Meet Nick Bittle

Nick is the Senior Manager, Business Planning & Operations. He honorably served in the United States Marine Corps for five years, focusing on component-level avionics on the EA-6B Prowler. After the military, he became a contractor and deployed with the VMUs to Iraq and Afghanistan as a UAS Pilot and Maintainer. Nick also worked as an Advanced Training Manager at Insitu inc., a Boeing company where he trained customers to fly and maintain drones.

Nick joined the PLEXSYS team in 2015 and has extensive experience in project management, analysis and control, and proposal writing. He is considered an expert in strategic planning and operations, financial management, and organizational leadership. In 2015, he was part of a team that fielded OnScene Commander at the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York. The effort significantly improved the situational awareness and safety of Cadet Land Navigation. Nick was also a vital asset to the installation of the Multi-Domain-Lab at the United States Air Force Academy in 2021.

“Every day is a new challenge and slightly different than the last. The people at PLEXSYS are some of the best I’ve worked with, and they make coming to work a pleasure,” said Nick. “My experience with PLEXSYS company culture has been working hard and playing hard. I’ve been in some difficult situations in front of the customer, and what sets PLEXSYS apart is our unwavering commitment to the customer and their mission.”

Nick received his Bachelor’s degree from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and is currently working on his Master’s degree in Finance. He is an avid fisherman, hunter, dirt biker, mountain biker, hiker, gardener, and anything “outdoorsy.”
