About Mike Brown:

General Manager of Aero-Plastics

Mike Brown was chosen by PNAA’s Board of Directors as the 2014 Aerospace Executive of the Year for his outstanding leadership of the Renton-based company Aero-Plastics.  Since 1945 Aero-Plastics has earned the reputation as a leader in providing the highest quality products for aerospace, defense, medical and other commercial applications.

Brown, a transplant from the Orthopedic Manufacturing Industry, has been at the helm since 2007 and the awards have rolled in ever since.

Brown offers that the keys to his success stem back to Aero-Plastics’ core values.  Aero-Plastics truly believes and never forgets that dependability is the key to its existence.  Their attention to detail allows them to achieve a cost, quality and delivery level that has been honored by Boeing’s Performance Excellence Award for the 7th consecutive year and also as Boeing Supplier of the Year.

These high honors and repeat performances could not have occurred without excellence in leadership.  Brown has proven his ability to successfully lead and has a track record of improving the profitability of his companies.  While at Aero-Plastics, he achieved consistent double-digit revenue growth while increasing earning percentages.  He also designed and implemented key performance measures related to cost, quality, and delivery for all operational departments supporting the corporate balanced scorecard.

He is a charismatic and motivational leader that instills a positive, team-oriented work ethic in his employees.  His energy is contagious and his commitment to quality is second to none.
