ARSA at MRO Americas – MacLeod on Buying, Selling

If you’re reading this at Aviation Week’s 2016 MRO Americas Convention in Dallas, Texas, block off your schedule for Wednesday, April 6 from 10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. During that time, ARSA’s Executive Director Sarah MacLeod will lead a discussion on buying or selling a repair station.

Continuing their discussion from ARSA’s 2016 Annual Repair Symposium, MacLeod will once again join Al Givray of Davis, Graham & Stubbs and Seabury Group’s Brian Karpiel to explore the nuances of buying or selling an aviation maintenance operation. The session will be an open discussion on the who, what, where, when, how and why of selling an MRO business. It includes a series of “do’s and don’ts” that are useful for good business management even at organizations where a sale (or purchase) is not on the immediate horizon.

The Sights at MRO Americas – ARSA and the AMC

Aviation Week’s 2016 MRO Americas Convention will run from April 5-7 at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.

Throughout the convention, AMC competitors will participate in a series of hands-on challenges, testing their skill and mettle against competitors from AMT schools, repair stations, airlines and military units. The competition is an opportunity for today’s and tomorrow’s skilled aviation professionals to match their abilities against their peers. It also provides a stage to highlight the knowledge, expertise and integrity that is the foundation of today’s aviation maintenance workforce.

Both the association and its management firm, Obadal, Filler, MacLeod & Klein, P.L.C., have both invested resources in the success of AMC and its participants. Not only as event sponsors, but as a technical resource for the competition’s legal and organizational needs, the experts that support ARSA members every day have invested heavily in the industry’s most valuable resource – its people.
