Goins fills in as chief of Branded Products for Lincoln Industries, where he drives a business group answerable for secondary selling truck and Harley Davidson parts. He is likewise the CEO and accomplice of the Capital Cigar Lounge and leads a counseling firm, the Business Optimizer and Partners LLC.

Goins recently filled in as an official for Cabela’s World’s Foremost Bank.

Goins began in his new job Oct. 7 with a yearly pay of $200,000. The Legislature’s vote guarantees he can stay in the position.
