Who he is: As CEO, president, and owner of Midwest ATC, based in Overland Park, Kan., he oversees operations for this global aviation company, which provides air traffic control services such as airfield management, training, equipment maintenance, and weather observation and forecasting. “We pride ourselves on being an operator of air traffic control and related facilities, not just a staffing firm.”

Scope of work: His company serves nearly 100 U.S. airports, as well as airports in international locales including Canada, Cuba, the Middle East, and Southwest Asia.

Global matters: Midwest also aids government agencies such as the U.S. Department of Defense, the Federal Aviation Administration, and NATO.

Going south: Last March, the company added Antarctica to its reach, providing air traffic control services for the National Science Foundation’s polar programs, under a contract with the Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command. “Although we work in many unique locations around the world, our standardized approach to service delivery maximizes our ability to ensure safety throughout our global system.”
