AIA AT THE PARIS AIR SHOW 2015June 17, 2015 | in News
Author: Keith Mordoff —
The Paris Air Show may be many things, but at the end of the day it’s about business. The business of international sales; cooperation and partnering; forging relationships and sharing ideas. AIA’s new executive leadership team understands this objective and has been doing just that at this year’s Paris Air Show. Whether it’s been giving speeches, convening meetings or talking to companies, AIA’s President and CEO Dave Melcher and COO Bob Durbin have been busy advocating for the products and services only the U.S. aerospace and defense industry can provide. We are having an active week here in Paris and we’re excited for the opportunities that this week and the coming months will provide to the companies of America’s aerospace association.
