“BENS is fortunate to have been led for the last three and a half year by an outstanding leader, General Joe Votel, who brought the full resources of BENS members to bear on the most pressing national security challenges facing our defense industrial base.

BENS is now equally fortunate to have found another leader who will build on those accomplishments, further leveraging our members’ commercial sector experience to support our government partners. General Ray is the ideal leader for us to address the new and emerging challenges our nation now faces. We look forward to his leadership and welcome him to the BENS team.”
