TORONTO, Oct. 24, 2012 /CNW/ - Pathway Group announced today that it is expanding its team with the addition of Mr. Allan Rewak, a well-known veteran of Ontario's government relations sector. Mr. Rewak is joining the firm as a partner.
"It gives me great pleasure to welcome Allan back to our team," said Pathway Group partner, Jeff Bangs. "Previously, Mr. Rewak had worked for Pathway Group for close to eight years and developed a steady stream of long term clients. His skill at business development, coupled with his commitment to progressive politics and social issues, will allow for Pathway Group to grow, while delivering enhanced value to our existing clients."
For ten years Mr. Rewak has been an active and visible feature of Queen's Park Politics. From assuming a senior role in the leadership campaign of Timmins James Bay MPP Gilles Bisson, to advocating for a range of community groups - Mr. Rewak has developed deep relationships across party lines based on mutual respect.
Over the course of his career, Mr. Rewak has had the privilege of working on issues that have resulted in over $300 million in direct government investment coupled with numerous policy decisions that have benefitted not only his clients but the people of Ontario. Mr. Rewak is particularly proud of his work on Bill 147, the Holodomor Memorial Day Act, which was the first piece of legislation passed in Ontario with Tripartisan sponsorship and the unanimous consent of the house. Referred to in the Toronto Star as a "Transcendent moment", Mr. Rewak worked on the bill as a testament to his grandmother who had lost her brother in the Ukrainian famine.
A resident of Etobicoke, Allan is an active volunteer within the Ukrainian Community, the local dog walking club and various charitable causes.
Pathway Group is a Toronto-based public affairs consultancy offering a full suite of services from public policy solutions to government relations and political campaign management.
