NORDAM’s Siegfried Becomes ARSA President

On Oct. 22, ARSA’s board of directors elected Terrell Siegfried to the association’s senior volunteer leadership position. Siegfried is assistant general counsel and corporate secretary for the NORDAM Group LLC, which has been an involved ARSA member since the association’s founding in 1984. Beginning his fourth year on the board, Siegfried enters his first term as ARSA president.

Siegfried earned his law degree from the University of Notre Dame after graduating with a business degree from the University of Tulsa, where he played football on scholarship and was elected by his teammates as a captain of the team his senior year. He worked in private practice as a corporate attorney with Hall Estill before returning to NORDAM in 2012 as senior legal counsel, assuming his current role in 2016. Through more than 50 years of operation, his family has grown the company into a major industry player, committed to its community and dedicated to its people – many employees have logged decades of service and brought their own children into the business. As ARSA’s new president, Siegfried will bring that same commitment to the broader aviation community.

“The board and the association’s team are delighted that Terrell is following family tradition in supporting the international civil aviation maintenance community as the President of ARSA,” Executive Director Sarah MacLeod said. “It has been rewarding to work with NORDAM’s leadership over the years as it grew and expanded just like the association.”

ARSA’s board represents a broad range of international maintenance interests. Directors are elected to represent specific industry segments to ensure attention to issues that matter across the entire regulatory chain. Siegfried first joined the board in 2017, continuing the long tradition of NORDAM’s representation among the association’s volunteer leaders and ushering in a period of transition during which the body’s most-experienced members have been joined by new faces. Siegfried’s predecessor Gary Fortner will remain on the board, continuing his own service that began in 2001.

“As my personal involvement with ARSA has grown, I’ve seen first-hand how valuable the association is for NORDAM and this industry as a whole,” Siegfried said. “The association has successfully served my company for almost 40 years, so I will be especially committed to showing off that work and demonstrating how supporting ARSA provides a continual return on investment for both large and small MRO’s, both domestically and internationally.”

The Oct. 22 meeting followed a day of roundtable discussions hosted by ARSA for both allied industry associations and FAA executive leadership. While returning to its practice of engaging the aviation community, the board continued its recent work of welcoming new members. Chromalloy Director of Airworthiness John Riggs became the newest member, representing the engine market in the seat previously held by Hugh McElroy of Signature Aviation, PLC.

Josh Krotec, senior vice president for First Aviation Services, Inc., was elected to serve as ARSA vice president. Scott Jacob, Columbia Helicopters director of quality, became the association’s treasurer. The two individuals round out an executive committee that, with Siegfried, is composed of three of the board’s four most-recently elected members. A new director will join the body during the 2022 program year to fill the gap left by the October passing of former President Gary Hudnall.

Siegfried has begun planning for his leadership role and is exploring opportunities for public engagement on the association’s behalf. Among other possible events, ARSA members will be able to meet and visit with him during the 2022 Annual Conference; which will build on pandemic lessons by returning to in-person engagement with livestream options for participants to “bring the Conference home” to their facilities.
