Gouhin, who will join ISA on Jan. 3, comes to his new position from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), where he is currently chief operating officer. In his 15 years at the AIAA, he was responsible for developing organizational strategies, launching numerous new ventures, enhancing the effectiveness of publishing and training programs, and conceiving strategic marketing and communications programs, according to an ISA press release.

Gouhin will replace Rob Renner, whose resignation as ISA executive director after a 12-month tenure was announced last May.
