Change is constant in the aviation, aerospace, and defense sectors, with increasing demand for new and more efficient aircraft, new business models for transporting people and goods, the need for growth in new areas of technology in response to asymmetrical threats to national security, and geographic shifts to faster growing regions such as Asia, the Middle East, and India. In response, businesses are prioritizing leaders who possess strong international experience; who can innovate, collaborate, and develop differentiated products and services; and who proactively lead in times of uncertainty. Increasingly, the industry is developing internal successors to fill pivotal, mission critical roles, while identifying and investing in the next generation of leaders.
