Our Team of Emergency Management Consultants
Our years of experience and incredible depth of knowledge is second to none. Each of our emergency management consultants has played an integral role in disaster recovery efforts on behalf of our clients. This includes:
- Securing over $250M for Jackson County in the wake of Hurricane Katrina
- Recovering over $500M in FEMA-obligated funds during COVID-19
- Developing over 500 FEMA Project Worksheets
Whether you are a homeowner, business owner, or community leader, we can help you devise a preparatory plan and assist in the mitigation of any potential hazards that can be addressed. We can also assist and guide you in your recovery journey. Our extensive knowledge of available government grants and programs can help get you back to normal- effectively and efficiently. Across the team, we’ve worked on thousands of projects and have a truly impressive repertoire working at the state and local levels. This includes the implementation of new programs and hundreds of millions of dollars of recovered FEMA obligated funds across multiple states.
Our expertise goes beyond navigating the aftermath of natural disasters. When COVID-19 took hold of the country, businesses felt the effects. Our emergency management consultants were ready to help those business owners in their time of need.

Meet The Team
Jon has served as a Deputy Program Manager and Program Manager on several projects from South Carolina to New York and California. He was also instrumental in administering and fulfilling the newly implemented 428 Public Assistance Pilot Program. In addition, he was influential in the Sandy Recovery Improvement Act of 2013, also known as SIRA. In many ways, the passage of SRIA represents the most significant legislative change to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) substantive authorities since the enactment of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act in 1988.
Jon holds a Bachelor of Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, as well as a Master of Business Administration from the University of Florida.
