Not for me personally - I don't have the display experience apart from anything else, but looks like a great job.

Can I suggest contacting HQ at the Society of Experimental Test Pilots via www.setp.org . I can think of quite a few ex test pilots with significant corporate or military leadership experience who might do a very good job of this and they have a mechanism for circulating job adverts to members worldwide.
