Jeff Standerski, a 25-year veteran at Rockwell Collins (NYSE: COL) and a former vice president and general manager, has been appointed to lead the aviation technology maker’s newly-formed information management services business that is partly comprised of ARINC, which Rockwell Collins purchased for $1.2 billion last year.
The new business also contains the company’s flight information solutions business and the Ascent product and service family, Rockwell Collins said Tuesday.
“In recent years there’s been a dramatic increase in demand by airlines and business aircraft operators, as well as the broader transportation and security industries, for the types of network and connectivity services ARINC provides, ” Standerski said.
Standerski’s career at Rockwell Collins includes service as VP and GM of business and regional systems, VP and GM of air transport systems and VP of strategy development for commercial systems.
He has also held roles in the company’s government systems business.
