Hugh Moran is a Manitoba businessman and politician.

In 1975, Moran became president of By-Pass Ranch Ltd. The company has operated a ranching business, a top producing real estate brokerage, Canada Trust Moran Real Estate and one of Canada’s leading management companies, BPR Communications.

Moran has been president of BPR Communications since 1991 (www.bprcommunications.ca). The company provides executive leadership, strategic planning, communications counsel and management services to help organizations manage the challenge of change occurring in the economic, social and political environments in Canada.

Moran has represented the $200 million salmon farming industry in Atlantic Canada; was a strategist behind a lobbying campaign in response to the closure of a Canadian Forces Base that enabled the community obtain operating control of a valuable economic asset; led a Federal/Provincial Government Industrial Adjustment Committee to deal with the closure of the Campbell Soup plant; managed a hospital restructuring study for the Ontario Ministry of Health; developed a strategic plan to position the telecommunications industry as an important voice in the lobby for competition in long distance telephone services; managed a Feasibility Study–Business Plan Report prepared to preserve a historic Canadian Pacific Railway Station; and developed a strategic plan to position a not-for-profit recycling business as a leading edge environmental and sustainable development company.

Moran has been involved with a number of the charitable, not-for-profit, and professional organizations: Canadian and Manitoba Real Estate Associations, Canadian Cancer Society, United Way, VoicePrint, and the Rotary Club.

Moran ran as a Liberal candidate in Portage La Prairie in the provincial election of 1977, but finished behind his Progressive Conservative and New Democratic opponents.

At the Manitoba Liberal leadership convention held on November 30, 1980, Moran was defeated by United Church minister Doug Lauchlan by 493 votes to 400. Moran, who was thirty years old at the time, ["Jackson quites Liberal race for leadership", "Winnipeg Free Press", 29 October 1980.] had campaigned on a platform of asserting Manitoba's position on issues involving the Federal Government and greater cooperation between labour, business and government. He was supported by Guy Savoie, Peter Cole, and perennial candidate Lloyd Henderson. ["Hugh Moran joins Liberal leadership race", "Winnipeg Free Press", 25 October 1980, p. 3.]

Moran ran again in Portage La Prairie in the 1981 provincial election, finishing third.
