Thomas (Tom) Thompson
Tom was introduced to aviation at 14 years-old and was hooked by Skydrol and Avgas since. Through his passion for the industry, and nearly four-decades later, Tom is now leading the ST Engineering Aerospace - Volant Interiors team in emphasizing a “Customer 1st” business model that focuses on Customers’ needs and requirements while delivering exceptional value and quality on-time, every time. Tom brings his vast OEM executive and Customer experience in managing domestic/international P&L to drive controlled growth while developing and nurturing Customer and Supplier relationships. Tom’s extensive experience in developing a hand-picked global team and fostering a people-focused organization allows his team to focus on providing exceptional Customer Service.Tom began his career in aviation at a Fixed-Based Operator and after catching the “aviation bug”, went on to put himself through college to gain his Electrical Engineering Degree. Tom’s next stop was as a flight controls design electrical/mechanical engineer at Boeing where he spent over 30 years in ever increasing technical, leadership and executive roles. With nearly 18 of those years on assignment in Asia, Tom was hands-on working directly beside Customers, Suppliers and MRO mechanics and licensed engineers learning their largest pain points and challenges in keeping commercial aircraft flying. After retiring from Boeing, Tom brought his energy and passion to ST Engineering Aerospace to reinvent the culture at VT Volant to drive Customer Satisfaction.
