Kubasik, who has served on the board since 2013, is president and ceo of New York-based Seabury Advisory Group, an advisory services company focused on the aviation, and aerospace and defence industries.

“The titanium component manufacturing market is undergoing rapid growth, and I am delighted to continue to take NTi to the next level as we begin to deliver significant benefits to the global [aerospace and defence] sectors through affordable titanium components at the highest-quality levels,” Kubasik said.
