Reston Association has officially filled two key leadership positions, the organization announced last week. 

Ed Vroom, a former finance director at a Florida-based technology company, took over as the organization’s Chief Financial Officer last week. Vroom worked as the finance director and controller for L3Harris, a company that offers services for federal, civilian, defense and intelligence customers. 

Here’s more from RA on Vroom’s background: 

Ed managed a team of 25 personnel supporting the Division with offices in Dulles, VA; Columbia, MD; Nashua, NH; Mount Prospect, IL; State College, PA and Melbourne FL. Before L3Harris, Ed was with CACI for 24 years in roles including Program Management, Business Operations and Finance. Earlier in his career, Vroom served in the Navy as the Weapons Control Officer on the USS KIDD (DDG 993), including in the Persian Gulf during Desert Shield/Desert Storm.  

RA also hired its first director of environmental resources and education last week. Michael Reynolds, who worked with the National Park Service for nearly 40 years, will take over the newly created position.

Here’s more from RA on his background: 

Reynolds brings nearly 40 years of experience with the National Park Service, where he most recently served as the Deputy Director of External and Congressional Affairs for the NPS based in Washington D.C. He previously held leadership positions throughout the US with the NPS, including Yosemite National Park, Cape Cod, Fire Island and Olympic National Parks with regional office leadership assignments in Denver, Philadelphia and Omaha. 

RA created the position in order to implement environmental policy established by the Board of Directors and create goals for the association’s environmental resource education and watershed divisions. Other roles include managing services that impact the environment in Reston and organizing educational opportunities and activities for staff and visitors.
