Malissa Nesmith Joins Lee Aerospace, Inc.

Change is not always easy, but it can be good.  That is the case for Malissa Nesmith, after 14 years with GlobalParts.aero.  Malissa has joined the team at Lee Aerospace, Inc. as Vice President of Marketing.  Founded in 1989 by owner/President, Jim Lee, Lee Aerospace is well known for their reputation in window manufacturing.  They have both OEM production as well as aftermarket support.  “I grew up on aftermarket in the aviation industry, so that is one strength that I bring to Lee.  However, just as exciting is the manufacturing capabilities that we have at Lee Aerospace.  It is kind of aviation’s best kept secret!” says Nesmith.  With her new position, getting the secret out to the industry will be Malissa’s number one priority.

Lee has capabilities in aerostructure sub and major assemblies as well as NADCAP accredited composite manufacturing.  As VP of Marketing, Malissa will be responsible for promoting Lee Aerospace’s production and manufacturing capabilities.  “Lee Aerospace is a progressive company and that makes it fun to be part of their team” she adds.  With a full engineering staff, ISO AS9100D and NADCAP accreditations, and over 150,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing facilities in The Air Capital of the World, Wichita, Kansas, Lee Aerospace supports major aircraft manufacturers, start to finish, on many of their manufacturing and assembly needs.

Malissa adds “This will be Lee’s first year to exhibit at Oshkosh, so I am hitting the road running with what I know.  It should be a great experience for me and for the company as well.  I am really looking forward to it.”
