The people of JWI deliver a world of contacts and inside knowledge developed over decades of high-ranking service in U.S. intelligence, government relations and security agencies, as well as in international business and investment. It is these senior internationalists who directly serve clients. Their expertise, extraordinary networks, and deep understanding of issues and cultures worldwide lead to results. Areas beyond the U.S. in which JWI’s people have a particular record of performance include Africa, the Middle East, the Caucasus and Central Asia, Southeast Asia, and Central and Eastern Europe. The leading specialists who serve on JWI’s Advisory Panel, Africa Advisory Board, Crosshatch Board and JWI Board of Directors further distinguish the firm’s strategic reach and effectiveness.
