MEET THE TEAM

Robert (Bob) McHugh

Nuvite Sales, Vice President
Robert (Bob) McHugh, referenced in many aviation circles simply as Airline Bob, is always ready to talk shop, particularly if the topic is appearance maintenance. You see Bob is a problem solver, and it’s what he’s been doing for NUVITE for nearly thirty years! Representative for international sales, his boundless enthusiasm for the NUVITE product line is infectious; partly due to a big personality, but, and he’ll be the first to tell you… “What truly advertises the NUVITE brand is that each product consistently delivers as promised.” Bob’s travel takes him to Europe and Asia. When on the North American continent, Bob’s kickin’ back in Bixby, Oklahoma with his wife, Rhonda, five adult children, and seven grandchildren.

Radara Elkins

Field Sales Representative
When Radara isn’t showing a maintenance crew how to shine leading edges on a fleet of Gulfstream jets, or recommending the best product for a DIY’er to use on their Airstream, she’s at home in Oklahoma, ATV free-wheeling with her husband the professional FMX rider, Cody Elkins, and their two daughters. You see, Radara’s passion for all things moving easily mixes with her job for the past 15 years as a field representative for NUVITE. Covering the Midwest and appearing at most domestic trade events, you can always count on Radara to assess the application and recommend the right product for the job.

James (Red) Skelton

Field Sales Representative
James, from Charleston, SC, graduated from The Citadel as a commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps, and served nine years of active duty. A skilled Night Systems Instructor pilot, James’ love of aviation was cemented when as a winged Naval Aviator, he flew the CH-53E Super Stallion, and was carried over with his marriage to Jill, a fellow pilot. James & Jill have a daughter and soon to arrive, son. James covers the Eastern US for NUVITE. A little known, but seemingly obvious fact (his call sign is “Red”), James’ cousin is one of America’s best loved comedians, the late, great Red Skelton.
