JSSI, a provider of maintenance support and financial services, has hired George Kleros as senior VP of JSSI Advisory Services. In his new role, Kleros will be responsible for operational oversight of all JSSI appraisal, asset inspection and maintenance event management products. He will also collaborate on commercial initiatives.
“I have no doubt that George is the best person to support the organisation's continued growth,” says JSSI chairman emeritus Lou Seno. “His comprehensive experience, qualifications and industry connections will serve him well in leading JSSI Advisory Services toward continued success and further innovation.”
Kleros has spent more than 30 years in aviation maintenance, working across management, field support services and business jet appraisals. An accredited senior appraiser through the American Society of Appraisers (ASA), he most recently served as senior VP of strategic event management and fleet support at JSSI and has held senior roles with Textron Flight Services and Rolls-Royce North America during his long career. He also serves on several boards including the Westchester Aircraft Maintenance Association and the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Aviation Maintenance Science Industry Advisory Board.
“As JSSI Advisory Services has continued to scale, the operational requirements have become more global and robust,” Kleros comments. “I am proud to take up my new role, as we seek to grow our offering of products and services to support informed aircraft ownership and operating decisions.”
JSSI Advisory Services draws upon decades of technical knowledge, experience and real-world data to assist business jet owners and operators with aircraft acquisition planning, fleet analysis, tax planning, cost management, federal government compliance and more. With one of the largest teams of ASA-accredited appraisers on staff, JSSI Advisory Services can perform independent on-site and desktop appraisals for a diverse range of aircraft and engine makes and models.
