We are grateful for his hard work and congratulate him on this well-deserved promotion.”
In his new role, Goldstein, who joined ATC in 2008, will oversee internal operations, some aspects of human resource and sales and programming of events. He will coordinate more than 160 events throughout the year, including the Governor’s Celebration of Innovation.
