Ashton Arsenault, an alumnus of the Riddell Political Management Program, has been appointed vice president of Crestview Strategy, one of Ottawa’s leading government relations firms.

Arsenault had worked in politics in Prince Edward Island before moving to Ottawa to join the Riddell Program. After graduating with a master’s in political management, he worked first as a political aide to the Minister of National Revenue and then became a consultant with Crestview Strategy, a firm that represents corporations, not-for-profits, and industry associations in their dealings with governments in Canada and around the world. As a vice president with Crestview, Arsenault is now tasked with expanding the firm’s Government Relations Practice and with managing key accounts.

Arsenault believes the Riddell Program was instrumental in his success. He recommends the program to anyone planning to work in politics or government relations: “This unique program is an experience you will not want to miss.”
