Ever since her first plane ride at four years old, Oksana has been hooked on aviation. Even after receiving her BS in Aeronautical Engineering and her FAA airframe license, she is still fascinated by how airplanes work; how hundreds of tons of metal lifts itself into the air to move people and cargo. She took that fascination with her to McDonnell Douglas, FedEx, Bombardier, and UXC Eclipse (formerly Tectura) where she expanded her experience, from developing composite repairs, performing aircraft recovery and modifications, to aviation management and business development.
I believe my success comes not only from my knowledge and experience in the industry, but from a willingness to work hard, which I learned from my immigrant parents.
What intrigued her the most was solving problems and asking questions. “Why does that happen, how can we improve this, what would happen if we considered this instead?” This is what drew her to consulting more than 20+ years ago, when she started the MYRA Group, a firm specializing in high value-added services in engineering and operational efficiency for the commercial aviation industry.
At Oliver Wyman, Oksana advises companies in the transportation sector on strategy development, operational efficiency, maintenance and engineering, and technology. She possesses a demonstrated record of realizing growth and efficiencies across various industry segments and functions, from manufacturing to aftermarket. She believes her success is due to her willingness to work hard, her respect for others, and the curiosity she has been able to garner through her international experience in North and Central America, Western Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. She is bilingual in English and Ukrainian and moderately fluent in Polish and Russian.
