Here is the summary that was put on the site
General Manager, EASi Montreal Design Centre
Malak Sedra, age 39, spearheads the EASi Montreal Design Centre, which is part of the global recruiting giant Aerotek, and has close to 20 years of experience in the aerospace domain. He took on his current role in May 2017 with the goal of creating a culture change at the centre. Leveraging his aerospace design experience, Sedra works closely with team leads and business development to grow all engagements like designing aircraft interiors and ducting or aero-derivatives gas turbines.
Sedra holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, specializing in thermo-fluids and propulsion, as well as an executive MBA from the John Molson School of Business and a PMP designation.
Working with companies like Pratt and Whitney Canada (P&WC), Goodrich and Triumph, Sedra is proficient in electrical hardware, engine certification, EMI, and fuel control design, among other skills. At P&WC, he was one of its youngest team leads responsible for the PT6C-67A, the power plant powering the BA609 tilt rotor. He worked on almost all engine models at PWC during his tenure and as a systems engineer worked on hydro-mechanical design within fuel systems and supported engine tests.
He was also certified by Andrew’s Airforce base to be the system engineer for flight tests on board P&WC’s Boeing 720, which included altitude testing required for engine certifications at up to 40,000 feet. At P&WC, he then took on an aftermarket project management position before working with Goodrich as a program manager for its pump engine controls. Goodrich sponsored his PMP and executive MBA.
EASi was also attracted to Sedra because of his entrepreneurial mindset, having founded a range of businesses like Sedracorp.com and Sedratech.com, which have been put on hold since taking leadership of EASi. He remains chairman and CEO of e-SKY.ca, a training platform. Sedra is also the coauthor of an online course called Introduction to Project Management, which follows the PMBOK standard issued by PMI. He often shares his training and project management knowledge with members of the aerospace industry.
