PEMCO promotes John Wing to senior MRO manager
Feb 03, 2017: Leading MRO and engineering company PEMCO World Air Services has promoted John Wing from programme manager to senior MRO manager and he will be based out of Tampa.
In his new role, he will oversee all maintenance operations.
As senior MRO manager, Wing will be responsible for the overall operation of the maintenance department, including recognised authority with the FAA and other regulatory entities, new business development, aircraft delivery schedules, manpower and man-hours, budgets, training, and maintaining facilities, equipment and tooling.
Wing brings a background of proven leadership, programme management excellence, and innovation to his new role.
“John is a proven asset to the company; he brings leadership skills that keep all departments in harmony,” said PEMCO vice president of Maintenance Shane King, to whom Wing will report.
Wing, who was recently named to Aircraft Maintenance Technology magazine’s 40 Under 40 Next Gen Awards, began his career with PEMCO in 2008 as a lead A&P mechanic. Over his nine years with the company, he has served as supervisor, weekend-and-night shift production manager and, most recently, as program manager of a major US airline.
“My time here at PEMCO has opened my eyes to the competitiveness of the industry,” said Wing.
“I will continue to build PEMCO’s team by providing strong leadership and support to our already world-class team, and strengthening our customer relationships through trust and dependability.”
Wing started his career in aviation in 2000 with Midway Airlines, including stints at Mesa Airlines and JetBlue Airways prior to his arrival at PEMCO.
He is A&P certified and holds an associate’s degree in aviation maintenance from the National Aviation Academy.
