WBD Employee Spotlight: Jackson Stuteville

Meet Jackson Stuteville, a WBD Associate who joined the firm in October 2020. Jackson provides general management consulting and strategic advisory services to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), working specifically within the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO). “On a daily basis, I interact with FEMA professionals who are focused on optimizing IT and cybersecurity processes, ensuring professional development opportunities for IT personnel, and crafting cohesive IT-oriented policies and procedures,” he says. “We strive to measure success, manage performance within the OCIO, and create achievable milestones for the future.”

Aside from client work, Jackson is also involved with the Intellectual Capital Group (ICG), a new internal organization at WBD which is tasked with generating and storing original content such as blogs, articles, and white papers. “WBD has a wealth of experience in several different areas such international development, acquisitions, strategic communications, and public policy. ICG harnesses this experience to create content that is lasting, and valuable to both current and prospective clients,” Jackson said of his decision to join the firm and take on new projects. To date, Jackson has authored two articles pertaining to the Global Health Supply Chain (GHSC) and the Development Impact Bonds, both of which can be found here.

WBD features an intelligent and innovative workforce, a diverse client portfolio, and ample professional development opportunities. More importantly, WBD is a small firm filled with kind people who care about the success of their colleagues, all of which is why he chose WBD. “The firm has an impressive pool of talent, and I’m grateful to be a part of such of a team. In D.C., there are smart, impressive people on every corner but not all of them are kind and results-oriented. Since starting with WBD, everyone has gone above and beyond to ensure that I am comfortable in my role and equipped with all the tools I need to succeed.”

Prior to joining WBD, Jackson occupied numerous roles on Capitol Hill and around Washington, D.C. He has previously served as a Legislative Intern in the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as a Summer Researcher within the Foreign Affairs, Defense and Trade Division at the Congressional Research Service. Most recently, he was a member of the Research and Policy Analysis team at Forbes-Tate Partners, a full-service government relations firm.

Jackson was born and raised in Durant, Oklahoma. He received his B.A. in Political Science and History, as well as his M.A. in International and Area Studies from the University of Oklahoma. In his spare time, Jackson enjoys playing golf, watching college football (Boomer Sooner!) reading narrative non-fiction, fishing, hiking, or sampling a local craft beer.

At WBD, our people make us great
