Canadian news media company Postmedia has hired Alberta Premier Jason Kenney's former chief of staff to lobby the new United Conservative government on how it could be involved with the new "energy war room" promised by Kenney during the recent Alberta election campaign.

Nick Koolsbergen became chief of staff for Kenney after he won the UCP leadership in fall of 2017. Koolsbergen left that position in August 2018 to manage the UCP election campaign.

After the UCP won 63 of 87 seats on April 16, Koolsbergen said he was moving into the private sector. He announced the formation of Wellington Advocacy with former Stephen Harper policy director Rachel Curran on May 6. Koolsbergen is also a veteran of Harper's PMO.
