Greenville, S.C. — Stevens Aerospace announces the untimely passing today of Randy Smith, after a courageous battle with cancer. One of the company’s most beloved and tenured employees, Smith was vice president of Stevens’ AOG (Aircraft on Ground) and Mobile Services Division. He was based in Nashville, Tenn.
Smith joined Stevens as an A&P technician in 1990, after leaving the Air Force. He served the company as crew lead in Nashville, director of maintenance for the military C-12 program in Greenville, S.C., and general manager of the Nashville (BNA) facility. In 2016, Smith was tasked with revitalizing the AOG Division, and under his leadership the unit grew to thirteen locations and represented a significant percentage of company revenue.
“Randy was a highly dedicated member of the Stevens team who showed amazing commitment and determination in helping the company meet its goals,” said Stevens Aerospace owner Tom Foley. “He was always pleasant to deal with, took on whatever responsibility was given him and was a positive, productive force in the company. We are very grateful for his contribution and extend our deepest condolences to his wife Kristy and daughter Haley. We will all miss him greatly.”
