IMC Clubs BoD Adds Hartzell Propeller President Joe Brown

Was Selected To Provide Expertise In Club Development

To accommodate IMC Club’s consistent growth and the need to further develop its organizational structure, on Monday February 4, 2013 the IMC Clubs appointed Joe Brown, president and chief operating officer of Hartzell Propellers, to its Board of Directors.

As a highly qualified volunteer, Mr. Brown (pictured) was chosen to provide his expertise to help with the Club development. Board meetings take place at Norwood Airport (Norwood, MA) quarterly and are held at the IMC Club International corporate offices.

Joe is a 1700-hour instrument rated pilot who flies a SR-22 and TBM 700/850. He is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Middlebury College. He joined Hartzell Propeller Inc. immediately after his graduation from college in 1990.  He trained in several departments and became an assistant to the vice president of manufacturing.  In 1995 Joe became vice president of manufacturing and in 2000 became co-president of the company with his brother, Jim.  In 2007, Joe assumed the role of President of Hartzell Propeller Inc. He has a passion for and experience in the principles of lean manufacturing, waste reduction and development of self-directed work teams. He is also a Lifetime Member of the IMC Club.

Hartzell Propeller Inc. is the leader in advanced propeller design and manufacturing technology. They are the supplier of choice for nearly every major aircraft manufacturer.

The company traces its history to 1914 when a relationship between Orville Wright and Robert Hartzell led to the manufacture of the first Hartzell propeller in 1917. The company’s founding principle of "Built on Honor" has been central to their corporate values from the very beginning.

“I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to Hartzell Propeller’s President Joe Brown for accepting our invitation to provide his expertise for our rapidly growing organization. It will allow us to focus even more on growth and further development of the Club for the benefit and safety of General Aviation” – said Radek Wyrzykowski, President of the IMC Club International, Inc.

Too often pilots finish their training and then become distracted and disengaged from the flying community. The result is a dangerous lack of proficiency and or the loss of support to the flying community as a whole. The IMC Club is mitigating this issue by providing a means to re-engage pilots with other pilots and instructors. IMC club is coaching, training, mentoring and helping pilots to fly in actual instrument meteorological conditions.
