Brisbane, CA, United States, 2007/05/03 - Caroline Daniels, Chairman and CEO, Aircraft Technical Publishers, will receive the Trailblazer award at the 23rd Annual Leaders & Legends luncheon. The award is given annually to a woman who have successfully led a business for 10+ years.
Ms. Daniels started Aircraft Technical Publishers (ATP) in 1973 with her father Bill, a WWII Flying Tigers pilot, after he noticed that updates to aircraft maintenance publications were piling up in the hangars. Not being integrated into the maintenance manuals posed a serious safety threat. Caroline was recruited to design a single source library service for the manuals.
Ms. Daniels was appointed Chairman and CEO in 1989, and has since taken the ATP library concept from microfiche to CD to desktop software and web delivery. She created the core business model of establishing licensing agreements with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), such as Cessna and Honeywell, for use of their manuals to provide a single-source solution for over 8,000 aircraft maintenance customers.
“It is wonderful to be recognized not just as a leader, but as someone whose risk taking has paved the way for other women entrepreneurs,” says Daniels on winning the Trailblazer award.
