Corn steps up to regional sale role at Duncan
Duncan Aviation has elevated Susie Corn to fill the position of regional sales manager for the south central United States.
Susie Corn can't wait to get her teeth into sales for Duncan.

Duncan Aviation has appointed Susie Corn as regional sales manager for the south central United States, which includes Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. Corn takes over after Rick Randall, a 20-year regional sales manager for Duncan who retired at the end of July.

Corn joined Duncan Aviation three years ago as its senior sales representative for engine sales and services. Combined with her previous years of aviation experience, Corn brings more than 20 years of aircraft knowledge and experience to her new position.

“We're so pleased to have Susie on our team. Of course, her past experience coupled with her in-depth knowledge of the engine business is valuable, but it's really her desire to see customers and teammates be successful that I'm most excited about,” says manager of sales Phil Suglia. “Susie brings empathy to the table, and when you're in a role where people depend on you to help them, that is really significant.”

Three years ago, when Corn joined Duncan Aviation, she was looking forward to a challenge, although she initially wondered about learning a new position while navigating a company that seemed as big as Duncan Aviation.

“Although Duncan Aviation seemed big at the time, after a few short years here I can say that the company has a small, family feel to it,” says Corn. “The leadership, culture, and the people really make Duncan Aviation an awesome place to work and a truly special place in the aviation industry. I believe a willingness to help runs through the very veins of the company. We are all one, and we are all here for our customers and for one another.”

“Because of my previous 16 years of sales experience prior to coming to Duncan Aviation, I have the privilege of knowing many of the folks in this region quite well. I think that'll make the transition to my new position a little easier,” says Corn. “In my new position, I'll be touting Duncan Aviation's range of services in airframe, interior, paint, and avionics, in addition to engines.”
