Managing Director, Avionics & Aviation Solutions, Farnborough, £120k-150k+ package Our client is an innovator in the provision of high quality avionics and aviation solutions to aerospace OEMs and airlines on a global basis. The business is private equity owned and currently enjoys turnover of over £30 million per year. The business has built strong relationships with manufacturers including Airbus, and also has a significant emerging business in aviation aftermarket and refurbishment projects. The business operates from a location near Farnborough in Hampshire and has enjoyed year on year growth for the past five years. Following acquisition and a further round of investment in new products and supply chain processes, an opportunity has now arisen for a new Managing Director to join the business to take it through to the next stage of maturity and growth.
