Novitas’s Chris Taylor makes his connections count to win government work – The Washington Post

Taylor’s 10-person staff packed the small room. It was a peculiar and remarkable group; one that made sense only in Washington. The middle-aged man in the blazer with the salt-and-pepper goatee was Jose A. Rodriguez Jr., the former director of the CIA’s National Clandestine Service. He was best known for his controversial decision to destroy secret videos showing CIA interrogators waterboarding suspected terrorists. Rodriguez was working on a deal for Taylor in Mexico. Next to him was a Navy SEAL who had spent most of the past decade at war or in the shadows. His final assignment was carrying the nuclear codes for President Obama. There were four government contracting experts. Among them, they had a combined 75 years of experience in the industry. Taylor’s wife, Shella, was there, too — sitting on the floor because all the chairs were filled.
