Seabury Global Aerospace & Defense Consulting

Delivering actionable
solutions to A&D industries

What Differentiates Seabury Global Aerospace & Defense Consulting from other Consulting firms? What is our unique product?

  • The combination of the skills of the CEO and COO are unmatched in the aerospace and defense advisory industry.  When combining the talent of a former COO of largest defense firm in the world with those of the COO, a retired USAF Acquisition General Officer with significant command, flight test, and program management experience including leadership of world’s largest defense program, Seabury Global Aerospace & Defense will provide you a product that has the knowledge of past successes and lessons learned from across the Aerospace industry. If you have a problem statement or are looking for a gap analysis to determine your strengths or weaknesses, this leadership team will respond quickly and work with you to follow up with closure plans, whether it be in the evolution of Strategy and Capture Execution, New Business Proposal Leadership, Program Execution planning and structure, Mergers and Acquisitions, or Organizational rebuilding.  As a member of the larger Seabury Capital Organization, this Team also has reach back into adjacent skills, including commercial aerospace analysis, cost reduction opportunity identification and planning, aircraft acquisition, MRO activities, human capital usage, IT systems, and financing advice from restructuring to labor negotiations that can also apply to today’s ever increasing complex Defense business.
  • Our business model is based on utilizing high impact individuals for strategically important issues.  We prefer to partner with our clients and utilize their resources for analysis and studies at the onset.  If direct talent application is needed to complement their existing workforce, we can provide skills at a fraction of the cost of a full time employee and when the task is complete, so is the burden of cost. As 1099 employees, the client doesn’t bear the burden of another overhead cost in achieving their business goals.
  • Recruitment of this level of talent continues as our client list expands as we already support several key Aerospace organizations such as:  Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, Bombardier, Embraer, MITRE, and Raytheon.
  • In addition, Seabury can bring investment banking skills to bear to conduct in-depth examinations of financial data, merger or acquisition options, and review strategic direction and business planning. We have the unique ability to see aerospace and defense challenges from both the Department of Defense and corporate leadership perspectives.  Seabury Global A&D is then uniquely positioned to bring a broad set of aerospace, banking, and advisory skills to work the problem as required.
