Tiffany Griffin Joins Duncan Aviation’s Paint and Interior Modification Sales
Duncan Aviation announces that Tiffany Griffin has joined the Paint and Interior Modification Sales Team at the company’s Battle Creek, MI, facility.
Griffin first joined the Duncan Aviation team as a Design intern in 2001, while attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). During her undergraduate studies in Science of Design, Griffin took several classes in the Architecture College and met now-associate designer Teri Nekuda, who was also taking classes at UNL. Nekuda informed Griffin of an open position for a design internship at Duncan Aviation.
As an intern, Griffin found the work of designing aircraft interiors fascinating. When her tenure was up, she worked for a couple of years as an independent contractor for a residential and commercial design firm. In 2004, Griffin joined the Duncan Aviation Design Team in Lincoln, NE, as a full-time designer.
Taking on the responsibilities of the Design Team leader in Battle Creek required Griffin to move there in 2007, and she was simultaneously working on a Master’s in Business Administration at Bellevue University in Nebraska. After earning her MBA, she accepted the role of project manager for the Dassault Falcon 7X completions program, and in 2014, she took on her most recent role as Battle Creek’s NetJets program coordinator.
Griffin has set various career goals over the years, and using Duncan Aviation’s tuition-reimbursement program for her Master’s Degree has helped her attain those goals.
“I’m proud to have been able to earn my degree while working here at Duncan Aviation. Juggling a full-time design workload with equally demanding studies was tough, but it required me to be deeply focused, detail-oriented and self-motivated,” says Griffin. “The skills and tools I took away from the master’s classes like statistics and strategic planning have served me well in my professional career, and I apply those same tools in my everyday dealings with both our internal and external customers by keeping them up to speed with every phase of their project and ensuring that we meet or exceed their expectations.”
Griffin is looking forward to growing and expanding those skills in her new position in Paint & Interior Sales.
“Tiffany will bring her extensive customer service experience, her working knowledge of aircraft design, and her high degree of professionalism to her new position with our interior and paint services,” says Sales manager, Phil Suglia. “We’re delighted she has accepted this new challenge and know she’ll use her knowledge and experience to serve customers well.”
