As a new Sales Account Manager and principle member of the Becker Avionics sales team, Floyd will develop and execute a comprehensive sales and marketing strategy to expand and capture the fixed-wing market, as well as focus on strengthening existing and future Becker Avionics dealer relationships.

Floyd Roney comes to Becker Avionics with over 30 years of aviation experience and was most recently with EMS Aviation as Channel Sales Manager where he was in charge of a dealer and distribution network of 166 accounts throughout a 13-state territory.
