Alan Bersin, Ben Rohrbaugh, and Nate Bruggeman worked extensively together at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, where they addressed some of the most difficult border security problems confronting the United States. They developed a track record of success at DHS, and, after leaving government, they decided to bring the same commitment to tackling and solving complex problems to BorderWorks Advisors and BorderWorks North America.
