Chief Executive Officer

Following a career as an engineer in the aerospace and space industries I founded KDC in 2002. It was the perfect opportunity to use my passion and experience in aerospace engineering to help talented engineers deliver amazing projects.

In late 2022, we took over ATL Europe and have brought it into the KDC Group, using our experience of on-time delivery of projects with a focus on quality, to deliver Part 21j  and DAOS approval mods.

Quality and service are at the core of our business. We are corporate members of the ADS Group, WEAF, FAC, and the Recruitment & Employment Confederation. To reinforce our quality-led values KDC are accredited to EN9100 and ISO9001.
