Government & Public Affairs Advisor William Craig Named Among NH200 Leaders for 2024

Each year, New Hampshire Business Review’s NH200 Initiative acknowledges and celebrates entrepreneurs and leaders from various sectors across the Granite State. This year, NHBR selected Bernstein Shur Government & Public Affairs Advisor William Craig for recognition among the NH200 for 2024.

“We are thrilled to unveil the 2024 edition of the New Hampshire 200 list, showcasing an extraordinary cohort of leaders who are spearheading progress in their respective industries within the Granite State,” stated Mike Cote, Editor, New Hampshire Business Review. “With the assistance of our first two classes of NH 200 honorees, we were able to find 200 new and unique recipients, representing a cross-section of the thriving pulse of business in New Hampshire today. We eagerly anticipate presenting the people of New Hampshire with this compelling glimpse into the lives of individuals who are undeniably leaving an indelible and positive mark on our state.”

A prominent Democrat with nearly two decades of high-level political experience, Will is known for his commitment to client success and amicable approach with the ability to see both sides of the issue. Will serves as a public affairs consultant and lobbyist, working with political, corporate, and non-profit clients who have strategic, communications, or coalition building needs that go beyond advocacy—and he brings a knack for seeing emerging business opportunities, born from leadership experiences serving as the Economic Development Director for the City of Manchester, the Chair of the Manchester Development Corporation, and his government affairs and community relations work at New England’s largest utility.

With family roots in New Hampshire politics going back nearly a century, Will’s interest in state and local politics and law come naturally. Will got his start in politics as a high school student knocking on doors for local candidates and passionately advocating for his cause with whoever answered.

The NH200 honorees will be recognized at a reception in Concord on April 11, 2024.
