Josh Gaffen began his career working summer jobs in construction trailers in the mid 90’s. Since then, Josh has held multiple roles in the fields of construction consulting, technology, and healthcare. These roles have varied in their scope, ranging from treating patients in an emergency room in Oakland, CA to managing a 30-person team helping to rebuild thousands of homes in the Caribbean under Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) disaster relief contracts.
Throughout his career, Josh has held various roles in operations, business development, information technology, client account management, strategic partnerships, government relations, and marketing.
