Western Aircraft, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced today that it has hired Tonya Wood to fill the position of Interiors Manager.
In her new role, Ms. Wood oversees the removal, repair, modification, refurbishment and reinstallation of aircraft interiors according to customer specifications.
Ms. Wood has a demonstrated successful history in the aviation and aerospace industry. She’s skilled in customer service, strategic planning, LEAN principles, leadership and project management.
Immediately prior to joining Western Aircraft, she held varying positions with Gulfstream Aerospace, including Senior Pricing Analyst and most recently Principal Designer, where she created and presented custom interior schemes that included veneer, carpet, plating, countertops, cabinetry, soft goods and seat styling for private and commercial use jets.
