Hill & Knowlton welcomes Vivek Prabhu as National Public Affairs & Advocacy Practice Lead

Hill & Knowlton (H&K), Canada’s leading public relations and public affairs firm, is thrilled to welcome Vivek Prabhu as Senior Vice President & National Lead of our Public Affairs & Advocacy practice.  

Vivek is an H&K alumnus who is well-known for strategic planning and ability to navigate complex political landscapes. He possesses a deep understanding of our highly regarded Public Affairs & Advocacy practice and will work with our robust national team to propel its continued growth and innovation. 

“Vivek returns with the political acumen and incredible public affairs expertise we know, but also with seasoned leadership skills and cross-cutting corporate experience,” said Sheila Wisniewski, President & CEO, H&K Canada. “We can't wait to see the results of this powerful combination for H&K and our partners.” 

Vivek has served many campaigns at all levels and worked across governments — from the office of former Prime Minister Stephen Harper — to the BC Liberal government, to digital campaign communications in war rooms for the Alberta UCP, BC Liberals, and Ontario Progressive Conservatives.   

“H&K is a longstanding leader and an established force in Canada’s public affairs landscape,” said Vivek. “It’s a dynamic environment that is constantly evolving and innovating to deliver the best to its clients and team. That’s why joining H&K is both a welcome homecoming and an exciting new step.” 

During his time away, Vivek honed his executive leadership skills leading Corporate Affairs for a health technology company, where he supported the organization in all jurisdictions at the intersection of public affairs, operations, marketing, corporate strategy, and communications in a highly regulated field. 

In his new role, Vivek will lead H&K’s Public Affairs & Advocacy team from coast-to-coast with a focus on growth innovation and provide unparallel service to clients.
