Dr. Harry G. Broadman on "Where is the Growth in the Global Economy?"

Dr. Harry G. Broadman on "Where is the Growth in the Global Economy?"

Harry G. Broadman is a globally renowned international finance executive, investor, trade negotiator, and authority on business growth, risk-mitigation, corruption, corporate governance, and innovation.  An early serial entrepreneur, he's reinvented himself more than a handful of times—not only in an interdisciplinary fashion but also across greatly differentiated senior roles in the private sector, interspersed with stints as a high-level policy maker and regulator.  

He emerged as a genuine thought-leader on the unforeseen dynamics that have changed the underlying structure and character of world markets long before the term "globalization" was commonplace.  These insights shaped his career focus on strategies that propel firms' competitiveness, especially in emerging markets, the parts of the world toward which he has always had a strong predisposition. He has worked on the ground in more than 75 such countries across 5 continents, especially throughout China, India and the rest of Asia; most of Latin America; almost every Former Soviet Union state; across all Eastern and Central Europe, the Balkans and Turkey; much of Africa; and parts of the Middle East.

A strategic advisor to C-suites and boards, Broadman has counseled companies and investment institutions as diverse as GE, IBM, Coca-Cola, Canon, Exxon-Mobil, Valmet, Pepsi, Abraaj, Corning, Heineken, Merck, Walmart, Deere, the Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board, Intel, ICANN, SunEdison, Illinois Tool Works, Westinghouse, Siemens, Standard Chartered, Microsoft, Manitowoc, PPG, Tyco, Caterpillar, Dow, McCormick, CEMEX, and Avon.

As a speaker, Harry brings to audiences a unique combination of fundamentally insightful and pragmatic views about how commercial, financial and policy changes that drive international markets, will alter enterprises' opportunity-risk tradeoffs in ways few ever could have predicted.  Rather than using a 'rear-view mirror' approach, he provides a prospective prism to frame critical business decision-making challenges. Moreover, he exposes the ways markets intrinsically tend to operate in 'non-linear' patterns. Aside from leaving audiences with concrete, operational takeaways, his speeches are entertaining and infused with his infectious sense of humor.

He’s been interviewed numerous times on television and radio and been widely quoted in the electronic/print media, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, BBC, CNN, NPR, CNBC, CCTV, Fortune, CBC, The People’s Daily, Time, Kommersant, Australia Broadcasting Corporation, Business Africa, El Pais, Le Monde, Nihon Keizai Shinbun, and The Washington Post.   

At present, Broadman is CEO and Managing Partner of Proa Global Partners LLC, a transaction advisory firm that assists corporations, banks, private equity firms, pensions and institutional investors, sovereign wealth funds and family offices to structure the design and execution of deals throughout emerging markets.  Concurrently, he is on the Johns Hopkins University Faculty; a monthly columnist for Forbes, Newsweek-International and Gulf News; and engaged by the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) as a Master Workshop Faculty Member.

He serves or has recently served on the Boards of Directors or Advisors of ArmorText, a cybersecurity end-to-end enterprise-wide communication services provider; Strategic Ratings, a UK-based credit ratings agency; PartnersGlobal, an international alternative dispute resolution (ADR) entity operating in 22 countries; The Lake Tanganyika Floating Health Clinic, a healthcare and telecom services provider across 4 African countries; The Global Business School NetworkThe Russian-American Chamber of Commerce; and The Corporate Council on Africa.

In 2015, Broadman stepped down PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), where he founded and led PwC's Global Business Growth Management Consulting Practice and also served as PwC's Chief Economist.  Before joining PwC, he was Managing Director and a member of the Investment Committee at Albright Capital Management, an international private equity and alternative strategy investment fund chaired by Madeleine Albright. He was also Managing Director of The Albright Group (now Albright Stonebridge), a business diplomacy consultancy.

Prior to that, Harry was a senior official at the World Bank, where he oversaw the Bank's largest sovereign finance operations and enterprise restructuring investments in China; Russia and the Former Soviet Union states; and the Balkans. He also served as Economic Advisor for the entire Africa Region.

Earlier, Broadman worked in the White House as Chief of Staff of the President's Council of Economic Advisers during the first Gulf War and the Savings and Loan Crisis.  He was then appointed as the United States Assistant Trade Representative. In this position, he led the U.S. negotiations on international trade and investment across all services industries as part of the establishment of both NAFTA and the WTO. He also managed all negotiations of U.S. Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs) with other sovereigns. He was a Board Member of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) and served on the White House Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS), which assesses national security impacts of inbound investment. Broadman came to the Executive Branch after serving as a Senior Professional Staff Member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs, then chaired by John Glenn, during which time Harry was a core drafter of the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act.

Prior to his government service, Harry was on the Harvard University faculty; staff member at the RAND Corporation; Assistant Director, Center for Energy Policy at Resources for the Future, Inc.; and fellow at the Brookings Institution.

He has authored several books and numerous professional articles published in a wide array of peer-reviewed finance, economics, law, and foreign policy journals. His most recent books are Africa's Silk Road: China and India's New Economic Frontier;  From Disintegration to Reintegration: Russia and the Former Soviet Union in the Global Economy; and The State As Shareholder: China's Management of Enterprise Assets.

Broadman is a lifetime member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a member of The Bretton Woods Committee.  He received an A.B. in economics and history, magna cum laude, from Brown University, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and an A.M. and Ph.D. in economics from the University of Michigan.
