Maine Pointe Attends AUSA Expo In Closer Look at How US Army is Investing in the Future

Maine Pointe’s David Grasso and Chris Brumitt to Represent Maine Pointe at Association of the United States Army Annual Meeting & Exposition

AUSA PRBoston, Mass., October 14, 2019 –Global supply chain and operations consulting firm Maine Pointe announced that David Grasso, EVP for Aviation, Aerospace & Defense, and Chris Brumitt, Vice President, Aerospace & Defense, will attend the Association of the United States Army Annual Meeting & Exposition, to be held October 14-16 in Washington, DC.

The event will provide Maine Pointe and other attendees with an unparalleled opportunity to learn more about the state of the Army, capabilities of supporting organizations and to visit over 700 exhibits of relevant industry products and services. Most importantly, the event will illustrate how the US Army is taking bold steps to invest in its future, and how industry will play a role in that development.

David Grasso, who was recently appointed as Executive Vice president and Industry Leader for Aviation, Aerospace & Defense, is a key player in Maine Pointe’s expansion in this industry. With decades of industry experience, Grasso has seen several significant accomplishments, including eliminating millions of man-hours from the design, planning, construction and delivery of nuclear submarines and carriers for a shipbuilder, resulting in a 20 percent reduction in total cost; architecting the first aerospace B2B exchange to achieve savings for commercial aircraft procurement, spare parts management, supply chain operations and reduced aircraft on ground; and defining new business capabilities and value creation models for a major defense contractor.

Chris Brumitt, as Maine Pointe’s Vice President, Aerospace & Defense, is also a seasoned professional with over 30 years of experience in the aerospace and defense sectors, and has delivered significant financial and operational success for his clients.

“Maine Pointe has taken a growing role in helping industry guide the US military into the future,” said Grasso. “Acquisition reform has been a top priority for the Department of Defense, and these reforms have allowed the warfighter to get new systems faster, and at lower cost. Maine Pointe is proud to play an ongoing role in guiding our clients guide the military to a greater state of military readiness.
