Kaminiski resigns in latest Sensis job shedding

Ken KaminskiSaab Sensis chief Ken Kaminski has resigned and the company’s air traffic management business will undergo a restructuring over the next month, according to local media reports.

“As a result of continued challenging business environments in both domestic and international markets and Saab’s continuous work towards greater efficiency, Saab’s US air traffic management business will undergo a restructuring over the next month which will result in a reduction of our workforce,” said Mike Gerry, who has succeeded Kaminski as president, in a statement to syracuse.com.

“A number of employees will transition to other positions within Saab resulting in an employment reduction in the air traffic management group in central New York of approximately 27. This is necessary in order to balance our capacity with our current and anticipated backlog.”

The company laid off 30 people in January in its air traffic management business, citing challenging business conditions in its air traffic management business although added 21 positions at its defence business in central New York.

Gerry said the restructuring will enable the company to “grow in the short term and become more competitive in the market in the long term so we can continue to provide the solutions and affordability our customers expect.”

He said the New York centre would remain Saab’s center of excellence in air traffic management, a key initiative of parent company Saab which acquired Sensis in 2011.
