CTS Engines hires new SVP

CTS Engines has hired Tom Bode as its Senior Vice President, Operations. In his new role, Bode will be responsible for all operations, quality, and engineering functions, and will report to Vesa Paukkeri, CTS Engines’s President and COO. Since 2008, Bode has been the General Manager of the Columbus Engine Center for Pratt & Whitney, a company he joined in 2000. Prior to 2000, Bode worked at GE Aviation, where he was a quality and engineering leader.

“As the General Manager of CEC, Tom managed over 700 employees across multiple engine production lines and reduced overhaul turnaround times through the promotion of Lean manufacturing principles,” said Paukkeri. “His performance as a manager was recognized through numerous awards, and we are extremely happy that he will be coming aboard as we look toward future growth opportunities.”

“I am excited to join the CTS Engines team as the SVP, Operations,” added Mr. Bode. “CTS has done a great job establishing itself as the leading mature engine MRO in North America, and I am confident that the company will continue its outstanding customer service and growth trajectory.”
