Succeeding Robby Harless, who retires in June 2020, Naveed Aziz will serve as vice president and general manager of Gulfstream Aerospace’s facility in Dallas, Texas. As such, Aziz will oversee Gulfstream G280 completions and service centre operations.
“Naveed has been a valuable asset to our next generation of aircraft,” said Greg Collett, senior vice president of manufacturing and completions. “In his current role as director of completions research and development, he led development and certification of the award-winning Gulfstream G500 and Gulfstream G600 interior and oversaw development of the all-new Gulfstream G700 interior, including the G700 cabin mock-up. We look forward to his continued success in Dallas.”
Aziz began his career at Gulfstream in 1996 as an engineering co-op, designing avionics and electrical systems for the Gulfstream GIV and Gulfstream GV. He has held several positions within the company and was most recently promoted to director of completions research and development in 2012. In this role, Aziz was responsible for designing, engineering, testing and certifying interior elements and cabin systems for new products.
Aziz earned his Master of Business Administration and his bachelor’s degree in electrical and electronics engineering from Mercer University.
