AEVEX Aerospace, a full-spectrum airborne intelligence solutions company, today announced the appointment of Jamon Osborne to the role of vice president of Business Development and Strategy. With 24 years in the Military, Osborne will leverage his unique combination of strategic vision, influential leadership, operational expertise, and business acumen to execute the company’s business development efforts across its three separate business units – Intelligence Solutions, Flight Operations and Engineering & Technology.
“At AEVEX we take a long-term view of our customer relationships and establish strong partnerships with both the U.S. Government and prime contractors,” said Osborne. “It’s interesting and exciting for me to call upon my military background to support our existing and future customers who are primarily centered on supporting the U.S. Special Operations community and broader U.S. DoD customers and their foreign partners.”
Prior to AEVEX, Osborne served as the Senior Intelligence Officer for the U.S. Army Special Operations Aviation command where he managed the intelligence and security support to an organization composed of 4,200 personnel and 204 specially modified helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft and unmanned aerial systems. Jamon also supported many other ISR and intelligence efforts with a variety of Special Operations units throughout his military career with 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), Special Operations Command – Africa (SOCAF), and U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC).
“The culture we’ve created at AEVEX attracts and retains the very best in the aerospace industry and Jamon is no exception,” said Dan Talati, chief strategy officer of AEVEX. “Jamon’s military experience, combined with his knowledge and passion for partnering with our customers to rapidly identify, develop, and deliver tailored solutions for airborne intelligence requirements make him a perfect fit for AEVEX. We are lucky to have him on our team.”
Osborne received his U.S. Army commission and a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He also holds a Master of Business Administration from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and a Master of Strategic Security Studies from the National Defense University’s College of International Security Affairs.
