Bryce Harlow, a 13-year veteran of CBS Corp, will join Washington's Subject Matter on July 13.
At CBS, he led federal advocacy on issues of copyright, video privacy, tax policy and Internet-related regulations.
Previously, Harlow was director of government relations at the National Assn. of Broadcasters and staffer at the Federal Trade Commission. He has close ties to the Republican party, working for the last five GOP Conventions.
Steve Elmendorf, partner and co-founder, said Harlow "has been shaping the formation and execution of legislative policy for decades" and is a key addition to Subject Matter's government relations team.
