Geoff has led AVIAN’s sunny Panama City, Fla. Division since he joined the company in 2008.

He knew he’d have the opportunity to roll his sleeves up and really get things done if Jeff Sherman, his former officer in charge from his Navy days flying H-53 helicopters, was at the helm of the company.

A true go-getter, Geoff excels in just about everything he sets his mind to, including flight test and evaluation of the Coastal Battlefield Reconnaissance and Analysis (COBRA) system, AVIAN’s business development in Panama City and health and fitness.

He takes great pride in being a part of the AVIAN organization. “I find it absolutely amazing to see this company grow from just a handful of us to such a large group of highly competent and motivated people. It encourages me to work hard to grow our Florida division to contribute to being the same.”

Geoff thrives when testing new aircraft systems where he is able to conduct ground integration, troubleshoot issues found, operate systems in flight, and analyze flight data, so that the systems are prepared for fleet operators.

In his personal time you will find Geoff with his family, cheering for the New York Yankees baseball team, competitive bike racing or prepping for an extreme physical fitness challenge like his upcoming RAGNAR, an overnight running relay race this month.
