André Ebach has joined Viktor Peters as CEO of Nuremberg, Germany-based full service provider Aero-Dienst.
Peters explains: “This strengthening of our management team continues our long-term growth strategy. It means that we will be able to develop our business areas in an even more targeted way in the future.”
Since embarking on his professional career in 2006, Ebach has held various management positions in the aviation industry. Together with his team, he has spent the past five years steadily expanding Aero-Dienst's maintenance division in his role as the company's authorised signatory, head of maintenance and member of the executive board. During this time a new maintenance site was opened in Oberpfaffenhofen near Munich, and the Klagenfurt and Graz locations in Austria and the Landsberg component shop in Germany were all expanded.
After graduating with a degree in aerospace engineering, Ebach began his career with Lufthansa Technik, where he provided support to customers in the US, Australia and selected European regions as key account manager and customer support engineer. During this time he continued his studies, graduating in 2011 as a Bachelor of business administration with a special focus on company management and sales and marketing.
In 2012, Ebach joined RUAG Aviation as manager sales and customer support. In 2015 he was entrusted with leadership of the entire business jet division and its 130 employees at the Oberpfaffenhofen location.
“Our continued aim is to maintain our position as one of the leading independent European providers of business aviation services,” says Ebach. “At no point in Aero-Dienst's decades-long history has the company ever been satisfied with just 'going with the flow'. We have continually adapted to changing circumstances and developed innovations to ensure that we can meet the varying requirements and high demands of the business aviation field. What we do is complex, but we manage to present it to our customers in the form of services with a high customer orientation. This is the basis of the long-term success of our aircraft maintenance division.”
