ARLINGTON, VA – CAES, a leading provider of mission-critical electronics for aerospace and defense, is excited to announce that the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) has elected CAES President and CEO Mike Kahn to its Board of Governors Executive Committee.

“It’s an honor to be named to this distinguished group of leaders in aerospace and defense,” said CAES President and CEO Mike Kahn. “I look forward to serving on the Executive Committee and helping shape solutions for our industry that foster stronger collaboration across our many stakeholders, continued innovation and growth." 

AIA represents more than 320 manufacturers and suppliers across every sector and tier of the aerospace and defense industry. AIA is led by an Executive Committee that meets frequently to direct its policy guidance through the involvement of CEO-level officers of the country’s major aerospace companies. The government frequently seeks advice from AIA on issues, and AIA provides a forum for government and industry representatives to exchange views and resolve problems on non-competitive matters related to the aerospace and defense industry.

As an Executive Committee member, Kahn will be responsible for acting as a visionary for the organization, ensuring adherence to AIA’s mission, expanding programs and services for membership, and much more. Executive Committee members are selected based on their familiarity with the industry, unique skills and expertise, and management level within their company. Members serve a two-year term.
