnership. The new venture, a partnership

with nationally-recognized GSP Consulting called hamilton.gsp, provides a range

of services that will maximize public-sector funding opportunities, craft and

advocate for technology-related public policy and develop groundbreaking

economic development efforts. Mr. Sanders also will provide legislative advocacy

services to the firm’s existing clients.

Mr. Sanders is a life-long resident of Madison’s north side who brings a

strong record of professional and civic accomplishment to his new role at the

Hamilton Consulting Group. After graduating from Madison East High School

and the UW-Whitewater, he worked for the City of Madison and served as

outreach coordinator on labor, education and environmental issues for U.S. Rep.

Tammy Baldwin. He subsequently worked on strengthening economic

development activities in Dane and Rock Counties for the Wisconsin Housing

and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA).

Mr. Sanders was the founder and president of the Madison Area Growth

Network, or MAGNET, which works to attract and retain skilled young people in

the Madison area. He served as vice president of the Greater Madison Chamber

of Commerce, where he built that organization’s public policy department and

started its Small Business Advisory Council.

“Henry is a smart, talented professional who earned the respect of the

business community during his time with the chamber,” said Jennifer Alexander,

president of the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce. “Henry is an excellent

addition to the Hamilton Consulting team. We expect that he will continue to

make a significant contribution to the dialogue about economic development and

other issues that will shape the growth of the bioscience industry in Madison and

all of Wisconsin.”

Mr. Sanders has served on the board of directors of the Urban League of

Greater Madison. He received the Hometown Heroes Award for his service at the

Vera Court Community Center.

“Henry is passionate about entrepreneurship and has a wealth of personal

and professional relationships to leverage in assisting start-up companies,” said

Cory Nettles, a Milwaukee attorney and former state secretary of commerce.

“Henry’s broad range of experience uniquely qualifies him for this position.

Hamilton Consulting and its new venture, hamilton.gsp, are very fortunate to

have Henry on the team.”

The Hamilton Consulting Group is one of Wisconsin’s largest and most

experienced lobbying firms. It represents more than 30 organizations, many of

which are in the technology, manufacturing and economic development sectors.

“We are very pleased to welcome Henry to Hamilton Consulting,” said Jim

Hough, senior partner of the Hamilton Consulting Group. “Henry’s experience

gives him a unique understanding of precisely the kind of emerging businesses

that we will assist through our new hamilton.gsp partnership. His combination

of economic development and public policy know-how will enable us to serve

both new and existing clients even better than before.”

“I am delighted to be joining Hamilton Consulting at this exciting time in

the firm’s development,” Mr. Sanders said. “There is an outstanding opportunity

to drive the continued growth of the bioscience, technology and manufacturing

sectors not only in Madison and Milwaukee, but across Wisconsin. I am looking

forward to contributing significantly to hamilton.gsp’s efforts to support these

important, emerging and valuable industries in Wisconsin.”
