"I'm excited about the opportunity to work with this talented and dedicated team to explore the new possibilities that now exist given the combined strengths of our organization."
Standerski's extensive aviation experience includes 25 years in Rockwell Collins' Commercial Systems and Government Systems businesses. Most recently, he was vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems. He previously served as vice president and general manager, Air Transport Systems, and as vice president, Strategy Development for Commercial Systems.
