AIA hires former House Appropriations staffer as VP

 The Aerospace Industries Association has hired a new vice president of acquisition policy from the House Appropriations Committee support staff.

William Greenwalt previously served as the deputy director for the Surveys and Investigations staff, which provides support for the committee's oversight activities. His previous government procurement experience includes serving as an advisor for the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, and as a professional staff member for the Senate Armed Services and Senate Governmental Affairs Committees. He also worked at Lockheed Martin as director of federal acquisition policy from 2009 to 2011.

"Bill has tremendous experience in both government and industry,” said AIA President and CEO Marion C. Blakey. “At a time when our industry is facing a major transition, Bill will be instrumental in helping us navigate some tough challenges."

AIA represents manufacturers and suppliers of civil, military and business aircraft, equipment, services and information technology.
