    Candy Chatawanich

    Senior Director of Engineering

    Candy is engineering safer, quieter and more fuel-efficient missions.

    A college entry essay on microbes used to clean oil spills in the ocean inspired Candy’s path to becoming an engineer and having a real, practical impact on the world. Today, she’s leading a global team of engineers that ensures travelers and cargo travel safely, efficiently, and on time. How has Candy continued to excel and shape the future during her 2-decade long career as an engineer?  Balance. When she’s not shaping the aerospace industry, she’s staying active through dance, yoga and her new hobby, kickboxing.
