President, AeroComputers

Kathy is the President of AeroComputers, an aerospace technology firm that is the industry leader in “providing tactical mission management systems for airborne applications that integrate the best in map data and generation.” The company was started by Kathy’s brother-in-law, the late Mark Gassaway, a pilot who invented the technology when he saw how cumbersome and antiquated paper maps were becoming in the face of technology. After his passing, Kathy stepped in to carry out three main arcs to get the company back in the forefront: raise employee morale, re-establish client relationships, secure partnerships with other industry manufacturers.
