LOS ANGELES, CA (APRIL 6, 2020) – Nycote® Laboratories Corporation, a global leader in anti-corrosion technology for the aerospace and automotive industries, announced today the appointment of Andrew Larsen to a newly created position overseeing business development, technical sales and communications. The announcement was made by President and Chief Operating Officer Marcie Simpson.
“Andrew brings to Nycote a strategic perspective from his partnership and marketing experience,” said Simpson. “With the successful launch of our latest product Nycote 99 Ecoshield, and the eminent launch of other new products, Andrew’s role will be critical as we look at our whole business and key factors like market opportunity, competitive advantage and resourcing.”
Larsen will work remotely from Washington state, the innovation hub for the aerospace industry. In his new role, he is charged with enhancing Nycote’s long-term value for their customers, suppliers, and partnerships, as well as further the development of Nycote’s strategic initiatives worldwide.
“With Andrew’s long-standing relationships with key influencers in aerospace and defense, coupled with the ability to strategically negotiate, we couldn’t be more thrilled that he is joining our team,” said Pennie Burnham, Vice President, Sales and Market Research, to whom Larsen will report. “His business intelligence, paired with his collaborative communication skills, make him the right fit as we move Nycote Labs’ technologies and products forward.”
Before a stint at the Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance (PNAA), where he oversaw members and partnerships for the organization, Larsen was Director, Market Development for the Pacific Northwest Defense Coalition (PNDC), an association for the Northwest region’s defense and security industry. While there, Larsen was integral in establishing strategic partnerships, acquiring new members while retaining current members and investors, securing sponsorship commitments, as well as developing a strategic partnership and plan for Washington small business delegations in the industry to showcase their supply chain capabilities to out-of-state Prime Contractors.
