AMTC Elevated22, Tampa FL, Paraclete Booth #1109-In fulfillment of the helmet manufacturer’s long-term business plan, Paraclete Aviation Life Support elevates the company’s long-time vice president [VP], Anthony Economos as Paraclete’s new president while the original president, Scott Hedges, assumes the role of VP, Product Development. As one of two original co-founders of Paraclete, Economos has held the VP position with the company since its launch in 2014.

During his term, Economos was a key driver when the company secured its corporate ISO 9001:2015 certification, as well as securing the Aviation Helmet Standard certifications set forth by the U.S. Department of Interior [DOI] /U.S. Forest Service [USFS] aviation helmet standard for the company’s Aspida and Aegis helmets. In only eight years, Paraclete Aviation Life Support has become a worldwide service provider to clients in 28 different countries, including Europe, South America and Asia. Today, the company is providing aviation safety equipment and training to multiple air medical transport and helicopter emergency management services [HEMS] companies throughout the world.

‘As a member of the American Association of Medical Services [AAMS], we value our relationships in supporting our clients who continually place their trust in Paraclete by donning our Aspida and Aegis helmets knowing each helmet is designed with comfort and safety through innovation, our three corporate pillars,’ said Economos. ‘In my new position as president, I look forward to strengthening those relationships while developing global opportunities to best serve those who risk their lives while saving the many in their care.’

Highlighting his decade of aviation-medical experience, Economos brings extensive experience in Software as a Service [SaaS] operations where he spearheaded technical operations culminating in successful mergers and acquisitions [M&A], with an estimated two-billion-dollar transactional value. In his former position as an executive of Censis Technologies, his natural relational, executive leadership and business acumen earned Economos a seat at the Chief Information Officer [CIO] Council governing all digital transformations for Fortive-owned companies, specializing in healthcare soft/hardware technology systems

‘Anthony has accumulated extensive knowledge in the medical-healthcare industry which has become an asset in advancing Paraclete’s air medical transport and HEMS markets,’ said Hedges. ‘He has a natural ability to foster relationships with all people that is unparalleled in the corporate ecosystem and will continue to do what he does best: building external relationships throughout the industry to achieve ‘win-win’ solutions.’

As Economos implements the company’s two-year strategic vision, his key decisions will center on accessing global market data and applying industry best practices to further Paraclete’s increasing presence throughout the world. In spearheading financial initiatives and operational responsibilities, Economos will implement targeted communications and negotiation to build partnerships while integrating key programs to proactively analyze issues, develop solutions, implement tactical programs and design metrics to measure business impact.

In addition to his many professional achievements, Economos earned a Master of Business Administration [MBA] degree from Murray State University and is currently earning his private pilot’s license.
