Sandstone Group welcomes former House Speaker Geoff Regan to its growing team
Ottawa — Sandstone Group is jazzed to welcome former House of Commons Speaker Geoff Regan to Canada’s fastest-growing executive advisory firm. He has accepted the position of Senior Advisor.
Geoff is a public service maven and brings serious policy and political chops to Sandstone. His career as a Member of Parliament for Halifax West stretched over more than 24 years. During this time, he not only supervised the workings of the House of Commons, with its $600-million annual budget, but also served as Minister of Fisheries and Oceans in the government of Prime Minister Paul Martin. In 2020 and 2021, he chaired the Commons Special Committee on Canada-China relations.
“Geoff is a catch,” said Kevin Bosch, co-founder and managing partner at Sandstone Group. “There is no question that our firm and our clients will benefit from his deep experience both in Ottawa and Atlantic Canada.”
“This appointment comes at a time of significant momentum for our firm,” said Naresh Raghubeer, co-founder and managing partner at Sandstone Group. “We are expanding into areas like crisis communications, and Geoff’s wealth of public-private expertise will give our clients a privileged line of sight into government decision-making and exercise of power.”
Geoff is also a lawyer. Before being elected to Parliament, he practiced real estate law in Bedford and Halifax.
