Special Advisor
Ambassador David H. Wilkins is Special Advisor to Global Public Affairs and a Partner at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP where he chairs the Public Policy and International Law practice group, which focuses primarily on representing businesses on both sides of the US-Canadian border and offers experience on a wide range of strategic bilateral issues.
Mr. Wilkins was nominated by President George W. Bush to become the United States Ambassador to Canada.
During his tenure, Ambassador Wilkins helped to resolve some of the highest profile issues between Canada and the United States, including the decades-old softwood lumber trade dispute. He is known on both sides of the border as an honest broker who worked for solutions on the toughest issues - energy, national security, the environment, trade and travel - impacting millions of citizens in both countries.
Most recently, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley tapped Ambassador Wilkins to serve as chairman of her transition team as she worked to form her new administration.
Prior to his appointment as Ambassador to Canada, Mr. Wilkins practiced law for 34 years in Greenville, South Carolina, and developed extensive experience in civil litigation and appellate practice.
Mr. Wilkins was elected to the South Carolina House of Representatives in 1980 and served there for 25 years. He served six years as Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and two years as Speaker Pro Tem before being elected Speaker, a post he held for 11 years. He was the first Republican elected speaker of any legislative body in the South since the 1880s and retired as one of the longest-serving speakers in the country. In 2001, he served as President of the National Speakers' Association.
Mr. Wilkins served as State Chairman of the Bush-Cheney '04 campaign and as Co-Chair of the campaign in 2000. He was appointed by the President to the Board of Visitors of the United States Academy at West Point in 2002 and served for three years. He currently serves as Chairman of the Clemson University Board of Trustees, as well as on the boards of directors for AbitibiBowater, Porter Airlines, the Royal Bank of Canada and the Greenville Area Development Corporation. He is also a member of the Advisory Board to the Canadian American Business Council.
A native of Greenville, South Carolina, Ambassador Wilkins earned his undergraduate degree from Clemson University and his law degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law. He also served in the U.S. Army and U.S. Army Reserves.
Ambassador to Canada, David ..., 14 Nov 2013 [cached]
Ambassador to Canada, David Wilkins, was on well-familiar ground Tuesday when he landed in Toronto for a series of meetings and events.
He was delighted to stop by the Sun News Network's Toronto studios where he enjoyed chats with SNN talents Adrienne Batra and Ezra Levant. The discussions focused on the stalled Keystone Pipeline project and U.S. politics.
That evening, Wilkins was honored to be the guest speaker at a very special celebration marking the launch of the new law firm, Shouli and Partners, LLP - allied with Deloitte - and specializing in business immigration legal services and cross border travel law.
Speaking of great Canadians, Wilkins caught up with Frank and Julie McKenna - but not in Toronto, rather in Wilkins' hometown of Greenville, SC.
The McKennas were in sunny South Carolina last weekend and David and Susan Wilkins enjoyed dinner with them.
David Wilkins is proud to serve as a senior policy advisor to GPA.

It's been another hectic week for Wilkins who, as president of the Clemson University Board of Trustees, has been leading the search for a new university president.
On Monday, that hard work over the past six months or so came to a very satisfying end with Chairman Wilkins breaking some big news on that front.
Clemson Board of Trustees Chairman David Wilkins announced the board's selection Monday.
Wilkins praised Clements' job at West Virginia University, saying the college set records in private fundraising, enrollment and research funding during his tenure.
And while we are covering Clemson, we would be remiss (read: we would get Wilkins really peeved) if we failed to mention that tonight - yes, you read that right - this night at 7:30, the Clemson Tigers football team is taking on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
Well, that's the building where you'll find the offices of our state's representatives to the South Carolina House, as well as committee hearing rooms, and the speaker's office - the place where David Wilkins was when the White House called with the news he was to be the president's nominee for U.S. ambassador to Canada back in 2005.
