Hawker Beechcraft joins WEF community


HBC joins World Economic Forum’s community of global growth companies

Hawker Beechcraft Corporation announced that it has been admitted into the World Economic Forum’s community of global growth companies (GGC). Joining the GGC’s membership base of more than 300 companies from over 60 countries recognises Hawker Beechcraft’s shift throughout the past decade to become a global business. Out of all of the international markets, HBC sees Asia providing some of the greatest opportunities for future growth.

“As membership is by invitation only, our inclusion into such a prestigious establishment is a huge honor and we look forward to drawing inspiration from other members to use as a foundation for even further expansion on an international scale,” said Shawn Vick, chairman and chief executive, Hawker Beechcraft International. “We hope we can forge strong partnerships with like-minded companies to meet demand from our customers in Asia.”

As part of its admission, Hawker Beechcraft will participate in World Economic Forum regional activities with dedicated GGC sessions such as the annual meeting of the new champions 2012 in Tianjin, People’s Republic of China, in September.
