Steven DiGesualdo Joins King Aerospace

March 9, 2020

DALLAS, TX – King Aerospace has named Steven DiGesualdo as capture manager for its business development team. He will be based at the home office in Dallas, TX.

“Steve immediately seized upon how King Aerospace’s no-excuses culture and strong service offerings will benefit potential customers,” says King Aerospace President Jarid King. “His 35 years of industry experience will serve King Aerospace well in identifying growth opportunities, developing capture strategies and pursuing strategic teaming opportunities.”

DiGesualdo previously provided international capture management – both military and commercial – for Vertex Aerospace (formerly L-3 Integrated Systems). He also consulted as an independent contractor for various defense firms. He spent almost 25 years with DynCorp International (including 16 years OCONUS) rising to the senior program manager level. DiGesualdo earned an aircraft maintenance management degree from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, FL, and holds a current airframe and powerplant license.

“King Aerospace has earned such respect in the aviation industry; I join its team with great enthusiasm,” says DiGesualdo. “King Aerospace’s reputation for integrity lessens the sales aspect of my job. It becomes more about how we can solve problems for others.”
