George Knobloch named Horizon Air’s new vice president of maintenance and engineering

Horizon Air has named George Knobloch as the regional carrier’s new vice president of maintenance and engineering.

Knobloch will oversee a team of more than 400 employees who work in maintenance and engineering operations at the carrier’s six maintenance facilities.

Knobloch will be based in Portland, the location of Horizon Air’s maintenance and engineering hub, the Alaska Air Group-owned Horizon said in a news release.

“George is an outstanding leader with an excellent vision for our maintenance program,” said David Campbell, President and CEO of Horizon Air. “His attention to the safety of our guests and teammates will continue to be an asset in this role.”

Knobloch joined Alaska Air Group in Seattle in 2002 as the manager of line operations.

Until his promotion to vice president, he was managing director of maintenance and engineering at Horizon Air.
