Aircraft and engines leasing, trading and part-out specialist APOC Aviation recently appointed a new sales manager, Karim Grinate. Alongside his global sales duties, Grinate will focus on upgrading APOC’s AOG department in tandem with its enhanced stock inventory of Boeing and Airbus spare parts.
Headquartered in The Netherlands, APOC Aviation’s expanding global footprint includes three regional sales offices in Colombia, Lithuania and Miami. It will be Grinate’s role to strengthen ties with existing customers and build new business opportunities for APOC’s aircraft parts division.
Grinate’s previous experience includes senior positions with Qatar Airways Cargo, Oman Air Cargo and Air France – KLM Cargo. The company hopes his experience and knowledge of the cargo process will lead to APOC’s parts distribution improvements.
“I am excited to join APOC Aviation as they ramp up their business and keep innovating ahead of the market. The new engine division, lease pool and more time-efficient way to serve our customers are great examples of that,” Grinate says. “Also, recent business developments in the Asian market, especially China, affirm our global expansion plans. There are many talented people within the company and it is inspiring to be part of a team that has the vision combined with an underpinning investment strategy to become a world leading after-market business.”
