06 Jan ConexSmart Welcomes USAF Program Manager to Team
ConexSmart Aerospace and Defense announces the addition of Mr. Ian Young to their executive team. Ian will serve as Vice President of Programs, leading ConexSmart Program Management and Business Development efforts. Mr. Young is well known within the Air Force and SOCOM community with a longstanding and distinguished career in Special Operations Programs, Defense Acquisition, Program Management and Engineering.
With an M.S. in Aeronautics from Embry-Riddle University and Level II Certification from the Defense Acquisition University, Mr. Young will prove to be a valuable asset to the ConexSmart Team. “We have been fortunate enough to work with and know Ian and his family for many years, and the timing of his ability to take this opportunity with ConexSmart and the trajectory of our company couldn’t be better,” adds Keith Vierela, ConexSmart CEO.
“Joining the ConexSmart team at this time in my career is really exciting. I love the vision, culture, and attitude of the entire organization. The sky is the limit for us and it is great to return to building partner relationships with our Defense Contractor customers and delivering needed products and technology to the Warfighter,” said Young.
The addition of Mr. Young is ideal because of the deep experience and outstanding reputation he brings to the ConexSmart team, as well as his ability to leverage his large network of decision makers and influencers within the company’s target markets as the company looks to continue to expand its customer portfolio.
