ST. LOUIS -- Sabreliner Corporation announces key promotions and organizational changes at its St. Louis headquarters and Southeast Missouri operations.
In support of the continuing development of opportunities for the company in the government aviation and aerospace subcontracting areas, D. J. "Jim" Meier is promoted to senior vice president, government and subcontracting services. He previously served as vice president, government services.

"These moves recognize the contributions of individuals, the growth of our government and subcontracting business and the opportunities ahead for Sabreliner in such markets as commercial Learjet 30 series service and helicopter support," says Lamoreux.
