Aviation, Aerospace & Defense Executive Search

Extensive track record in recruiting high-performing aviation, aerospace & defense executives

Industry-leading executive search firm for aviation, aerospace & defense

The aviation, aerospace and defense industry has shifted rapidly due to a growing emphasis on unmanned systems, ongoing geopolitical dynamics, and a renewed interest in satellite and space exploration. While unmanned systems, such as autonomous vehicles and drones, are rising in prominence — so too are costs associated with their development. Due to defense budget constraints, a practical aerospace and defense business leader must be able to act on innovations and opportunities while offering more cost-effective solutions, new procurement strategies, and staying within regulatory compliance.
