Jeffrey Parker   JEFFREY PARKER
CEO
Jeffrey Parker is the co-founder of ATAC and has managed the company since inception. He was instrumental in laying the foundation for the growth of outsourced tactical airborne services to the US military, enabling the Department of Defense's air forces to save millions of taxpayer dollars while both increasing combat capability, and simultaneously extending fighter fleet service life. As a result of his vision and leadership, ATAC is the industry leader, executing more than the equivalent of an Air Force fighter squadron's yearly flying hour program, employing a composite wing's equivalent variety of aircraft, and spanning greater than a major military command's geographic area of responsibility.
