hange and innovation are constant in the aviation, aerospace and defence markets. Stakeholders are increasing their demands for more efficient and effective aircrafts. Companies are also constantly altering and improving business models to find the most cost-effective ways of transporting people and goods.

There is also growth in new areas of technology, as governments and institutions react to asymmetrical threats to national security. This is driven by strategic geographic changes in faster growing regions such as Asia and the Middle East.

In response to this high level of growth and instability within the sector, businesses are prioritizing leaders who primarily have strong international experience. Talented individuals who can innovate, collaborate, and develop novel products and services.

In line with this, the industry is increasingly developing internal successors to fill pivotal, mission-critical roles, whilst also identifying and investing in the next generation of leaders.
