Jet Aviation strengthens its Basel completions team

Posted 3 April 2015 · Add Comment

Jet Aviation Basel - well known in the Middle East for its completions expertise on VIP aircraft - has made two key leadership changes to its completions sales organisation.

 
Ruedi Kraft has been appointed as vice president of completions business development, appointing Matthew Woollaston to succeed him as vice president of completions sales and marketing. Both roles became effective on April 1.
The appointments were made to ensure existing clientele and markets are well served as the company expands to meet growing demand, particularly in new regions. Kraft assumes responsibility for developing business opportunities for the Basel Completions Center, focusing on emerging markets. In particular, Kraft will source business leads for VVIP completions as Jet Aviation grows its customer base in new territories.
Kraft has worked for Jet Aviation for more than 25 years and joined the Jet Aviation Basel centre in 2011. He has spent the past four years focused on sales and completions loading, where he and his team have successfully built up a solid backlog.
Woollaston will oversee global sales activities for the completions business. Woollaston joined Jet Aviation Basel in March 2014 from a New Zealand-based firm, where he successfully led the company’s VIP business for five years. He is a licensed aircraft maintenance engineer and holds a bachelor of commerce degree.
