President & CEO
Avion Solutions, Inc.
Q: Tell us about Avion Solutions.
Avion Solutions is a 100% Employee-Owned engineering and logistics services company headquartered in Huntsville, AL. We provide expertise in aerospace engineering, airworthiness, logistics, program management, and model-based systems engineering to multiple DoD customers.
Q: Avion Solutions is a repeat winner for Best Places to Work®. What have you learned from the process?
The Best Places to Work® competition provides a way for the Avion management team to measure our performance in the eyes of our Employee-Owners. Every year we are able to look at feedback from the Best Places to Work® survey and see issues that resonate with our employee-owners, as well as areas where we can improve.
Q: What do you like most about the Huntsville community?
While Huntsville continues to grow, one of the things I like most about our city is that it continues to feel like a “small town” community. Companies work together toward the common goals of supporting the Warfighter and supporting our local community. Businesses provide significant support, both financial and through volunteer efforts, to local nonprofits who are supporting families living in the margins. And all of this is enabled through the strong leadership of the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce and other great organizations like Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville.
Q: What have you gained from being a HREGI Investor?
Avion has been a part of the Huntsville/Madison County community for over 25 years, and we believe that it is our responsibility to promote the continued economic empowerment of the community. Being a HREGI investor supports that objective by allowing us to get connected with other businesses in the area and help create an environment that allows businesses to grow and thrive.
