“A manager, or leader of any type, can’t do everything from behind a desk or computer.”


Loyalty is another attribute Braddock highly values. “So many people these days just want to job hop,” he says. “They want a job as a stepping-stone to go somewhere else. Well, the grass isn’t always greener. We look for people that want to grow with our company. We have people who started in shipping who are now our purchasing directors.

Yet, Braddock stresses he’s not tangled up in technology. “I believe in management by walking around. A manager, or leader of any type, can’t do everything from behind a desk or computer,” he explains. “You really have to engage people. Even in this day, where everything is about email and text, you are so much more efficient if people can hear and see you in person. Setting an example in person is huge.”


Challenges out


One challenge Southeast Aerospace has in common with most aviation businesses is rising costs and increasing regulations. The company is AS9100 and ISO 9001 certified,
