17. A little googling brings up the name of Stephen H. Coltrin

I've never heard of the guy before, but he's someone very close to Romney, who worked with him on the Olympics, and who has also had Bain as a client and boasts of his expertise in "multiple plant closings." If there was entanglement between Bain and the Olympics, it would have gone through guys like Coltrin.


Stephen H. Coltrin, Chairman and CEO of Coltrin & Associates, has given strategic counsel and communications support to executives worldwide and been the driving force behind all Coltrinís initiatives for over 30 years. His counsel has driven growth and revenue for companies including Nintendo, 3Com, Burger King, Salt Lake City Olympics, Smiths Detection, Bain Capital and others.


Stephen H. Coltrin founded Coltrin & Associates, Inc. in 1982. Under his guidance, the firm has become recognized as a strategic public relations firm giving counsel to global brands. Among the firmís most renown successes, was the dramatic turn around and successful conclusion of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City.

His expertise in crisis communications impacts issues such as multiple plant closings, union strikes, labor disputes, energy disasters and more. . . .

Among his most recognized achievements is the work he has provided for Governor Mitt Romney, the Salt Lake Organizing Commitee, and the Truce Foundation of the United States. He has assisted with the promotion of Romneyís book, Turnaround: Crisis, Leadership and the Olympic Games.


Governor Romney Attends Inaugural Hindery Media Ethics Lecture Given by Stephen Coltrin


Those on hand for the inaugural event included Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who ran the 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City prior to being elected governor. Coltrin and Romney worked together to turn around public opinion on the Olympic Games after the Organizing Committee for that event, prior to Romney's arrival, was beset with ethical scandals and a financial crisis.

(See also the discussion of Coltrin at an ex-Mormon discussion board. Opinion seems to be divided between whether he's a nice guy or an ass: http://exmormon.org/phorum/read.php?2,521947,522182)
