He will join VJS on Oct. 1. At VJS, Dennik will work on expanding the company’s business development efforts. "We are delighted to have someone of Bob’s political background and experience to join our team to help us grow in our key strategic markets and enhance the services we deliver to our clients," said Rick Andritsch, vice president of business development for VJS.
