New Business Unit Structure Focuses on Customer Service, Technology and Solutions
The AEgis Technologies Group has reorganized into two Business Units, Defense Services and Technology Solutions, to better support its customers and execute the company’s strategic plan for growth.
“Our company continues to successfully pursue its vision for the future despite changes in government direction, budget cycles and the ups and downs of the economy,” said Steve Hill, President and CEO of AEgis Technologies. “By focusing our team on the unique challenges of our customers and targeting our expertise on their specific problems, our internal organization will be better aligned to offer the superior level of service and support our customers demand. We expect the realignment to accelerate our diversification of solutions within Aerospace, Defense, Training, Simulation, Nanotechnology and additional commercial markets.”
Effective immediately, Lance Cooper will lead the Defense Services Business Unit as Executive Vice-President and David King will lead the Technology Solutions Business Unit, also as Executive Vice- President. Cooper, a 25-year veteran of the Aerospace/Defense industry, has contributed substantially to the growth of the company over his nine years with AEgis. King brings 25 years of experience in modeling and simulation, and has led the fastest growing group over the last seven years as the AEgis Vice-President of Simulation Development.
Hill further commented, “This organizational change allows us to expedite the development of the systems and processes unique to Services and Products businesses, and capitalize on the rare talent and strengths of the people in these groups. Our Business Units, and their leadership, will continue to ensure our commitment to the execution of programs and product development with integrity and excellence while delivering the highest quality, cost effective solutions to our customers.”
Additional promotions have been made to support the expansion of the Technology Solutions Business Unit. Del Beilstein, a former Army Aviation officer and business development director, has been promoted to Vice-President for Business Development. Additionally, Mark McDaniel, a 30+ year Aerospace/Defense operations veteran, has been promoted to Vice-President of the Simulation Development Group.
