Mike McDonald

Senior Research Associate (Vancouver)

Mike has built his career at the crossroads of public opinion research, communications, public affairs, and strategy. He led the BC Liberal Party’s 2013 election campaign, hailed as “stunning” and a “win for the ages” by Canadian news outlets and served as Chief of Staff to Premier Christy Clark.

He’s led major projects as a researcher and he’s commissioned major projects as a client. He adds a strong understanding of the underlying political, socio-cultural, and demographic context that is critical to informing strategy.

Mike’s work with Pollara complements his ongoing role as Senior Associate at Kirk & Co., a leader in communications, public consultation and engagement.
