“Few people have as extensive of a career as Ted, and we’re incredibly fortunate to draw on his experience once again,” says Jennifer Woods, president of Traversant Group. “Ted was an invaluable part of our team back in 2016, and has since gained even more knowledge of government, and formed even more relationships with officials. The depth and breadth of his expertise is going to quickly and powerfully accelerate the results we achieve for our clients.”
