Founded as Blakey & Associates, Inc. in 1993 by Marion Blakey, the former Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration and current President and Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce North America, the firm specializes in transportation but serves a variety of industries. Two senior consultants, Jeff Agnew and Leslie Blakey, took over the firm in 2001, when President Bush tapped Marion Blakey to be Chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board.
