Bryson Hull brings two decades of journalism and communications experience to HBW Resources, having reported on politics, business and wars in nearly 20 countries across Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and North America.
As Vice President of Communications and Media based in Washington, DC, Bryson advises HBW’s clients on communications strategies to propel their business objectives forward and navigate complex challenges including policy debates, crises and long-term threats to their reputation and license to operate.
Before joining HBW in 2019, Bryson advised Fortune 500 clients in the energy, finance, and transportation sectors on traditional and digital communications strategies for a Washington-based media intelligence company, developing innovative, nuanced solutions for persistent problems, new market & country entries and reputation management.
For most of his 17-year journalism career, Bryson worked for Reuters in roles including bureau chief, foreign correspondent, and country manager. That put him in frequent contact with heads of state and CEOs, and at the intersection of business and politics in dozens of countries, industries, and environments.
Reuters first hired him in Houston to cover exploration and production companies, pipeline operators, integrated utilities and Enron Corp., which blew up a year later. Bryson has also worked for The Associated Press and Bloomberg and, as a consultant, advising private clients including the African Development Bank.
A Connecticut native and father of two, he holds a Bachelor of Science in Journalism from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. He speaks Spanish and Swahili.
