CSG Welcomes New Government Relations Consultant

Western Canada’s premiere public affairs firm continues to grow with the addition of Mathew Preston.


Mathew Preston understands politics and policy in Alberta. His wide-ranging experience includes serving as a Chief of Staff, working as a campaign manager, and providing strategic support and advice for public affairs.

“I’m incredibly excited to be joining Canadian Strategy Group (CSG).  CSG has a mindset of adding value that comes from a determination to succeed and I plan to maintain that outlook with our clients,” Mathew said.

In addition to his professional experience, Mathew brings a depth of knowledge outside of politics, from farming to fighter planes. He has worked in Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, and Edmonton. There are few communities in his home province he hasn’t visited in one capacity or another. When needed, Mathew is always ready to help on the family farm in northeastern Alberta.

As provinces and municipalities prepare for political change, decarbonizing economies, and constrained budgets, CSG is adding expertise and broadening perspectives to help clients manage expectations and risk.

“Mathew’s wealth of experience is adding bench strength to our team at CSG,” said Hal Danchilla. “His range of knowledge, skill as a writer and analyst, and enthusiasm are going to deliver concrete results for our clients.”

Mathew holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History and Political Science from Grant MacEwan University and a Master Degree in Strategic Studies from the University of Calgary’s Centre for Military, Strategic, and Security Studies.
