Bruce Hawkins had always had a strong interest in politics. This interest not only served him well when running for election during his school years, it again came into play when he decided to run for the Arkansas House of Representatives. While he was not always on the same side of the argument as his fellow representatives, he learned quickly that he enjoyed working with them and growing a mutual respect. One of the most rewarding parts of the job for Hawkins was serving on committees like the Revenue and Taxation Committee and the Agriculture and Economic Development Committee. These committees brought about the opportunity to collaborate for the common good. When 1995 came around, Hawkins had recently decided not to run for reelection. However, his track record of building relationships and forming connections led to friends reaching out to ask for his assistance as a lobbyist. It dawned on Bruce Hawkins that he could turn his favorite aspect of politics into a full-blown career.
Without even advertising, DBH Management Consulting started to gather customers as word spread that Hawkins was having success on behalf of his clients. Many of the clients who started with the organization in 1995 continue to utilize the services of Hawkins today. As the firm grew, DBH Management Consulting started to attract the top talent in the lobbying industry. All the members are in constant communication with one another and have learned how to leverage all of their collective strengths to the put their clients in the best position to succeed. Relationship building has always been the favorite aspect of lobbying for Hawkins and this has never been more important. With shorter term limits, DBH Management Consulting must be able to forge new bonds in quicker amounts of times. It is a challenge the entire organization embraces.
