Cheryl Bergman launched Bergman, Inc. in 2007. Bergman places an emphasis on working to raise money to elect well qualified, progressive women to local and statewide office. Her current and past clients include Gretchen Whitmer for Governor, Governor Jennifer Granholm, Senator Debbie Stabenow, The White House Project, and many other women candidates (and a few good men) running for local and legislative offices. Prior to starting Bergman, Inc., Bergman served as Deputy Campaign Manager for the 2006 Granholm for Governor Campaign overseeing fundraising, compliance and budgeting. The campaign raised a record amount for a statewide Democratic candidate in Michigan. Bergman also has non-profit management and fund development experience. Clients have included Communities in Schools of Michigan, Michigan’s Children, Children’s Trust Fund, and Michigan Prospect. She also served as agency relations director for the St. Vincent and Sarah Fisher Center and as the program administrator for the Michigan Political Leadership Program at Michigan State University (MPLP). Bergman received her BA in Journalism from Michigan State University and remains a loyal Spartan fan.
