Hunter
Fannin

Project Manager
From Houston to the river and back to Houston Hunter did not need to stray far from home to find the start of his career. Schooling from Texas State with a major in Industrial Engineering he was prepped to work at AIMS Composites where he could hone skills and develop to what he hoped to be an innovator to the industry. He wears a few hats at the company between Project management, proposals, and operations. He also wears many hats in his daily life from a young dog dad to an amateur chef at home. He believes that his work in all aspects of life reflects himself and who he works for and wants nothing but to shine.

Kate
Willis

Controller
Kate grew up with her 4 brothers and sisters near the finger lakes region of New York state and earned a bachelor’s degree from a small college there.  She was recruited by Shell and moved to New Orleans where she got a MBA from Loyola.  As the saying goes, Kate got to Texas as soon as she could and continued to work for Shell in various roles and multiple departments.  Working as the controller at AIMS has been a great change and a lot of fun for Kate; she especially enjoys the camaraderie of a smaller company.  Away from AIMS, Kate spends her time with her family and her dogs.
