Paris, Amstelveen, 4 December 2018 - Benjamin Moreau has been appointed Senior Vice President Components AFI KLM E&M, effective 1 October 2018.

An alumnus of the Ecole Polytechnique and the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace, Benjamin Moreau started his career as a consultant at A.T. Kearney before moving to AFI KLM E&M in 2002, where he began as a project manager in the Avionics department. Two years later he was in charge of the Avionics Repairs department, where he implemented a new structure focused on self-sufficiency and increased production performance.

In 2007, in Amsterdam, Benjamin Moreau was appointed Project Management Officer at the joint AFI KLM E&M sales operation. Between 2008 and 2010 he scored major commercial successes as Key Account Sales Director, achieving innovative sales to non-airline customers (lessors, aircraft manufacturers and component OEMs).

From 2010 to 2014, back in Paris, he led Customer Services at the Components Division, where he oversaw operational, technical and contract support for 900 aircraft operated by approximately sixty customers.

In 2014, he was appointed Chief Executive Officer of CRMA, an AFI KLM E&M group subsidiary specializing in engine modules and parts repairs. On his watch, the company saw significant growth, reflected in the doubling of its turnover in the space of four years. CRMA has seen through a number of large-scale organizational projects to develop its operations, such as building additional capacity premises or a leaner self-supportive organization designed to meet the performance levels expected by its customers.

At the time of his appointment, Benjamin Moreau said: "I am honored by this new opportunity within the Group. The Component Services developed and achieved by AFI KLM E&M are internationally acknowledged and valued by our customers for the expertise, reliability and service quality delivered by our people. Our aim is, and will continue to be, to be seen as the privileged partner of airlines for component support for their present and future fleets. With this in view, we are constantly developing the most competitive services for their operations, leveraging our experience as an aircraft operator, our global network, and our high technology solutions. This is how AFI KLM E&M stays at the cutting edge of repairs, global supply chain digitalization, and Big Data applied to aircraft maintenance. We will capitalize on these strengths to preserve our customers’ trust and earn that of new customer airlines, while constantly striving to plan for and develop the products and solutions our customers will need in the future."
