David Schellenberg, Cascade Aerospace’s president and CEO, has been named the chairman of the board for the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada.

That association is a national advocacy organization that promotes Canadian competitiveness in the global aerospace industry.  Schellenberg was voted in by AIAC members at the first ever Canadian Aerospace Summit in Ottawa recently. Schellenberg had previously served as vice-chairman and chaired the association’s defence committee.

“It is a huge honour for me to serve in this capacity, and I look forward to working with the other board members and staff to accomplish as much as we can in 2012,” he said in a press release.

“Our main task will be to provide the Canadian government with realistic and effective recommendations that will enable Canada’s aerospace industry to be competitive and continue to grow – in the near term and far into the future.  There exists today a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to shape the future of our important sector – if we position ourselves to take full advantage of the outstanding opportunities in the global aerospace market.”

Schellenberg is also the president and CEO of Conair Group, Cascade Aerospace’s parent company.
