Haeco announces new CEO from 1 December

HAECO is set to appoint Frank Walschot as its chief executive officer with effect from 1 December.

With over 30 years of experience in the aviation industry, Walschot is a recognised industry leader and well-rounded aviation executive, most recently as chief executive officer at SR Technics.

He has previously worked in the aviation MRO industry in Europe, the United States, Singapore, and Mainland China.

Commenting on the new appointment, Merlin Swire, chairman of HAECO Group, said: “Frank brings with him a wealth of knowledge and international experience in the MRO industry. I am confident that his leadership will help to deliver long-term sustainable growth for the HAECO Group.”
