Duncan Aviation has announced that David Sturdy has joined the company’s recruitment team and will take on the responsibility for generating interest in the industry and the company, as he works from the Battle Creek, Michigan, facility.
Sturdy joins the Duncan Aviation team as the business aviation industry attempts to meet the challenges of finding qualified technicians as experienced technicians reach retirement age.
As with many industries, the aviation industry has realized that its long-time technicians are leaving big shoes to fill, and younger people in the workforce aren’t fully aware of the many career opportunities available in business aviation.
“We’re very excited to have David join the team,” says Human Resources Supervisor Jennifer Monroe.
“He brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise that will continue to drive our recruiting efforts forward as we seek to add more top talent to the Duncan Aviation team.”
“When I worked as a recruiter, I focused for several years on finding qualified technicians, and when I worked as an account manager, I helped various companies in Southwestern Michigan with their Engineering needs, including Duncan Aviation,” says Sturdy.
“I worked with Michael Hill, enterprise director of engineering, to find talented, highly qualified engineers. I’m excited to do the same for the entire company now.”
