DEC & Partner – AZ Chapter of Aerospace & Defense Forum

Arizona District Export Council Members were in the spotlight at the “Grow your A&D Business in Arizona and Beyond” Discussion Panel hosted by the Arizona Chapter of the Aerospace and Defense Forum. Chaired by our own DEC member Moses Koyabe, this forum is a global aerospace and defense leadership community that provides themed networking opportunities.

Moderated by Steve Zylstra, the Panel Discussion held at the National Bank of Arizona campus in Phoenix brought together industry leaders, financial experts and local and state professionals. In an open dialogue, the panelists that included Kevin O’Shea (ACA) and Fernando Jimenez (USCS) deliberated the issues facing A&D manufacturers and service providers to present possible strategies to the often small and medium sized enterprises on how to build, grow and market their businesses locally, nationally and internationally.

The diverse and dynamic group of speakers and panelists provided relevant insight, as well as, actionable and practical tools that have worked with other companies and organizations. 

Preceding the meeting that assembled 28 participants was a networking breakfast where quests were treated to typical Dutch Letter pastries sponsored by Lean Technologies headquartered in Pella, IA.
