MHS Aviation fills crucial executive position

MHS Aviation has successfully completed the recruitment of a communications manager for its Munich office. According to a news article published at the European Business Air News (EBAN) website on 18 August 2016, the Munich-based company confirmed Petra Steffen’s appointment “as manager of communications and international key accounts.”

Steffen’s recruitment to the crucial corporate communications position is a major achievement for the company considering her many years of experience in the charter services marketing domain. She has previously served in top marketing management positions in various private aviation companies in Germany. The EBAN website reports: “Steffen has 15 years’ experience in business aviation, and prior to this position, she worked as marketing and public relations specialist with refurbishment facility OHS Aviation Services and with Vibroair as sales and marketing director.”

Her long resume in the aviation marketing business spans across several other global brands, which include ASG, Aviation Investment, DC Aviation and Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services. Steffen’s roles largely involved the provision of support services for the marketing functions of the four aviation entities. The experience that she gained along with the networks that she built during her stints in these companies will provide her with the needed market insights required to navigate successfully in her current posting.

Steffen expressed confidence in her ability to deliver on her current mandate as MHS’ communications manager. She is optimistic that she will help the company achieve greater heights in its efforts to expand existing markets and exploit new market opportunities. The EBAN website quotes Steffen as commenting: “I am looking forward to working with a strong and growing business aviation operator that offers excellent conditions and presents a great fleet to the market.”

MHS Aviation runs business jet operations in Germany. Its fleet of business jets comprises a wide variety of aircraft and ranks as one of the largest in the country.
