Partner and Chair, Emerging Markets Practice, Berkeley Research Group LLC

Former Chief of Staff, President’s Council of Economic Advisers

• Author of Three Best-Selling Books on China, Russia and Emerging Markets

Harry G. Broadman is a globally renowned international finance executive, private equity investor, trade negotiator, and authority on business growth, risk-mitigation, antitrust, regulation, corruption, corporate governance and innovation. Re-inventing himself multiple times over the years in an interdisciplinary fashion across greatly differentiated senior roles in the private sector—interspersed with stints as a high-level White House economic official, trade negotiator and Senate committee professional staff member—Harry emerged as an authority on the fundamental drivers and contours of the transformation world markets have undergone—and continue to do so—long before the term “globalization” was ever uttered.

At the vanguard of his generation, 36 years ago Harry Broadman began a career focused on business opportunities and risks in emerging markets. Today, he’s globally known as a venerable practitioner of the design and execution of novel investment strategies in such markets to achieve rapid business growth and rigorous risk-mitigation—strategies that focus on building durable cross-border trade and investment transactions, potent strategic alliances and partnership, agile supply chains, robust corporate governance
protocols, tough compliance and anti-corruption controls, and incentives for sustained innovation.

He emerged as a 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 Broadman’s focus on operational 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 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.

He’s worked on the ground in more than 75 emerging markets across 5 continents, including China, India and the rest of Asia; much of Latin America; in Russia and almost every other Former Soviet Union state; across Eastern & Central Europe; the Balkans; Turkey; most of Africa; and much of the Middle East. Harry has been an advisor to entities as diverse as GE, IBM, Coke, Canon, Exxon-Mobil, Valmet, Abraaj, KIA, Corning, Heineken, Merck, Pepsi, Walmart, Deere, Mars, Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board, Intel, Temasek, Berkshire Hathaway, McCormick, ICANN, SunEdison, ITW, Westinghouse, Siemens, Standard Chartered, Microsoft, Manitowoc, PPG, Tyco, Caterpillar, ADIA, Dow, Future Fund, and Avon.

As a speaker, he brings to audiences a unique combination of fundamentally insightful views and operational lessons about the ways is which market and policy dynamics will impact C-suites, boards, managers and workers as well as suppliers and customers, and how they’ll alter business fortunes.

Harry has the rare ability to frame such effects from a genuinely prospective vantage point rather than conventional rear-view mirror extrapolations, and through a prism incorporating intrinsic non-linearities of market changes. And, all done in a highly entertaining mode, infused with his infectious sense of humor.
