WYVERN Ltd and the International Society of Safety Professionals hereby award Nathan Predoehl the Eagle Talon Safety Excellence Award for his distinguished service as Senior Director, Audit Program and Senior Director of Operations during his tenure with WYVERN Ltd, Bedford, Massachusetts, from April 1, 2018 to October 1, 2019.
Under Nathan’s leadership, WYVERN’s audit program continued and expanded operations around the world to include Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Europe, and Australia. The WYVERN team, our clients, and the industry, benefited from Nathan’s style of leading by example. His tireless efforts to ensure excellence inspired others to serve the higher cause of elevating safety worldwide. As a lead auditor for flight operations, aircraft maintenance, ground handling, safety risk management, and international procedures, he expertly completed numerous audits for some of the largest and most sophisticated operators around the world, providing each one with valuable insight to make meaningful and practical improvements to their operations.
Nathan also improved the audit standards and audit tools which allowed WYVERN to be recognized as the only aviation audit agency that fully embraces the SMS assessment guidance provided by Safety Management International Collaboration Group made up of the ICAO, FAA, Transport Canada, EASA, and various national authorities around the globe.
In early 2018, Nathan launched WYVERN’s Flight Leader Program, allowing operators to continually assess and improve their safety culture with a focus on human and organizational factors, thereby reducing the risks related to the issues cited most often by safety investigation boards.
Nathan’s personal approach improved relationships among the WYVERN team and enhanced company culture immensely. Nathan always made himself available to assist, and team members often sought his advice and learned from his wonderful perceptions and stories as a highly experienced aviation professional. This immeasurable influence provided team stability during challenging times and enabled the WYVERN team to focus on achieving our strategic objectives.
Nathan’s meritorious achievements bring great credit to himself and WYVERN Ltd.
