– Matt O'Mara, VP International, BIO

I’ve worked professionally with Jeff Nawn for years. He has a curious mind and a flexible intelligence that makes him a formidable problem-solver for his clients. I’m always impressed with his willingness to try new ideas and ways of thinking, which are cornerstones of futures and foresight, but a rare find in his line of work.
