Jefferson Waterman International
Jefferson Waterman International is a corporate firm that engages in an assortment of lobbying efforts, and other PR related activities, on behalf of a diverse list of international clients. Their clientele has in the past included the Republic of Croatia, the Republic of Algeria, the Republic of Rwanda, the Chevron Chemical Company and the American Military University.
The company website asserts that JWI helps “clients achieve objectives.” Although most of these seem to be related to corporate affairs (like the signing of contracts in foreign environments) and are relatively benign in nature, some have gone beyond into regions that may be perceived as controversial. Perhaps most famously JWI was involved in helping the Republic of Croatia deal with negative fallout resulting from that country’s actions during its cessation from the Former Republic of Yugoslavia.
The founder and Chief Executive Officer of Jefferson Waterman International, Charles Waterman, held prior positions within the United States Central Intelligence Agency.
