The aerospace and defense industry, a key business sector for California, faces immediate spending cuts mandated by sequestration, as well as the potential for longer-term reductions in the nation’s defense budget. This creates a significant challenge for the many companies that provide specialized products and services to the defense sector.
Despite this difficult business environment, many aerospace and defense companies are experiencing record results. How are they managing to succeed in the face of these hurdles, and what can other businesses learn from their continuing strong performance?
Come hear the answers at the May 1st meeting of ACG 101, when a panel of C-suite aerospace and defense executives will explore how local companies are successfully navigating and thriving in today's landscape.
