“Jeff and I worked together for many years, and he was always the go-to guy for client crisis situations and complex policy challenges. What makes him such a valuable counselor is his strong grasp of domestic and international public policy issues as well as his sophisticated understanding of how the media, government and business intersect. His instincts are great and his relationships throughout Washington are strong. Like me, those who have worked with him as colleagues and others who have been his clients have immense respect for his counsel and consider him a great colleague all around.”

I relied heavily on Jeff whose quick response to our communications needs was always both strategically smart and highly actionable. Among other accomplishments, his counsel helped us successfully raise our profile among key audience groups. To any assignment, Jeff brings a wealth of world knowledge and communications savvy, plus a proven ability to sense an opportunity and how best to seize it. Jeff Weintraub is tremendous asset to any organization that needs a smart strategist and deft tactician, all in one.

He became an indispensable and important extension of our own team.”

This all happened because Jeff and his colleagues developed great strategies, communications materials and messaging for all types of media channels and for each stakeholder group.”
