LINCOLN, NEB. — Duncan Aviation is pleased to welcome Joe LaCorte as the company’s new Regional Manager for the southeast region of the United States. LaCorte has been with Duncan Aviation since 2003, assuming his current role in Pratt & Whitney engine service sales in 2012. Before that, he lead the company’s Illinois-based Engine Rapid Response team for eight years.
Before joining Duncan Aviation, LaCorte spent six years working as a field representative for GE Aircraft Engine Group and three years as a senior field service representative at Pratt & Whitney Canada. A licensed A&P mechanic, LaCorte also has a bachelor’s of science in aviation management and an associate’s degree in aviation maintenance technology from the University of Southern Illinois. He is also a member and sponsor with the Professional Aviation Maintenance Association (PAMA).
LaCorte has begun his role and will be traveling during the rest of 2013 with Pete Alves, the current southeast regional manager for Duncan Aviation who, after 50 years in aviation, will retire in January.
“Joe has a wealth of expertise and experience that he will bring to his new role,” says Doug Alleman, manager of airframe services and regional sales with Duncan Aviation. “He enjoys face-to-face contact with customers, solving their problems and helping them find solutions for their needs while developing long-lasting relationships. Pete has spent 17 years in the southeast region and although we are all sad to see him go, we know that his customers will be in good and helpful hands when he retires next year.”
