SEATTLE, Washington (February 11, 2016) Yesterday, Paul Michaels, GMN Aerospace Director, received the 2016 Aerospace Executive of the Year Award by the Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance (PNAA) at their 15th Annual Aerospace Manufacturing Conference. Formed in 2001, the PNAA is a group devoted to advancing the Aerospace industry in the Pacific Northwest region.
Every year, the PNAA presents four Excellence Awards: Aerospace Executive of the Year Award, Company of the Year Award, Chairman’s Award, and Inspire Award. The Aerospace Executive of the Year Award recognizes an executive from an Aerospace company in the Pacific Northwest who is a visionary committed to continual growth and innovation in the Aerospace industry.
Michaels has effectively supported increased rate and customer cost down initiatives throughout his career. The GMN Aerospace team achieved quality and delivery ratings of over 99%, and has experienced a 25% increase in sales over the past five years.
Over the past ten years, Michaels’ team has achieved a 0% employee turnover rate. The key to his success is the trust and collaboration that is built within his team’s foundation. He has developed a culture that is extremely customer focused, but also provides an internal support system that binds members together.
“I feel so incredibly honored to receive this recognition from PNAA. This award would not be possible without the support of the GMN Aerospace Team and the dedication they bring to work every day,” expressed Michaels. “I see my role as communicating the vision, making sure they have the resources they need, and getting out of their way to let them succeed. I love knowing I can trust our team, and giving them the support and freedom they need to be creative and productive in reaching our goals. Sincere thanks to everyone at PNAA for this amazing award!”
