Bruce F. Freed

Center for Political Accountability
Washington, DC, USA

Bruce F. Freed is president of the Center for Political Accountability in Washington, D.C. CPA is non-partisan, non-profit organization whose mission is to bring transparency and accountability to corporate political spending. It has pioneered the examination of corporate political spending and the risk it poses to companies and shareholders and produces the CPA-Zicklin Index that rates companies on their political disclosure and accountability policies and practices. As a result of CPA’s efforts, more than 100 large companies, including over half of the S&P 100, have adopted political disclosure. Mr. Freed was a co-author of The Conference Board’s Handbook on Corporate Political Activity and chairs the advisory committee of The Conference Board Committee on Political Spending.

In his work with CPA, which he founded in 2003, he has drawn on his three decades of experience in journalism, Congress, and strategic public affairs. He has been a columnist and a commentator on public radio on business and politics. Mr. Freed has spoken at programs of The Conference Board, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Delaware’s Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance. In addition to the handbook, he has authored articles in the Financial Times, Huffington Post, BusinessWeek, The Conference Board Review, and Directors and Boards. He received his B.A. from the University of Chicago and M.A. from Brandeis University.
