Arthur D. Little (ADL) today announced that Chuck Goodnight has been appointed as a Partner in the US, where he will lead the US Nuclear Energy team as part of the company’s Energy & Utilities Practice. The appointment builds on ADL’s global reputation as a leading consultancy in the Energy sector.
Chuck’s career spans 35 years, and he has built a reputation as an internationally recognized expert in energy and utilities. His work has crossed through North America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, as he engaged with executives at Fortune 500 companies, institutional organizations, and international governments. Prior to joining ADL, Chuck founded Goodnight Consulting in 2001 and served as president of the US-based management consultancy for two decades. Originally focused on the electric power industry, the firm expanded over time into the international nuclear industry, and then into the broader energy and utilities sector.
“Chuck joins ADL at an exciting time of growth for the company and innovation in the energy and utilities industry,” said Craig Wylie, Managing Partner of Arthur D. Little's US office. “He also brings his network of external advisors to his role at ADL, which aligns perfectly with our open consulting model.

“For today’s leaders, energy continues to be at the top of the agenda.
