Ken Schwartz

CEO of K&F Industries

Ken partnered with Aurora during a pivotal time in the evolution of K&F Industries, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of aircraft brakes. By revitalizing the focus of the business around growth, particularly in the high braking-demand areas of regional jets and unmanned aerial vehicles,  Ken helped position K&F in some of the most attractive segments of the market, leading to an NYSE IPO and ultimately a highly successful investment for both Aurora and K&F’s public shareholders. In addition to his team at Aurora, Ken partnered with independent directors Larry Bossidy, Dale Frey, Tom Johnson, Jack Peiffer, and Tom Zusi.
