Bryce “Larry” Harlow
Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation, Trustee

June 2, 2014 through Present

Bryce “Larry” Harlow’s career has been distinguished by his extraordinary capacity to rise to the top of organizations in both public and private sectors. He has built a reputation for tireless, honest and sophisticated advocacy in working with the U.S. Congress and Administrations of both political parties.

His government service spans over 15 years, serving three administrations in virtually every type of federal agency. In President George H.W. Bush’s Administration, he was Deputy Under Secretary of the Treasury and later, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Legislative Affairs. Larry was twice appointed by President Reagan to his legislative staff beginning in the Environmental Protection Agency as Director of the Office of Legislation and later, in a similar role, for the Federal Trade Commission. He served as Special Assistant to the President for Legislative Affairs during the President’s second term.

He has handled the confirmation process of many dozens of Presidential nominees and has been involved in Congressional consideration of hundreds of legislative measures. He has had a senior planning and management role at the last five Republican National Conventions, directing the proceedings of each session of the Conventions in 2004, 2008 and 2012. Larry left government in 1991 to join one of Washington’s premier government relations firms, Timmons and Company. He was President and Chief Executive Officer of Timmons from 2000 to 2009 and, following its merger, was Vice Chairman of the Prime Policy Group in 2010. He opened Harlow Government Relations LLC in 2011, building on a career of constructive relationships across many industries and agencies of government.
