MRO company Flying Colours Corp has promoted Joe Thurman to general manager at its St Louis, Missouri location. This underscores the company's intention to align its St Louis operations more closely with its headquarters in Peterborough, Ontario.

“As the new general manager, Joe will spend more time interfacing with his Peterborough colleagues and supporting the executive team to achieve uniformity of operations across our North American facilities. The goal is to share, communicate and implement knowledge about effective practices from each location and ensure a consistent level of Flying Colours service so that no matter where clients work with us, they have the same exceptional experience,” says president and CEO John Gillespie.

Having stepped into the role on 1 June, Thurman is now responsible for the day-to-day operations at the St Louis facilities. As a member of the senior leadership team, he will focus on optimising the talent within the Flying Colours workforce to deliver projects that meet the high standards that Flying Colours is known for.

“I will strive to meet the expectations of the senior leadership team, while fostering a positive working environment for all our team members. We work in a highly competitive environment, and I'm looking forward to helping Flying Colours continue to distinguish itself by setting new standards of excellence. It's an exciting time for Flying Colours, and I'm pleased to be an integral part of its future,” he says.

Thurman, who has been leading MRO operations in St Louis, has more than 40 years of business aviation experience including operations management, programme leadership and completions engineering.
