Turbopower, an MRO service provider for gas turbine engines, APUs and component parts based in Opa-Locka, Florida, has appointed Scott Starrett as its newest board member. The appointment follows Turbopower's acquisition by Battle Investment Group and Capricorn Holdings in June 2021.
“We are excited to welcome Scott to our board of directors,” says Vlad Miskovic, president of Turbopower. “Scott is an accomplished industry veteran with an impressive track record of leading and growing aerospace companies, and we are delighted to welcome him to our board. His leadership and operational experience will be invaluable at this stage of Turbopower's growth as we work to add new customers and capabilities and continue to provide world-class service. I look forward to working alongside him and our other board members to accelerate Turbopower's continued expansion and success.”
Most recently, Starrett served as president of StandardAero's military and energy business unit, where he quadrupled revenue between 2016 and 2020. Prior to joining StandardAero, Starrett served as president of Sikorsky Aircraft's military systems business unit, which included key product lines such as the Blackhawk, Naval Hawk and Presidential Helicopter platforms. Starrett began his career at Honeywell, where he held numerous executive-level positions across its aerospace and space portfolio.
“I am excited for the opportunity to join Turbopower's board of directors and work with the management team as the company continues its growth as a leader in MRO services,” said Starrett. “Vlad is aggressively positioning Turbopower to capture significant growth opportunities, both organic and acquisitive, and I am thrilled to partner with Turbopower, Battle Investment Group and Capricorn Holdings.”
