Duncan Aviation takes great pleasure in welcoming Phil Suglia as vice president of modifications and completions at the company's full-service facility in Provo, Utah. In this new role, Suglia will be responsible for the interior, avionics installation and avionics line teams, in addition to serving on the company's senior management team.

Suglia was previously located at Battle Creek, Michigan where he was responsible for regional managers located throughout the world. Hired as a line services representative in February 2000, he has spent the last nearly 23 years of his career managing various teams and building a culture of quality and trust among Duncan Aviation team members and clients in order to deliver the highest level of customer service and safety in the industry.

“As my own career has grown at Duncan Aviation, I've focused on encouraging team members to engage in both critical and creative thinking in order to resolve issues, and I've enjoyed supporting their personal and professional growth,” says Suglia. “I'm looking forward to promoting and building the company culture among our newer team members here at the Provo facility. We also have a great opportunity to strengthen relationships among the team members, focusing on the core values that have made the company so great, and also continuing to build its reputation and customer base in the area and in the western United States.”

After joining Duncan Aviation's line services department, Suglia completed his bachelor of business administration-advertising at Western Michigan University in 2003. He managed the FBO line services in Battle Creek and Kalamazoo for several years before taking on the role of sales manager at the Battle Creek location in 2009.

“Phil strongly believes in promoting teamwork, and one of the things he has enjoyed most about his more than two decades at Duncan Aviation is the relationships he's built with team members, vendors and customers,” says executive VP and COO Chad Doehring. “I am confident that our interior and avionics teams will flourish under Phil's capable leadership, and I know our customers will welcome his knowledge and experience.”

In his spare time, Suglia has served on various community and industry boards, including the Greater Kalamazoo/Battle Creek United Way Cabinet, as the committee chair of the NBAA workforce development subcommittee, on the NBAA maintenance committee, and on both the Collins Aerospace and Gogo Business dealer advisory boards.
