Supersonic jet developer recruits senior vice president for operations

Steve Berroth has joined Aerion’s leadership team as senior vice president for operations, as the company continues in the development of the AS2 supersonic business jet.

“Steve is an exceptional leader with a proven track record in the development, flight test and production of complex aircraft programs,” said Tom Vice, president at Aerion.

“We are hiring ingenious pioneers, passionate about innovation, and disciplined in execution. Our vision is to completely change global mobility through a sustainable supersonic future and allow our customers to spend more of their most precious resource, time, doing the things that are important to them. Steve will be a great addition to our team to enable this future.”

Berroth joins Aerion from Triumph Aerospace where he served as vice president of metallic and composite components programs and operations. In that role, he led six site presidents with more than 3,000 employees in operating companies around the globe.

Prior to Triumph, Berroth worked at Northrop Grumman for 31 years in various leadership positions, including director of production operations and program manager for numerous advanced aircraft and rotorcraft programs. He also led flight test operations for several aircraft programs.

“It’s always tremendously gratifying to be part of a first flight and an aircraft’s successful entry into service,” said Berroth. “But to help launch a supersonic renaissance is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Aerion has assembled some of the greatest aircraft design talent in the industry, and now we will build an outstanding team to take that design from the computer to the shop floor and into the air.”

Berroth holds a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering from Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, Massachusetts. He is also a graduate of the Defense Acquisition University Program at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, and the University of Michigan’s Executive Program at the Ross School of Business. He is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
