As part of the Executive Committee, he will work with other committee members to support the AIA’s strong code of ethics and provide guidance and leadership for its defense industry membership.
“We’re pleased to welcome Mark to serve on AIA’s Executive Committee,” said AIA President and CEO Eric Fanning. “He’ll bring a unique and valuable perspective to AIA’s leadership, and we’re looking forward to working with him in the coming years.”
“I am honored to receive this appointment to the Executive Committee of the AIA,” Aslett responded. “Leveraging my experience as the leader of an agile commercial technology company pioneering a next-generation business model for the defense industry, I look forward to working with my fellow Committee members in support of AIA’s mission to deliver strength, security and prosperity to the American aerospace and defense infrastructure and industrial base.”

The organization advocates for its member companies within the U.S. government, in addition to promoting the adoption of the latest technologies for such market areas as aerospace, defense, and commercial aviation and avionics.
