Ft Worth, Texas (April 10, 2023) – Schweizer is pleased to welcome Lewis Newman as the company’s new Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Newman’s first day with Schweizer is April 10, 2023.
“Lewis is a highly respected financial professional with a long history in aerospace manufacturing and a strong track record of driving financial growth,” says David Horton, President and CEO of Schweizer. “He makes a wonderful addition to the Schweizer leadership team as his expertise will help guide Schweizer through this next exciting phase as we ramp up production and expand our business.”

Before those positions, he was the senior vice president of finance and the CFO at the Carroll Company where he oversaw financial management of the company’s restructuring and set it on a path to profitability. He has also served as CFO at Marlow Industries, Constella Group’s Futures Group Division, and TXF Products. Newman is a licensed CPA and holds a master’s in business administration from The University of North Texas and a bachelor’s degree in business administration in finance from The University of Texas at Arlington.
