I'm pleased to make myself available for consulting and contract work, and to match my professional experience with your immediate and strategic corporate needs. I have twenty three years of government service and thirteen years in the Boeing Commercial Airplane Company, in both working level and senior management positions, which makes me uniquely qualified to help you achieve your long and short term goals regarding type and production certification, process management and strengthening your regulatory relationships. I have been the “go-to guy” within the Boeing Company in several critical positions where I assisted in solving difficult emergent and strategic problems between the company and the FAA, with a proven successful track record. I'm confident that I have a complete understanding of the needs and motivators of organizations in both the public and private sectors.
Because of my extensive experience in the FAA and industry, a key skill I bring to the table is the ability to facilitate positive and value-added discussions between you and the FAA in a manner that meets your needs and resonates with the FAA mission, and is mutually beneficial.
In a nutshell, the FAA exists to:
1 Continuously improve aviation safety and 2 Maintain public confidence in the air transportation system
The FAA accomplishes that mission in a number of ways, which includes managing the regulatory structure, conducting oversight operations and remaining responsive to the public needs.
My FAA experience applied to your business will help you understand how best to interface with the FAA. I will work directly with you and the FAA to understand your company mission, product, people, culture and organization, as well as your relationship with customers and FAA oversight office, and facilitate conversations with the intent to establish operating norms that will allow your business to thrive in the regulatory environment.
