Forest Companies

I have had the privilege of serving these organizations in recent years; helping each of them to achieve specific objectives for improving performance or reducing operational costs.


Recently, I completed the management of a program to design, develop, certify and manufacture 3 Next Generation AirTankers based on the modification of a British Aerospace RJ85 Regional Jet.

The 2.5 year program involved over 150 team members operating in 5 time zones and 3 countries. An extremely complex program with numerous challenges and set-backs, but most rewarding at the same time.

The aircraft began the fight against wildland fire in the USA in July, 2014.
