The Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix Business & Professionals Groups named Adam Goodman as its 2017 chairman.

Goodman will build on the strong foundation created by Eliot Kaplan, who chaired B&P for three years. Goodman collaborated with Kaplan to create B&P’s annual signature event, “Corner Office: Lessons from Jewish Business Leaders.”

“I am excited to lead the Business & Professionals Groups because it is an opportunity to attract and engage thousands of new people who otherwise might not have been exposed to the Federation,” said Goodman, who is president and CEO of Goodmans Interior Structures.

There are plans for a B&P March Madness competition, continued networking events and other professional growth opportunities under Goodman’s leadership. B&P strengthens relationships among Jewish professionals through education, social networking activities and communal and philanthropic engagement. It consists of three divisions: the Cardozo Society for legal professionals, the Real Estate & Finance Division and Chai Tech for the technology industry.
