In May, TP Aerospace appointed Frank Rott new Managing Director of the facility in Germany and Global Chief Operations Officer of TP Aerospace Technics.
Frank Rott is 51 years old and comes from a position as CEO and Accountable Manager EASA Part-145 and Part-147 at Haitec Aircraft Maintenance GmbH. Throughout his career, Mr. Rott has held positions within companies such as LTU, Rolls-Royce and Air Berlin through which he has acquired extensive technical knowledge.
Mr. Rott will be located at TP Aerospace’s office in Quickborn, Germany, but will be responsible for all global MRO activities.
“Strengthened MRO capacity is essential to realising our ambitions for TP Aerospace, and to support this development it has been necessary to strengthen the management structure around our MROs.” Says Peter Lyager, CEO, TP Aerospace and continues “We believe that Mr. Rott’s profile is a good match to TP Aerospace’s strategy, and we are very confident in his ability to carry the technical side of our business to the next level.”
TP Aerospace Technics was previously managed by the local Managing Directors referencing to CEO, Peter Lyager. However, with the continued steady growth of TP Aerospace there is an increased need to standardising and harmonising the company’s MRO activities globally.
