Tim Brett, President
Well versed in all aspects of public relations, governmental affairs and community relations, Tim served in the South Carolina House of Representatives from 1982 until 1986. In addition, he was the Congressional Staff Aide to U.S. Representative Carroll A. Campbell, Jr. and later served as a campaign manager for Campbell’s 1984 re-election campaign.
After leaving the House of Representatives in 1986, Tim became political director for Congressman Campbell’s successful campaign for Governor of South Carolina. He was later named senior executive assistant to Governor Campbell, where he managed legislative affairs and made appointment recommendations for state boards and commissions.
Tim left that post in 1987 to become director of governmental affairs and community relations for Michelin North America. For nearly seven years he was responsible for managing Michelin’s contracted lobbyists around the country, overseeing corporate contributions and managing Michelin’s participation in community affairs.
Since leaving Michelin in 1993, Tim has managed his own public relations companies ranging in size from small to large. In 2015, Tim downsized to form BrettSC to take on a small number of key clients of his choosing.

Tim Brett began his political career with me in the late 1970s. I have known him for more than 20 years and I am not the least bit surprised at his success. I have long recognized in him the sense of purpose and drive so apparent in those who rise to the top of their profession.The late Carroll A. Campbell, Jr.
