Aretha currently serves as the PAC Manager for a number of VSA clients. She is responsible for ensuring sound financial management and compliance with federal, state and local campaign finance and election laws. Her expertise in this area has increased demand for her services, both among current clients and new clients. Aretha will be responsible for developing and managing this line of business development at VSA.
In addition to her PAC management work, Aretha will be leading VSA’s efforts to expand our fly-in and virtual fly-in offerings to clients. Having successfully organized, planned, and executed several large-scale fly-ins for clients over the past several years, Aretha’s leadership on these events is critical. Particularly as more and more clients are having to meet with Members of Congress, their staffs and key Administration policy officials on virtual platforms, Aretha will ensure client expectations are not only met, but exceeded.
“Over the last several years, Aretha took it upon herself to develop two new lines of business for the firm – PAC management and Fly-In execution. Her leadership and expertise on these issues enabled her to establish and then grow the firm’s business in these areas. This promotion is a reflection of that work,” said Stu Van Scoyoc. “It was an easy decision to recognize Aretha’s contributions in this way.”
Aretha has been with VSA for 15 years and has served in several capacities. Before joining VSA, Aretha was a Configuration Manager at BAE Systems, managing change control of AEGIS class destroyers in accordance with the NAVSEA 400D Configuration Management Plan.
She is a United States Navy veteran and originally hails from the Bronx, New York. Aretha lives in Maryland with her husband and their 2 children.
