A good fit is important to Tony Amato. In fact, he believes not all business relationships are for the best. “If it doesn’t work for both the customer and for Broadwing Aviation,” he explains, “that’s OK.”
Tony’s career in aviation spans the decades, so he’s seen a thing or two: a gambit of new decisions, programs and processes. That’s why, when he’s researching new partnerships with fleet specs and support requirements, he knows exactly who will benefit from a long-term relationship. “For me, it always comes down to one thing: I am all about doing the right, honest thing.”
To better support this industry’s dependence on production, inventory and cost efficiencies, Tony supplemented his B.S. in Business Administration by receiving his CPIM (Certified Production and Inventory Management) certification through APICS (American Production & Inventory and Control Society), and a Six Sigma Green Belt certification.
