It’s no secret that ONEIL employee-owners are exceptional and represent some of the brightest minds in our industry – and Paul Haslam is certainly one of them.

Haslam, Principal S1000D & S-Series IPS Specifications Expert and a 17-year ONEIL associate, recently earned international recognition as a recipient of the prestigious Aerospace Industries Association’s (AIA) Leonard Ross Memorial Award for Achievement. The award is given to someone who has exhibited individual excellence, outstanding performance, and long-term achievement in product support on behalf of the aerospace and defense industry.

“There is no one in the industry more deserving of this honor than Paul,” said Hernan Olivas, president and chief executive officer for ONEIL. “He has worked tirelessly for nearly 16 years to coordinate, educate, and liaison with senior staff of the U.S. armed services for the widespread adoption of specifications, and his work has created countless positive economic, technical, and engineering outcomes. We are proud to call him one of our own and celebrate this significant achievement alongside him.”

Haslam, involved in the production and continuance of the S1000D specification since 1999, has worked to improve the entire suite of S-Series ILS specifications for U.S. and international adoption. This award recognizes his commitment, extensive knowledge, and focused strategy to bring aerospace specifications into alignment.

“Paul puts his whole heart into his work, demonstrating the ideals Len Ross celebrated when he envisioned this award,” said Joe Spruill, CAPT, SC, USN (Ret.), of Lockheed Martin, and Chair of the Aerospace Industries Association Product Support Committee. “His shepherding of the Integrated Product Support Standards has truly resulted in improved and more affordable sustainment for the warfighter.”

As one of only seven recipients since the award was created in 1992, we are privileged to celebrate incredible career accomplishments alongside our friend and coworker. We look forward to his continued contributions as the entire ONEIL team does its part to move the aerospace industry forward. Congratulations, Paul!
