Operations Director

Operations Director

We are seeking an operations executive to head our Demand Fulfillment process, joining our other process owners to lead the company. In this capacity, you will help maintain our mission-driven culture, collaborate on the establishment and enforcement of company policies, and oversee performance of the operations processes.

Position Summary:

You will lead a diverse team assigned to produce a variety of machined and electronic assemblies used in aircraft cabins and will be responsible for the leadership, direction, and performance of all core operations processes, including planning, supply chain management, inspection, manufacturing, and logistics.  In this capacity you will be accountable for product quality, on-time delivery performance, compliance with all customer and regulatory requirements, and product gross margins.

Our management system is based on the philosophy of a self-directed workforce, guided by a small group of aligned leaders, with no managers or supervisors.  We are a mission-driven organization structured by process, not department, where purpose and team are prioritized over authority and title.  To join our team, you must be an outstanding leader, capable of contextualizing and teaching, not simply executing.  This position also requires the ability to analyze process performance, identify causes of underperformance, and implement effective corrective action, as required.

Desired Results:

  • An efficient planning system that fully utilizes operating system capabilities
  • Optimized inventory levels aligned with forecasted demand
  • A manufacturing performance that meets company goals
  • A supplier base capable of supporting our zero defects and 100% on-time delivery objectives
  • Products manufactured without defects, conforming to all customer and regulatory requirements, including AS9100.
  • A continually evolving operations process

Qualifications and Critical Skills:

  • Bachelor’s degree with 10 years of relevant operational experience
  • Strong knowledge and understanding of operations processes, particularly supply chain management, planning, and manufacturing
  • Experience with process analysis and systems management
  • Familiarity with AS9100 standards
  • Demonstrated capability to improve others by teaching
  • A talent for informing others by contextualizing circumstances and aligning purpose
  • The ability to inspire through words and actions
