New Hires at The Growth Company 8-1-17
The Growth Company, an Avitus Group company, announces newly acquired talent: Jennifer Yuhas has recently joined our team as a Senior Consultant.
Jennifer Yuhas possesses an extensive background in executive coaching, negotiations, liaison work, team building, group processes, policy assessment, advocacy, communications, change management, crisis management, image consulting, speech coaching, capacity development, and strategic planning. Her hire brings these TGC, an Avitus Group company services locally to our northern region.
Before joining TGC/Avitus Group, Yuhas served as a Chief of Staff to four Alaska Legislators, led a statewide non-profit to its peak membership and effectiveness, and worked for the Fairbanks North-Star Borough Mayor’s Office successfully negotiating key projects, also serving as the communications and liaison lead for emergency management.
She most recently led Negotiations Strategy for the Pacific Salmon Treaty’s Alaska Delegation, and Joint Pacific Alaska Range Complex (JPARC) Airspace Planning for the Alaska Department of Fish & Game. Prior to that role she had served as the department’s Communications and Legislative Director, and later led a liaison team for regulatory policy and interagency coordination attending many meetings in rural Alaska.
Yuhas will be based in Fairbanks, and is looking forward to the opportunity of rural travel again including westward and southeast communities in addition to the obvious northern region. She notes, “Lynne and I have collaborated for years hoping for this opportunity. I’m thrilled that The Growth Company is now an Avitus Group company, and that geographic obstacle has been removed.”
