Justin is responsible for helping BGA attract and develop the world’s top talent while also ensuring BGA’s corporate strategy aligns with clients and markets around Asia and the globe. From working to empower women and girls around the world at the U.S. Department of State to advising BGA clients on how to add value for communities and people across Asia while growing their businesses, Justin has devoted his career to fostering partnerships, international understanding, and opportunities for others. Having grown up Jewish in eastern North Carolina, Justin is equally passionate about sweet tea and corned beef. He and his wife Erin spend their free time being outsmarted by their three-year-old son Levi, eight-month-old daughter Eva and yellow lab Mazel.
