Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush ® managed several hurricanes and natural disasters during his two terms as the state's executive, but now he is preparing to respond to storms from the helm of a for-profit company instead of from within the governor's mansion.
Bush's newly created firm, Old Rhodes Holding LLC, joined forces with O'Brien's Response Management to form a for-profit disaster response company, the Maritime Executive reported.

O'Brien's is a subsidiary of SEACOR Holdings.

"We are pleased to enter into this partnership with one of the leading response organizations in the United States, backed by SEACOR's global network," Bush said. "Together we look forward to helping a broader array of organizations and communities become more resilient through preparation, response, communication and recovery."

Charles Fabrikant, executive chairman of SEACOR Holdings, told the paper that Bush is especially primed to lead the response company.

"Governor Bush has unparalleled experience in crisis management, as he helped guide Florida through some of the most significant natural disasters in its history," Fabrikant said. "He will be integral to our ongoing growth initiatives and we welcome him to the team."

"Where is the intersection between the world's deep hunger and your deep gladness?"
The Bush family is itself a for profit disaster causing company. It is the family business. I'm calling a conflict of interest here.
