He is well respected on both sides of the aisle for his leadership as point person of the annual National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which provides policy direction across the entirety of the Department of Defense (DOD).
Commended by HASC Chairman Representative Adam Smith (D-WA) for playing “an indispensable role in supporting the passage of nearly one-third of every NDAA the House has ever considered,” Paul brings top notch legislative expertise and a long record of sound judgement and evenhanded negotiating skills to the firm.
Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK), the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, recognized Paul for his “his tenacity and his understanding of the bipartisan, bicameral process,” adding that “very little gets done in Congress every single year, with bipartisan support - but the NDAA does, and that’s thanks to hard-working staffers like Paul Arcangeli.”
A recognized expert in the field of humanitarian landmine clearance and explosive ordnance disposal, Paul also served as the Director of the Department of Defense Humanitarian Demining Training Center.
Paul serves on the National Security Commission on Emerging Biotechnology. He graduated from the University of North Georgia and earned a master’s degree from the United States Naval Post Graduate School.
