Get To Know Monty

“Aviation runs deep in my family. Several of my relatives have worked in the industry, including my great grandfather who worked in engineering at Braniff Airlines for almost 40 years after World War II. While I’m not an engineer, I may have missed my calling. One of my most vivid childhood memories is winning paper airplane contests with my siblings off the top deck of a parking garage in downtown Dallas.”

“To catch me outside work, you might have to put on your running shoes and join me at a marathon or half-marathon.”

“I’m always game to go see a good spy movie.”
