Here's what our clients have to say

“Robert McBride is a results-oriented leader and partner. We have very successfully worked with him as our Government Affairs partner in New York. He is a strategic, creative, entrepreneurial, and well-connected problem solver. Robert has been the president of a global trade association and a hands-on operator with first-hand experience in owning and running a business. He is also astute in governmental legislative and regulatory matters. I am pleased to give him my highest recommendation.”

Mark Joseph, CDO

Transdev Group

“Robert met us in Australia and identified our technology as world leading. He very efficiently helped us launch in North America providing a wide range of support including starting an office, complying with all the corporate governance requirements of a U.S. entity, and launching our product. His real strength and value then increased with strong advice on marketing, sales, and positioning a business for growth in North America. We are now trading in 42 U.S. cities and have made an Australian business succeed in the U.S. with Robert’s support throughout the entire journey.”

Matthew Bellizia, CEO

Mobile Tracking and Data Pty, Ltd.

“Working with Robert McBride made our work and growth infinitely easier. I highly value him as a problem-solving resource. He was a vital resource when it came to things like obtaining the necessary licensing and permissions from the City of Denver for our building upgrades and modifications—something that isn’t easy to do in Denver! We know we’ll always get open and honest communication from Robert, no matter the topic or issue; his straightforward and direct answers keep things moving. And I highly appreciate his willingness to sit and talk over whatever issue or question is the current business challenge. His expertise and personable nature make choosing Robert as your business’ problem solver an easy decision.”

Tim McCarthy

Eureka Vapor Colorado

“Having Robert McBride, and the team at McBride Consulting and Business Development Group has helped greatly in navigating the complicated and often contradictory laws, and regulations governing our business, which is now the top producing video lottery casino in New York State. Their dedication, knowledge of our industry, and attention to achieving our goal has been invaluable. Robert McBride is a great resource, especially when it comes to problem-solving. I highly recommend him as a first-call resource.”

Phil Nolan, President and CEO

Suffolk Regional Off-Track Betting Corp. and Jake’s 58 Casino
