Three weeks prior to graduation at ERAU’s Daytona Beach, FL, campus, Zeeb was contacted to maintain a Falcon 10 for Scott Foresman’s corporate flight department. Zeeb flew up to Palwaukee Airport to visit/interview with the director of the aviation department. Zeeb got the job and flew back and forth every weekend. Upon graduation, he drove to New Jersey to attend FlightSafety Teterboro for Falcon 10 training. Two years later, Refco Inc. called and he spent two years there.

A former co-worker advised Zeeb about the director of maintenance position at Management Air Service in Wilmington, DE, where he worked for 13 years until the company closed down the flight department. Zeeb then interviewed with Harrah’s Entertainment and accepted the job as director of maintenance, a position he has held for the past seven and one-half years. During that time, Harrah’s has stayed aggressive as it purchased other companies and their aircraft. In the process, it has been involved with numerous models of aircraft and Zeeb has completed 19 aircraft transactions.

Zeeb has a strong drive for teamwork and with the flight schedule that Harrah’s Entertainment utilizes, there is obviously weekend and holiday assignments. Zeeb schedules himself into the rotation just as he does other AMTs. He is also on the Honeywell advisory board and the NBAA Maintenance Committee. Additionally, he finds time to mentor high school students participating in career days programs to promote aircraft maintenance as a career. He is helping to revise AMTSociety student chapter bylaws. He also serves as the co-chairman of the Golf Committee and was responsible for working out the details to play at Rio Secco Golf Club in March 2009.

Zeeb and his wife Peggy have been married for more than 25 years and have two daughters: Laura, 24, and Caitlyn, 20. They reside in Henderson, NV.
