Will Goodman Named ARA Senior Vice President

ARA is pleased to announce the promotion of Will Goodman to ARA Senior Vice President.

Goodman joined ARA in September 2020 as an ARA Vice President and was tasked with establishing and directing ARA’s Government Relations enterprise.

In this role, Goodman works closely with ARA leadership to help identify key prospects for growth and secure funding for important ARA programs, regularly engaging in visits with a wide network of legislators and policy makers in Congress and the Executive Branch. Will also supports the growth of ARA’s defense business as part of ARA’s efforts to offer innovative solutions to critical problems of national importance.

“Will’s exceptional performance in this role over the last two years warrants his promotion to ARA Senior Vice President. Prior to joining ARA in Sept 2020, Will articulated a vision for growing a successful Government Relations (GR) enterprise at ARA. Since that time, Will has exceeded expectations in establishing and leading a GR enterprise, and securing new congressional initiatives for ARA.”
