Stacy Morrissey appointed Vice President Engineering and Quality at American Airlines

Stacy Morrissey​​
American Airlines has announced Stacy Morrissey as the Vice President of Engineering and Quality.

With extensive technical knowledge and leadership experience in various engineering, safety and quality assurance roles, Morrissey’s skills will be integral in the continued growth of American’s world-class Technical Operations team. She will report to Kevin Brickner, American’s senior vice president of Technical Operations.

In this role, Morrissey will oversee engineering, quality control, quality assurance, reliability, aircraft configuration management, maintenance programs and technical publications.

Morrissey joined American 22 years ago as a fleet operations engineer, where she was responsible for engineering support of the Boeing 757, 767 and 777 fleets. She later took on responsibilities across various quality and safety functions, which led to her promotion as director of Quality Assurance, Continuing Analysis and Surveillance System (CASS) and Operational Excellence in 2014. Morrissey was promoted to managing director of Base and Strategic Planning just two years later, taking on responsibility for long-range heavy maintenance planning and strategic project management. She then returned to Engineering in 2017 as managing director of Fleet Engineering to lead all fleet engineering teams, aircraft reliability and performance analysis, maintenance programs and technical publications.

Morrissey takes on her new role following the retirement of John Beavers, who left American after nearly 45 years of outstanding leadership and contributions within the company.

Morrissey graduated cum laude from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering. She is currently pursuing her MBA at the University of North Texas.
