Acomb Ostendorf & Associates, project management and design experts for the themed entertainment industry, has appointed Colonel Kevin P. Mastin as Director of New Business Development.
The company says the recently retired Vice Commander has “extensive experience with team building, strategic planning, interagency coordination, diplomacy, and contingency operations.”
“Kevin was a natural fit with AO&A as we create our own category in the themed entertainment sector, ” explains AO&A Co-Founder Tom Acomb. “His bandwidth has no limit and paired with his legendary drive to succeed, Kevin will energise our senior team and inspire our college grads.”
Mastin, a command pilot with more than 4, 100 flight hours under his belt, was also Professor of Aerospace Studies at the University of Washington before his retirement. He comments, “I knew I wanted to do something completely different while still having the opportunity to have a positive impact on people's lives. I came to AO&A because the AO&A team does this every day by creating amazing experiences that impact lives by putting smiles on people's faces. I love every bit of it."
Mike Ostendorf, Co-founder of AO&A, remarked, "We have already taken off in a brave, new direction with Kevin and we are excited with every opportunity and idea that has grown from our early work. It is the beginning of an incredible ride for our dynamic team."
