With the hiring of a former White House staffer and other new employees this spring, Colorado lobbying firm Sewald Hanfling more than doubled the size of its team and added public relations work to its offerings. The firm hired Gordon Bronson, who’s worked on several Democratic campaigns and spent a year working on presidential appointments for the Obama administration, to be its director of strategic communications. The Denver-based firm, which was founded in 2012 and represents clients such as Walmart, Deloitte, Adams State University and marijuana dispensary Medicine Man, also added three other staffers, bringing its staff to seven employees.
