Reed Galen - Owner
A veteran public affairs and political professional with more than 15 years experience, Reed has been in politics and public affairs for nearly 20 years. Since 2011, Galen has been the owner of Jedburghs, LLC – a full service public affairs, public relations and political consultancy that focuses on providing boutique service to its clients.
Galen has spent the last eight years servicing major corporate clients and political campaigns, advising Fortune 50, 100 and 1000 companies in need of high-level counsel in the fields of strategic communications, procurement and legislation. In addition to his private sector work, Reed has managed several high-profile ballot measure campaigns in California and Colorado – directing all aspects of message development and voter contact.
Before moving to the private sector, Reed served as Deputy Campaign Manager for John McCain’s presidential campaign and Deputy Campaign Manager for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s successful 2006 re-election campaign.
Prior to his move to California, Galen worked on both the 2000 and 2004 campaigns of President George W. Bush’s. Between campaigns, Galen spent a year at the White House and served the Bush Administration at both the US Department of the Treasury and the Department of Homeland Security.
In 2014, Galen ran six campaigns in California, including a targeted congressional seat, a statewide race and four legislative independent expenditures. In addition, he was a debate coach for newly elected US Senator Dan Sullivan of Alaska.
Reed has had his work published in such outlets as The Orange County Register, RealClearPolitics and Politico, Breitbart California and The Blaze. He writes a weekly column on the 2016 presidential race for The New Conservative and is regularly a voice on California and national politics in The Washington Post, The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times.

What's with the Name?
During World War II, the Jedburghs Teams were three-man parachute squads who parachuted into Occupied-France prior to D-Day. Each team consisted of an American, an Englishman and a member of the French Resistance, each with an expertise but all cross-trained to perform any action necessary. We believe that the spirit of the original Jedburghs teams fits our ethos. We will do what is necessary, when and where regardless of the timing or the circumstances.
