About Harry Broadman
Harry Broadman is an expert practitioner in international finance, investment and trade, business growth, risk-mitigation, innovation strategy, and corporate governance. One of the earliest serial entrepreneurs, he’s re-invented himself more than a handful of times not only in an interdisciplinary fashion, but also across greatly differentiated senior roles in the private sector, interspersed with stints as a high-level policy maker. Broadman has emerged as a genuine 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 his career focus on structuring cross-border transactions, especially in high-growth emerging markets, the parts of the world toward which Harry has always had a strong predisposition. Illustrative of this, he’s worked on-the-ground with businesses large and small in more than 75 such countries across 5 continents. With an innate sense of how business functions, Harry’s professional journey has been propelled by an intense personal inquisitiveness about the elements that shape how successful firms grow rapidly, excel at remaining more competitive than rivals, reduce exposure to risks, and constantly innovate.
Harry’s accomplishments have been marked by successively creative approaches to identifying and seizing ‘first mover’ market advantage; structuring robust transactions for new product market entry, geographic expansion and agile supply chains; executing novel, multidimensional risk-mitigation strategies; incorporating productivity-enhancing changes in technology into operations; and enterprise restructuring to achieve superior management of net assets to enhance investment returns.
He is a seasoned decision-maker, especially in fast paced, high pressured, risky business and policy environments, and a tactful, creative negotiator of multi-party investment and trade transactions, particularly with foreign enterprises and governments. He has been a driving force advising, helping to create or establishing afresh highly successful enterprises positioned at the leading edge of their markets, and the builder and leader of globally dispersed, large, multi-cultural teams of professionals.
Broadman brings to C-suites and boardrooms a unique combination of fundamentally insightful and pragmatic views about how commercial, financial and policy changes that drive international markets impact workers at the factory floor upwards to the executive management team—and the reverse. He has the rare ability to frame the most salient business issues from a prospective rather than simply a ‘rear-view mirror’ vantage point, and do so through a prism that recognizes the ‘non-linearities’ of changes in business environments.
