ORLANDO, FL (September 15, 2014) – AVT Simulation is pleased to announce the appointment of 25 year US Army Veteran, Colonel Kevin Vizzarri, as the company’s Vice President/Director of Business Development, Marketing and Proposals. Vizzarri will be responsible for leading business development, proposal, and marketing efforts key to AVT’s continued outstanding growth.

Vizzarri spent majority of his time with the Army in leadership roles, specifically focused on US Army Aviation and as a Foreign Area Officer. Vizzarri joins AVT Simulation with extensive, hands-on training experience having recently served as the 166th Aviation Brigade Commander where he was responsible for training 43 deploying units including over 5,400 soldiers on Army Aviation operations from team to Brigade levels. The direct training knowledge Vizzarri brings to AVT Simulation, combined with being an Apache Longbow helicopter aviator himself, will afford him the ability to play a crucial part in developing AVT’s Apache and Blackhawk training products line.

A US Army War College Fellow at the Istituo Alti Studi Per La Defesa (Italian Armed Forces version of National War College), Vizzarri was the only American representing the US Armed Forces in an Executive Level Master’s program producing curriculum alongside General Officers, Colonels, and Senior Civilians from the Italian Government and Defense Industry. Vizzarri holds a Masters in Global Strategy and Security from University of Roma, a Masters in Public Policy and Management from University of Pittsburgh, and a Bachelors from Duquesne University.

We are very excited to have Colonel Kevin Vizzarri join the AVT Simulation team,” says Chief Operating Officer, Rick Easton. Easton continued, “Kevin brings significant Army aviation as well as leadership experience to our company, and he will be a great asset leading AVT Simulation’s Business Development and Marketing Team.  Kevin’s responsibilities include all aspects of AVT’s domestic military as well as international sales.  We look forward to Kevin’s eminent arrival.”
