Titterington takes on avionics production management at Duncan
For 16 years US Marine Corps veteran Jesse Titterington has taken on greater responsibilities within Duncan. As production manager of avionics install at Provo, Utah, he will grow the avionics teams.
Jesse Titterington is now the production manager of avionics install with Duncan Aviation's full-service MRO facility in Provo, Utah.

Long-time Duncan Aviation team member Jesse Titterington has accepted the position of production manager of avionics install at the company's full-service facility in Provo, Utah. Titterington joined the Duncan team in 2006 on the avionics line at the company's facility in Lincoln, Nebraska. He's steadily assumed more responsibilities and learned more aspects of the company over the last 16 years.

“With his many years of experience throughout the Duncan Aviation enterprise, we're confident that Jesse will help grow our avionics teams as we meet the challenges of our increasing avionics business,” says vice president of aircraft services Cobi Lane. “Jesse's interpersonal skills make him the perfect fit to build new and strengthen existing relationships with our customers here in Provo as well.”

After high school, Titterington joined the US Marine Corps where he worked on the avionics for extended-range tankers, the KC-130s.

“My experience working on those aircraft in the Marines was the hook,” he says. “While in the Marines, I went to A School to learn basic electronics in Memphis, Tennessee, and I learned about the specific airframe, the KC130s, while in C School in Cherry Point, North Carolina.”

Upon returning to Lincoln, Titterington took classes at the University of Nebraska Lincoln toward an electrical engineering degree, and he applied for a position on the avionics line at Duncan Aviation. Hired in April 2006, he spent more than four years learning all he could and then transferred to the satellite shop in Teterboro, New Jersey, where he found he had responsibility for a project from input through delivery.

“I sold the projects, did the work, signed off and delivered the aircraft,” he continues. “The entire time, I was in touch with the customer, so in addition to developing technical skills, I honed my communication skills too.”

After 10 years at the Teterboro satellite, he was asked to join the avionics install team at Duncan Aviation's newest full-service facility in Provo, Utah. After nearly two years there, Titterington assumed his new role as manager of avionics install on Valentine's Day, which is fitting because he loves what he's doing.

“This is exactly where I want to be, and I really love being a part of the everyday decisions, helping the teams with the big projects we have going on here in Provo,” he adds. “There's great opportunity in Provo to build relationships with new customers and help the newer team members grow and learn the Duncan Aviation way."
