TAMPA, FLA. – PEMCO World Air Services, a leading MRO and engineering company, announces the promotion of John Wing from program manager to senior MRO manager. He will be based in Tampa where he will oversee all maintenance operations. Wing brings a background of proven leadership, program management excellence, and innovation to his new role.
“John is a proven asset to the company; he brings leadership skills that keep all departments in harmony,” shared PEMCO Vice President of Maintenance Shane King, to whom Wing will report.
Wing, who was recently named to Aircraft Maintenance Technology magazine’s 40 Under 40 Next Gen Awards, began his career with PEMCO in 2008 as a lead A&P mechanic. Over his nine years with the company, he has served as supervisor, weekend-and-night shift production manager and, most recently, as program manager of a major US airline.
“My time here at PEMCO has opened my eyes to the competitiveness of the industry,” said Wing. “I will continue to build PEMCO’s team by providing strong leadership and support to our already world-class team, and strengthening our customer relationships through trust and dependability.”
As senior MRO manager, Wing will be responsible for the overall operation of the maintenance department, including recognized authority with the FAA and other regulatory entities, new business development, aircraft delivery schedules, manpower and man-hours, budgets, training, and maintaining facilities, equipment and tooling.
King stated, “I am very excited to have John on the team as an extension of production.”
Having grown up in the aviation industry as the son of an air traffic controller who held a commercial pilot’s license, Wing started his career in aviation in 2000 with Midway Airlines, including stints at Mesa Airlines and JetBlue Airways prior to his arrival at PEMCO. He is A&P certified and holds an associate’s degree in aviation maintenance from the National Aviation Academy.
