Goodman Management Group was launched in 2020 by Aaron Goodman. After working in this industry for over a decade, and observing the antiquated method of managing communities, Aaron set off on his own to change the industry and create a new and innovative management style. His emphasis on building a creative culture at the office where employees can think outside the box, attracts talented individuals who become part of a thriving team.
Prior to his career in community association management, Aaron served as a Sergeant in the Marine Corps Infantry and excelled in his role as a squad leader during Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. The Marine Corps’ attention to detail and demand for excellence has translated into sound business practices, which has led to great success at Goodman Management Group.
Aaron is an avid outdoorsman with a love for adventure. When he is not in the office, you will find him on a river or hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains. He and his wife, Brittany, live in Goochland with their three children on a small farm.
