Highest-Ranking of MBI-GluckShaw's New Leadership

Openings for glad-handing on long days of State House lingering – that’s what lobbyists live for. And, after lifetimes of rinsing and repeating that and more, Paul Bontempo and Paul Matacera of MBI-GluckShaw had the sort of history of face-to-face interactions with policymakers that political powerbrokers need. Their combined eight decades-deep pool of experience helped lift MBI-GluckShaw to a spot among the state’s Top 3 lobbying outfits.
