Tom de Geytere Becomes MD of AJW Aviation Singapore

Tom de Geytere has taken up the position of Managing Director at A J Walter Aviation Singapore Pte Ltd. His primary task will be to develop the organisation’s regional presence from a responsive sales unit to a highly skilled business operation with autonomous responsibility for customer liaison and the development of unique solutions to suit the creative and diverse business models of airlines operating across the wide region.
His extensive industry experience enables De Geytere to provide a holistic view of the airline value chain. This has been honed by executive positions in Asian and European airlines in the fields of advisory services and business development for start-ups and legacy carriers. De Geytere joins the team AJW Aviation Singapore from Air Via, where he was CEO for the past four years responsible for restructuring the loss-making Bulgarian charter airline. In tandem with this role, De Geytere consulted on a variety of projects globally and across cargo, legacy and start-up airlines.
Before that, he undertook a number of senior roles with Cargolux Airlines rising from business analyst to internal auditor, and ultimately adviser to the President and CEO on business development and organisational engineering.
Fluent in English, French, Dutch and conversational German, De Geytere is an MBA and served in the Belgian Airforce as an officer and pilot.
De Geytere’s appointment is an indicator of the importance that AJW places upon the whole AsiaPAC region and Group President, Christopher Whiteside, is confident that he has engaged a kindred spirit. “Tom is accustomed to finding ways to deliver customer value that look beyond traditional services and solutions. He is innovative and entrepreneurial in his approach and relates to AJW’s vision and the relentless pursuit of excellence, without losing the personal touch.”
