The Roosevelt Group (TRG) announced today that Captain (Ret) Lawrence E. (Larry) Meehan has joined The Roosevelt Group as a full-time Senior Advisor.

After over 30 years of service in the U.S. Navy, Larry Meehan recently retired from the Navy International Program Office where he served as the Director Middle East Division and was responsible for all foreign military sales programs for the United States Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard that pertain to the Middle East with a specific focus on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Bahrain and Kuwait.

“Larry’s military service took him around the world and right down the street to Capitol Hill. He has an exceptional understanding of the ways in which international partnerships, the policy-making process and our nation’s most innovative companies combine to support our national security. Larry will lead our foreign military sales initiatives.”

John Simmons, Managing Partner

Prior to that assignment, Larry was the Deputy Director of Travel Operations for the Secretary of Defense, supporting Ash Carter, Jim Mattis, and Bob Work. He planned and executed 57 foreign and domestic trips, and served with the Secretary’s personal staff, assisting in strategic communications. Larry also brings additional Congressional expertise to the TRG team, working between 2013 to 2015 as the Defense Fellow for Senator Jack Reed, Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Before heading to the Hill, he was the Commanding Officer, Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron EIGHT, and during that command tour, completed two deployments to the Middle East and safely executed more than 5,100 flight hours.

“Meeting our national security goals requires collaboration across many different sectors, levels of government, and nations. As a Senior Advisor with The Roosevelt Group, I am eager to continue building those partnerships as we prepare to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.”
