Aviation Partners has appointed Gary Dunn to the position of president, effective immediately . Dunn has served the company for more than two decades. He has been interim president since the unexpected passing on March 30, of company founder and aviation legend Joe Clark.
Dunn has close to 30 years’ experience in aviation maintenance, engineering, product support, sales and marketing. A childhood fascination with all things flight related led Dunn to study aeronautical engineering. During an apprenticeship at London Luton Airport-based Monarch Aircraft Engineering, he provided MRO support to a mixed fleet of Boeing and Airbus aircraft. A move to Seattle in his early 20s led to being hired in 1996 by Aviation Partners’ director of engineering. He joined Joe Clark’s dream team of mostly former, senior Boeing engineers.Email Post to a Friend
