Dennis Davis.

Name: Dennis Davis Age: 45 Title: President and CEO of Arkansas Aerospace Inc.

Dennis Davis has been flying with the big boys since British Aerospace Inc. bought his Arkansas Modification Center Inc. at Little Rock and renamed it Arkansas Aerospace Inc.

Davis is staying busy directing the company's growth. Arkansas Aerospace is large enough now that the pace occasionally tests even Davis' vast supply of energy.

"This year has been taxing, trying to get this new [$20-million] facility built and pursuing new business opportunities," Davis says.

The move to new quarters at the Little Rock Regional Airport will effectively triple the size of the operation. For now, Arkansas Aerospace will employ 450 people, but the new facility will be capable of supporting 600 to 700 employees.

Davis signed an employment contract with British Aerospace when he sold Arkansas Modification. His company historically built custom interiors for aircraft. Now, he will lead the company into new territory -- manufacturing aircraft parts, doing assembly work, and taking on military contracts and commercial aviation jobs.

Once his employment contract expires, what will Davis' next step be? His career path reflects a desire to build, sell and move onto a new challenge.
