Bombardier Aviation has made key leadership appointments at its Biggin Hill service facility in London, including Greg Hoggett as general manager. With more than 30 years of aviation experience, Hoggett has held numerous roles in the industry and most recently joined Bombardier from AJW Group where he was group operations director. Prior to this position, he worked with TAG Aviation Europe/TAG Aviation UK, where he held leadership roles including managing director and chief operating officer. He began his aviation career with the Royal Air Force.
“We are thrilled to welcome Greg to the Bombardier family,” says Jean-Christophe Gallagher, executive VP of services and support and corporate strategy. “His extensive knowledge and experience will be influential in leading the evolution of our Biggin Hill facility as we continue to enhance our customer service offerings in the region.”
With Hoggett's new appointment, Corey Trudgen will continue to support the expansion project at Biggin Hill. He is also taking on a new mandate to actively support further footprint growth opportunities across the Bombardier Aviation services network.
Bombardier is establishing a wholly-owned service centre in Berlin following agreements with Lufthansa Technik and ExecuJet Aviation Group; constructing a new service centre at Miami-Opa Locka Executive airport; expanding its Singapore service centre at the Seletar Aerospace Park and opening new line maintenance stations at strategic locations in the US.
“With the success of our ramp up at the Biggin Hill service centre, we are excited to have Corey take part in supporting the growth and expansion of Bombardier's worldwide services network. He will also support our ongoing improvement efforts to ensure we continue to meet and exceed our customers' expectations and give them even more reasons to bring their jets home,” Gallagher continues.
The expansion of the facility, which was announced earlier this year and includes the construction of a new hangar, is on track and expected to be completed in 2022.
Established in 2017, Bombardier's Biggin Hill service centre is a key support facility strategically located in London that offers tip-to-tail heavy maintenance capabilities on Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft. The site is fully equipped to perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, modifications, avionics installations and paint repair services.
