Bruce Todd Public Affairs (BTPA) was established in 1997, after Bruce Todd served his second term as Mayor of Austin. Bruce Todd recognized the need for the private sector to have access to expertise in the local government arena, not just in Central Texas, but nationwide.
BTPA has been a proud and successful representative of clients from both the public and private sector. The firm has represented a broad range of clients including developers, engineers, transportation firms, health care providers, law firms, and individuals.
BTPA offers a full suite of services to its clients including: analysis of municipal, transit, and county governing actions, lobbying, development of public/private joint use agreements, contract negotiations and facilitation, analysis of business and political intelligence, strategic advising, and coordination of multi-faceted projects.
The firm specializes in understanding a client’s needs with respect to governmental entities and developing strategies for ensuring those needs are met. With its vast experience and successes in different industries, the firm brings a broad-based knowledge of how to forge strong relationships between the public and private sectors. The firm’s President, Bruce Todd, is highly regarded for his ability to perceive obstacles before they arise, and navigate the complexities of local governments successfully. Todd is able to understand the challenges faced by government officials and create win-win solutions for his clients and the governments they seek to engage.
The success BTPA has had on behalf of clients has allowed it to develop years’ long relationships with those clients. BTPA not only assists clients in obtaining their goals, but seeks out opportunities in their best interests. As an example, BTPA has initiated contact with mayors in several major U.S. cities on behalf of a national law firm. Those contacts have resulted in multi-million dollar contracts and have assisted what was once a small, Texas-based firm become a national leader in the collections industry.
Bruce Todd maintains the highest ethical standards and has an unblemished record both as an elected official and private citizen.
