Foreign Policy and International Development Pro Beth Tritter Joins FGS Global as Partner
8 February 2024 / Washington DC – Leading global strategic communications advisory firm FGS Global announced that Beth Tritter, a foreign policy and international development expert, has joined the firm as a partner in the Government Affairs division, based in Washington, DC. Tritter was most recently Director of the COVID-19 Response Team at USAID. She re-joined FGS Global after spending nine years working in the government and nonprofit sectors, focusing on foreign policy, global health and economic development. In her new role at FGS Global, Tritter will focus on advocacy and stakeholder engagement across markets on the most significant global issues, while building out the firm’s business where these issues intersect.
“Beth’s roles in complex global crisis responses – working at the intersection of government, global organizations, and the private sector – suit her perfectly to strengthen our International team here in Washington, DC, and to collaborate with our colleagues around the world,” said Joel Johnson, partner and Co-CEO of North America at FGS Global. “We’re excited that she has agreed to come ‘home’ to us after her extensive experience in the Executive Branch and beyond.”
At USAID, Tritter led the team responsible for designing and implementing the most significant portion of the USG's global COVID response, including vaccine and therapeutic dose donations, supply chain and cold chain assistance, support to transform oxygen capabilities in low- and middle-income countries and shape markets for medical oxygen in sub-Saharan Africa, and last-mile service delivery for vaccinations, testing, treatment and COVID care.
Before her time at USAID, Tritter was Executive Director at the Primary Health Care Performance Initiative, a Gates Foundation-funded initiative involving the WHO, UNICEF, World Bank, Global Fund and others focused on improving primary health care in low- and middle-income countries. She was also previously Vice President for the Department of Policy and Evaluation at the Millennium Challenge Corporation. In this role, she led the eligibility and selection, policy development, economic analysis and M&E teams at the organization, which is focused on economic development in low-income countries through a combination of infrastructure projects and other programs.
She previously served as managing director at the Glover Park Group, one of FGS Global’s legacy companies. She worked in the firm’s International Affairs practice, advising a portfolio of clients on organizational strategy, policy development, partnership building, legislative strategy and more.
Earlier in her career, Tritter served as legislative director for Congresswoman Nita Lowey of New York, who retired as Chair of the House Appropriations Committee. She managed Rep. Lowey's domestic and international policy agendas, with a specific focus on foreign and defense policy.
Tritter earned both a Master of Arts and a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Pennsylvania in Near and Middle Eastern Studies.
