Jack Teitelman is a retired DEA supervisory special agent and the founder and CEO of TITAN Group.

He currently resides in Randolph, New Jersey, with his wife and TITAN cofounder Sharon, along with their dog Travis and cat Lola.

Kelley Detweiler is the managing partner and chief operating officer of TITAN Group. In 2017, Kelley helped Jack and Sharon Teitelman cofound TITAN Group, merging her experience in packaging compliance and marketing with their vision to provide DEA compliance solutions to healthcare and veterinary professionals working with controlled substances.
