STG Aerospace has promoted Grant Bennett to the role of CEO, tasked with leading the company’s recovery and growth strategy as it continues to develop its business to meet existing and new market demands.
Bennett has 30 years’ experience in the manufacturing industry, serving such diverse markets as consumer electronics, defence, medical, automotive, and military & commercial aerospace. He joined STG Aerospace in June 2017 as chief operating officer, with a brief to lead the engineering, quality, supply chain and manufacturing operations organisation.
Beginning 1 January 2021, Grant has moved to the position of chief executive officer for STG Aerospace. Commenting on his appointment Grant Bennett said: “2020 has been a year of more change at ST:, some planned for, but much of it out of necessity as we wrestled to respond quickly whilst the world began to buckle under the pandemic. I am absolutely certain that our simple approach of ‘keep all our people safe and maintain business continuity’ and then doing everything we could to ensure those two things, meant we were able to keep our UK and US sites operational throughout the year and achieve on-time supply to all our customers.
“Through it all STG Aerospace has remained a stable and secure organisation. A business that will remain industry leaders and trusted partners to all our customers and suppliers for many, many years to come,” he added.
