HP Global Advisors (HPGA) in Washington D.C. announced the addition of Jonathan Quarles, founder and CEO of The BTL Group — a boutique consulting firm based in Detroit — to the firm, where he will be international business advisor and ESG investment strategist.
“We are incredibly excited to have Jonathan join our team at HPGA,” says Jarvis Stewart, chairman and CEO of Highland Poe, HPGA’s parent company. “I’ve had the pleasure of watching him build strategic partnerships and create growth opportunities in the United States and globally for several years. His expertise and relationships with government leaders and investors will add immediate value to the firm’s growth strategy.”
