Nordam CEO Meredith Siegfried announced the addition of Mike Bunney as senior vice president, support services, and the promotion of Dave Whitten to senior vice president, strategy and marketing.

“As we expand our footprint in the global aerospace market, we must think and operate strategically, and we must have a dynamic base of support services to allow us to do that,” Siegfried said.


“These two new additions to our executive team have the proven backgrounds and expertise to allow us to achieve those objectives.”


Bunney (on the left on the picture) is responsible for the aerospace firm’s supply chain, information technology and human resources departments. His aviation career has spanned 34 years in a variety of positions with McDonnell Douglas and Boeing, most recently as director of global logistics for Boeing in Seattle.


He joins Nordam from the City of Tulsa, where he served as chief economic officer.


Bunney earned a juris doctor from the University of Tulsa, and a bachelor of arts from the University of Oklahoma at Norman, Okla.



In his new position, Whitten (on the right) will identify, evaluate and pursue new deals and acquisitions. He has led global marketing for Nordam since 2005, and previously spent nine years with Goodrich in aerospace marketing, sales, strategy and demand management.


Whitten holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, and a master of business administration from Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh.


Headquartered in Tulsa, and employing more than 2,000 people across nine facilities on three continents, Nordam is one of the world’s largest independently owned aerospace companies.


The firm designs, certifies and manufactures integrated propulsion systems, nacelles and thrust reversers for business jets;  builds composite aircraft structures, interior shells, custom cabinetry and radomes; and manufactures aircraft transparencies, such as cabin windows, wing-tip lenses and simulator screens.


Nordam also is a major third-party provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul services to the military, commercial airline and air freight markets.
