Nov 15, 2016
Nomad Aviation has announced the appointment of Andreas Pfisterer to the roles of Senior Vice President for Aircraft Management and Accountable Manager, according to Terry Spruce’s news article published at the Corporate Jet Investor website on 11 November 2016. Pfisterer’s appointment to one of these crucial positions underscores the company’s resolve to fast-track its operational and strategic activities.
Pfisterer’s recruitment to these positions was evidently influenced by his many years of management experience in Europe’s private aviation industry. As Spruce reports: “Pfisterer joins from ExecuJet Europe, where he was Director of Operations as well as leading Key Account Management for 11 years.” His impressive aviation experience includes a ten-year tenure as a pilot and manager at Swissair, in addition to a two-year stint as a flight inspector at the Swiss Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA). At FOCA, he was tasked with overseeing the activities of Switzerland’s commercial flight operators.
The top brass at Nomad Aviation is excited to welcome Pfisterer to his new role. Spruce quotes Nomad Aviation’s Executive Chairman and President, Heinz Koehli, as saying: “As Andreas already worked for a reputed business aviation company in his capacity as General and Accountable Manager, he is a valuable and highly appreciated new asset to Nomad Aviation.” Spruce goes on to quote the company’s CCO, Claude Neumeyer, as appreciating Pfisterer by remarking: “He is a dedicated and motivated professional, and I am delighted to welcome him to our team.”
Nomad Aviation is based in Switzerland, from where it operates offices in Zurich and Kloten. The company, which also runs an international office in Sliema, Malta, boasts a fleet of modern business jets. Its fleet features several Bombardier, Embraer, Beechcraft and Cessna long-range jets. According to Spruce, it includes a “Bombardier Global 5000, Bombardier Global XRS, Bombardier Challenger 604, Embraer Legacy 600, Beechcroft Premier 1A and Cessna CJ1+.”
