Zurich / Switzerland, March 01, 2012 – Jet Aviation has recently announced the appointment of Gary Dolski as the new vice president and general manager of the company’s MRO & FBO facility in Singapore, including responsibility for the Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur facilities.
Jet Aviation has appointed Gary Dolski to assume leadership of its maintenance and FBO facility at Singapore’s Seletar airport effective March 12, 2012, reporting to Christof Späth, senior vice president of MRO & FBO services within EMEA & Asia. Dolski will replace Philippe Crevier, who has resigned from the position but will remain with the company to assist Dolski through the transitional handover.
Dolski launched his career at Bristol Aerospace in 1981 managing projects in support of commercial and military programs. A 30-year veteran of the aerospace industry, he joins Jet Aviation from Mesa, Arizona-based MD Helicopters, where he served as vice president of customer support. Previously, Dolski spent nearly 20 years with Bombardier Aerospace in various senior management roles including business development and strategy, aftermarket sales and customer support, supply chain and contract management, and finance. He studied Sciences at the University of Manitoba and holds a certificate in business administration from Red River Community College in Winnipeg, Manitoba, with further management studies at the University of Winnipeg as well as at McGill University in Montreal.
“Philippe Crevier made great strides in laying the groundwork for future expansion. His dedication, commitment and valuable experience resulted in a much improved level of customer satisfaction. We wish him continued success,” says Späth. "Gary Dolski brings vast experience to his new role, including a specific focus on new and emerging markets. I have every confidence in his ability to further develop our services in the region and to direct one of our key MRO & FBO facilities in the growing Asia Pacific market.”
