Rotortrade has appointed Marcello Corrado Salati as the head of Rotortrade ANZ, its new office in Australia that will cover the entire Oceania region.

Salati joined Rotortrade as sales manager in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2015. He had prior international experience in Norway, the Netherlands and the UK, plus a master's degree in Economics and Management of Innovation and Technology from Bocconi University in Milan.

His passion for helicopters, determination and previous successes make him well positioned in the ANZ market and the natural choice to lead RT's efforts in this very important market. He comments: “I am excited to start this new challenge and look forward to developing Rotortrade in a region which has such a deep-routed aviation culture. I am fortunate to be part of a respected company that prides itself on providing high quality services. My focus is on being much closer to operators, supporting them as best I can while bolstering ties with our local network partners and OEMs.”

“We are very happy to extend our international footprint into this very important region, which leads the way in many respects,” adds partner Aurélien. “Marcello has all our trust and support to build up a sustainable market position in ANZ over the next few years. It is in RT's DNA to promote young talents based on performance, allowing them to achieve their full potential.”

Founded in 2012 in Singapore, Rotortrade Services is an independent helicopter dealer and sole global distributor of Leonardo pre-owned helicopters. It carries a broad fleet of aircraft from all major manufacturers, and its range of end-to-end services includes pre- purchase inspections and evaluations; maintenance and retrofit management; and OEM certified pre-owned warranty on selected airframes and engines. The company has offices in Paris, Kuala Lumpur, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Montreal and Singapore, as well as affiliations with exclusive network partners around the world.
