that is so important in getting a new venture off of the ground. Further, I believe that many of the companies which joined ASA over the years, did so because of the credibility that Mike Molli brought to the management team through his many years of service on the board of directors.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 7, 2010
Over 250 industry professionals were on hand at the Four Seasons as Mike Molli, Principal of Technitrade, was honored by the Aviation Suppliers Association (ASA) board of directors with the 2010 Edward J. Glueckler award.
At the beginning of the ceremony, Michele Dickstein, President of ASA shared background regarding the association and Mr. Molli's contributions. "In January of 1993 a small group of industry visionaries came together to form what has now evolved into the award-winning organization representing the distributors, suppliers, repair stations, manufacturers, air carriers and other companies that provide services to the aviation market. And we are extremely proud to present this year's award to a global industry leader that has been involved from the beginning of ASA: Mr. Mike Molli."
During the ceremony special guests, including Mr. Glueckler who made the journey from Singapore, addressed the audience. "Mr. Molli's leadership role on the board of directors contributed significantly to the vision, guidance and ultimate success of our organization," shared Edward Glueckler, ASA's founding and first President. "He not only brought a wealth of industry knowledge but also that keen sense of business "street smarts" that is so important in getting a new venture off of the ground. Further, I believe that many of the companies which joined ASA over the years, did so because of the credibility that Mike Molli brought to the management team through his many years of service on the board of directors."
Following the Lifetime achievement presentation, Mike Molli, Principal of Technitrade added, "I am honored to accept this award on behalf of the talented people who have built ASA into the remarkable organization it is today. Personally, I view ASA as an example of how innovative leaders can join forces to do the right thing for their industry and build programs for the success of its members, while benefiting the aviation community as a whole."
