AIA names new president and CEO

The Aerospace Industries Association has named David Melcher as its president and CEO, effective June 8. Most recently Melcher was CEO and president of Exeli, where he served four years as a member of AIA’s Executive and Finance Committees.

AIA chairman and president and CEO-GE Aviation David Joyce called Melcher “an exceptional leader who, with his balance of corporate and military experience, brings an outstanding record of executive achievement to AIA.” He added, “With Dave’s guidance, AIA will continue to champion the aerospace and defense industry and its ability to advance innovation in civil aviation, space and defense.”

Melcher said, “Our nation currently faces a number of critical global challenges and we must have a strong, vibrant aerospace and defense industry to keep our men and women in uniform safe and successful on the battlefield, ensure that more than two million airline passengers travel safely and efficiently every day, and enable humankind to explore the frontiers of space.”
