“Our new vision will create tremendous value across the entire general aviation maintenance lifecycle through an integrated suite of ‘smart content’ services,” said Charles Picasso, who took the helm as ATP’s new CEO in 2015. “This unified process management will enable maintenance providers to drive dramatic improvements in productivity, cost savings, and aircraft utilizations, while also preventing costly regulatory lapses. Mark’s deep expertise in designing and executing leading edge, cloud-based SaaS implementations will be extremely valuable in supporting this vision of optimized information management.”
