Tyler “TJ” Kaplan, a graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology, began his career in politics in the office of former US Congressman Tom Price.  After learning to navigate local political issues as they pertain to federal government, TJ made the transition to state politics by working with the Georgia Tech Research Institute as a Policy Analyst assigned to provide support to the members of the Senate Resolution 68 Study Committee.  The committee was tasked with cataloguing Georgia's existing technology assets, reviewing state and national policies that encourage technology advancement, and developing specific recommendations for a strategic plan for science and technology in Georgia.

 Following his work at the Georgia Tech Research Institute, TJ worked as a top aide to Senate President Pro Tempore Butch Miller, then a Floor Leader for Governor Nathan Deal.  As a legislative aide, TJ served as a liaison between Senator Miller and the Governor’s staff, lobbyists, and constituents who sought to influence legislation in the General Assembly.  He also served as a key strategist to Senator Miller, working with other legislators in the House and Senate to build support for legislation and acquire votes.  His work aided in the passage of several significant pieces of legislation across various sectors.  During his time working in the State Senate, TJ established an extensive network within both the General Assembly and the lobbyist community.  It was there he gained a reputation for successful coalition building and strategic legislative advocacy.

Kaplan worked in Washington, DC as an Eben Tisdale Fellow with the Computing Research Association and studied at the Institute on Business and Government Affairs at Georgetown University.  He returned to his native Georgia to work for the J.L. Morgan Company in 2011.  His responsibilities at the J.L. Morgan Company have grown where he works as a strategic advisor to a number of the nation’s leading Fortune 500 companies.  His portfolio includes clients across the healthcare, transportation, education, utility, and technology sectors.  This wide range of client work serves to further augment his relationships with key decision makers and stakeholders in the advocacy community.
