Scottsdale, AZ (March 22, 2022) – Polaris Aero (polarisaero.com), a leading aviation safety software company based in Scottsdale, Arizona, is pleased to announce that one of its sales executives, Kellie Roby, has become a Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) through the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA).
According to NBAA, CAM certification demonstrates a recipient’s exemplary level of aviation industry knowledge and expertise. CAMs are dedicated to best practices in aviation management, and are continuously striving for excellence in aviation safety. The CAM program examines applicants’ knowledge and experience in leadership, human resources, operations, technical and facilities services, and business management.
Roby is highly gratified at becoming a CAM, and said that it has helped her more closely connect with Polaris Aero customers who are already pursuing these best practices in their safety programs.
“I’ve been in my customers’ position, and I understand the nuances of what they’re aiming to achieve—safety-wise—and the challenges involved,” Roby shared. “It’s helped me connect with our customers on a more personal level.” Roby added that she welcomes the opportunity to work with Polaris Aero clients who also are pursuing their CAM certification, and are striving to implement those same, stringent safety goals in their own departments.
