FEAM AERO announced the addition of James Kimball as their new vice president of technical operations, based out of their Miami headquarters. Kimball brings 35 years of aviation experience leading multi-site aircraft maintenance and materials operations for organizations including Spirit Airlines and JetBlue Airways.
“In his newly appointed position, Mr. Kimball will apply his years of technical experience and leadership to identify and implement operational improvements across our business as FEAM continues striving to be the best-in-class MRO in the industry,” said Wayne Sisson, former VP of Tech Ops and FEAM’s current COO.
In the midst of an active, global recruitment campaign, FEAM says it is acquiring talent to fill more than 300 positions throughout the country. With the announcement of their second 150,000 square foot base maintenance facility at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) and international acquisitions of Northern Aerotech and BOSA, FEAM continues to grow at an exponential rate both stateside and abroad.
“I’m thrilled to have been selected to join the growing FEAM family and to be a part of the exciting growth of this forward thinking company,” Kimball said. “I also look forward to sharing my experiences as a lifetime aviation maintenance professional to support the team, and to continue the standards of excellence that have become synonymous with the FEAM brand.”
