A common theme among Broadwing Aviation employees is the vast amount of aviation industry experience they have, and Patrick Hubbard is no different. “Growing up with the Boeing Renton plant in our backyard, I was fascinated with commercial airplanes, so my career path was paved at an early age,” explains Patrick.
With 35 years in the industry, he started out as a machinist at Heath Tecna Aerospace learning how to make machines ready for operation. Patrick took that logistical knowledge to Boeing, where he worked in business development for 15 years, until its merger with McDonnell Douglas. “Working with an all-Boeing product line has given me an advantage to develop creative solutions to the most challenging sourcing requirements for my Boeing customers.”
After Boeing, Patrick advanced into the role of Director of Sales and Marketing at Aero Controls and even started his own venture until finding himself at Broadwing Aviation as a part of what he calls a “dynamic team.”
