Aviation Board Builds 5 Year Strategic Plan To Improve Safety And Global Representation
October 18, 2010
Vision and hands on leadership are part of the common thread that runs between the 4 aviation executives who have recently joined the Washington D.C. based Aviation Suppliers Association (ASA) Board of Directors.
"Our new Board will include: Richard Levin, Managing Director with A.J. Levin Company; David J. Susser, President and CEO for Seal Dynamics LLC; Brent Webb, President of Aircraft Inventory Management & Services, Ltd.; and Mitchell Weinberg, President at International Aircraft Associates, Inc.," remarks Michele Dickstein, President of ASA. "They will be joining current directors, with leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), to build and begin implementation of a 5 year strategic plan that will improve aviation safety as well as global representation for our world-wide membership."
Knowing what works and will be challenging to implement on a global basis is key. "During profitable times, expansion, and correcting economies our company has remained active with ASA, which has made us stronger," states Richard Levin, Managing Director for A.J. Levin Company. "As a board member, one area of focus will be to ensure that best practices, versus theory, drive more international representation which will add value across our organizations membership."
Engaging and expanding membership strengthens every entity. "ASA has experienced 16% growth in membership that crosses 19 countries, releases 'The Update Report' to more than 5,000 industry constituents, and is on track for more expansion in 2011," adds David Susser, President and CEO for Seal Dynamics LLC. "This is an area that I am excited to be a part of and will include work with ASA's strategic workshops, world-wide conference, and industry panels that shape the aviation industry."
Promoting advancement in business and quality practices that streamline processes will continue. "My involvement with ASA has ranged from evaluating improvements in technology to oversight on the promulgation of the Electronic 8130-3," replies Brent Webb, President of Aircraft Inventory Management & Services. "My role will continue to work in areas that modernize the industry, but will positively impact the bottom lines of our memberships businesses in the future."
Continuity in leadership is rare in today's world but remains critical to successful organizations. "I am honored by the members unwavering faith in me and the value of my contributions. It gives me great pleasure to continue to serve on the ASA board," notes Mitchell Weinberg, President at International Aircraft Associates. "Currently ASA is presented with many opportunities to expand its international footprint and provide tremendous value to the world's aviation marketplace. I am looking forward to being part of this."
