William Jaffe Professional Portrait

Mr. William Jaffe was a co-founder and the Executive Vice President/Chief Growth Officer for TAPE. He was responsible for TAPE’s aggressive, high-growth strategy, focusing on corporate development, including certifications (ISO 9001), M&A, IDIQ PMO, Mentor-Protégé (both as Protégé to a large integrator and as Mentor to a small fellow SDVOSB) and corporate proposal responsibilities.  Mr. Jaffe’s blog – FederalSmallBizSavvy.com – is a virtual dialogue with other rapidly-growing small and mid-tier Federal contractors.  Readers of his blog will benefit from TAPE and its partners’ proven experience and expertise in crafting small business growth strategies that are flexible, adaptable, practical, and successful. 

Mr. Jaffe also served as President of the CEO Roundtable for the Mid-Tier Advocacy.  This non-partisan organization is made up of the country’s top veteran-owned, service disabled, hub-zone certified, minority-owned and woman-owned businesses and works towards the elimination of the competitive disadvantage facing mid-tier government support services companies.
