Raul Tuset

Partner – Virginia & Washington, D.C.

To call Raul Tuset “well-rounded” would be a massive understatement; to call him a modern renaissance man would be far more apt.

For the past 20 years, Raul has brought exceptional and valuable skills to his Insigniam clients. His background in human services, the federal government, and in drug-abuse treatment and prevention education has developed something truly unique: a singular ability to support any and all initiatives of corporate change, strategy development, and implementation of policy.

Prior to joining Insigniam, Raul worked as an organizational development consultant at the Westinghouse National Issues Center. His clients there included members of the Westinghouse Defense Unit, as well as the federal government and other companies.

Raul has dedicated much of his life to the prevention of drug abuse and the development of programs for troubled youth, including oversight of joint projects with the National Institute of Drug Abuse and the Multicultural Resource Center. He also fielded and managed consulting teams in the Midwest for the State Initiatives Program of the U.S. Department of Justice.

His areas of expertise range from:

  • Contributing significantly to the design and launch of the Danone Leadership College in South America, Asia, the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, and Europe, a project resulting in a massive leadership enrollment.
  • Mobilizing the middle management level in the leadership of Cone Health to transform into the top percentile of the U.S. as measured by national patient care standards.
  • Directing the first halfway house for delinquent boys and girls under the auspices of the Division of Youth Services of the State of Massachusetts
  • Advising the Chairman of the Arkansas Juvenile Justice Advisory Group on the redesign of the state’s programs for troubled youth.
  • Organizing a community association in Fairfax County, Virginia, and serving as its president to successfully challenge road-building plans that would have caused disastrous effects on the environment, land values, and the safety of residents.
  • Leading a course in Spanish for 800 employees of a pharmaceutical plant in Puerto Rico in order to enroll them in a company-wide initiative to produce a breakthrough in quality and re-establish itself with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Passionate about the contribution he makes to the world with his work, Raul is inspired by spending time in nature, hiking, and bass fishing. A family man as well, he loves spending time with his wife, Barbara, their son and daughter, who are mature adults, and his four grandchildren.
