David Herle, LL.B.
Long-time strategist and pollster, known simply as Herle to many, loves all things music and sports but nothing fills his heart more than his Border Collie, Ryder (gleefully named after the Saskatchewan Roughriders). His unique laugh pierces most boardroom walls and his stature makes it easy to find him in a crowd. His podcast, The Herle Burly, is one of Canada’s leading public affairs pods and can be found at www.theherleburly.com.
A devoted fan of the Buffalo Bills and Toronto Blue Jays, Alex pines for the return of the Montreal Expos and 70’s Canadian kitsch. He has been solving problems for clients, particularly in the fields of communications and issues management as well as for regulated sectors and businesses, for over fifteen years. He loves puns, cassette tapes, and politics.
