The Netherlands, 22nd November 2021: APOC has brought in experienced senior executive, Kevin Wall, to lead its expansion programme in the Americas. His remit will encompass increasing market share for APOC’s growing leasing and asset acquisition business, alongside the trading and sale of aircraft parts, engines, and landing gear from APOC’s narrowbody aligned portfolio. Previously Chief Commercial Officer & Deputy CEO at Dublin Aerospace, Walls’ career encompasses senior sales and engineering roles at Lufthansa Technik and Fokker Aircraft BV.
“The new role of Senior VP Business Development – Americas is of strategic importance as we broaden APOC’s global footprint,” explains CEO, Max Lutje Wooldrik. “Kevin is a highly respected member of the aviation community with a reputation for team motivation and commercial success. He will be located at our Miami facility in the New Year, and I know he will enjoy the challenges that this multi-faceted market will undoubtedly deliver.”
The growth of APOC since its inception some five years ago has been impressive and has attracted favourable attention from both the industry and investors alike so Wall anticipates exciting times ahead. “APOC’s dynamic and entrepreneurial approach towards doing business is refreshing,” he says. “With more than three decades of experience I can see how their attitudes towards service and real-time visibility of stock via their benchmark software applications will resonate well with airlines and lessors alike across the region.”
With recent investments in aircraft spares inventory and larger assets APOC is ideally placed to become a major player in the marketplace. Wall adds, “As the aviation industry continues to recover in the post-COVID timeframe, I anticipate that with APOC’s innovative business model and secure financial status we will be able to not only take advantage of investment opportunities in engines, landing gear and airframe assets, but also to wisely shape our support programmes as airlines evolve and explore new ways to operate.”
