Our Team

We have various backgrounds in public affairs and communications, but are like-minded in our strong work ethic, strategic prowess and “get it done” attitude.

Wayne "Jabo" Covert Partner

Jabo has more than 30 years of experience helping clients from an array of industries navigate the legislative and regulatory environments around complex issues. He draws on his vast network of relationships across the country and his deep understanding of how to advance a policy agenda to solve clients’ business challenges.

He builds upon his experience working with a variety of businesses and industries to help clients see their issues from a 360-degree perspective and is able to call on colleagues across the country to find the perfect match for his clients’ needs. His can-do attitude and approach to long-term strategic planning help clients achieve their goals in even the most antagonistic legislative and business environments.

Prior to joining Capital Results, Jabo served as senior vice president of government relations for one of the nation’s leading financial services firms, and oversaw lobbying efforts for a diverse suite of companies at a Tennessee-based business management firm.

Jabo helped a financial services client work with private equity investors, dramatically growing the client’s market share while navigating a patchwork of state regulations and political environments. He oversaw the planning, funding and development of Tennessee’s newest and fastest-growing airport, and he secured state and local tax incentives to facilitate the purchase and expansion of the oldest custom men’s clothing line in the U.S. As a licensed attorney, he has successfully argued before the South Carolina Supreme Court.
