Along with some unusually cold temperatures, the new year has ushered in several staffing changes at ADC’s Washington, D.C., headquarters.
Most significantly, Todd Herberghs, who has been the association’s staff lead as chief operating officer since 2010, will be changing duties at the Leonard Resource Group (LRG) and now will become the executive director of the National Council for Public-Private Partnerships (NCPPP). LRG has managed ADC since October 2010, and last November was selected to provide association management services for NCPPP as well.
Todd’s leadership will be missed as he has played a significant role in the growth of ADC since LRG assumed responsibility for managing the association, as well as from 2005-2009 when ADC was managed by a different organization. While he will no longer have an external role with ADC, Todd will remain involved with the association through his role in leading LRG’s association services practice.
Much of the rest of ADC staff will remain the same, with several employees assuming expanded roles. Most notably, Matt Borron has been promoted to the association’s director of operations and will be responsible for leading ADC staff on a day-to-day basis. Since coming to ADC in 2012, Matt has played a key role in event programming and coordination. He also has supported federal outreach efforts and led the formation of the association’s Veterans/Military Family Council.
Matt is a 12-year veteran of the U.S. Army and currently holds the rank of staff sergeant in the Army Reserves. Prior to joining LRG, he was the program manager for a Department of Education veterans college preparatory program at Montana State University-Billings.
Dan Cohen, the long-time editor of Defense Communities 360, is taking on a larger role with ADC as well, supporting program development for the association’s educational events.
Other long-time members of the ADC team will remain — Tim Ford is continuing as the association’s CEO and LaShawn Maloy continues as director of association services. Also, several new employees have joined the ADC team:
- Patrick Davis, director of policy and outreach
- Morgan Pinckney, association services specialist.
ADC and the National Council for Public-Private Partnerships have collaborated on events in the past, and managing both associations in close quarters at LRG is expected to create additional opportunities for partnering. Last month, the two organizations jointly sponsored the Federal Energy Workshop & Defense Energy Partnership Forum in Washington.
