Spairliners names Moeller new Managing Director and CEO
Spairliners appointed Thies Moeller to the position of Managing Director and CEO, replacing Sven-Uve Hueschler.
Moeller took over the role as of November 1 and joins Benoit Crombois, Managing Director and CFO, in helming the company.
Before joining Spairliners, Moeller held several positions at Lufthansa Technik AG, including lead roles in Key Account Management, Central Services and Processes, and Central Controlling and Risk Management. Before Lufthansa, Moeller gained experience in the automotive sector in management and sales.
After turning his position over to Moeller, Hueschler returned to Lufthansa after four years at Spairliners. In 2013, he led the company when Spairliners revealed its E-Jet component support and during the development of its latest product SPACE.
Jacques Dauvergne, chairman of Spairliners' supervisory board and Vice President Materials and Services Air France Industries, said in the release: "After a comprehensive search and careful selection process, we are delighted to have recruited Thies Moeller for Spairliners' management board. Thies has more than 12 years of experience in leadership positions within Lufthansa Technik AG and knows best the industry, especially the component business.”
"I am thrilled to be taking on the new role,” he stated in a November 24 release. "This is an exciting time for Spairliners, as the company expands its Integrated Component Care business for Embraer E-Jet aircraft in the Americas. Moreover, we [are also introducing] a complementary and new product to this market. Spairliners Assets Control Enterprise (SPACE) is based on a probabilistic forecasting model for assets. After becoming market leader in Europe for E-Jet component support, Spairliners brings its expertise and experience now to a next level and to an additional market. The combination of proven quality with a future technology innovation will lead us into a next phase of growth."
