Peter Oncken (pictured), a specialist airline turnaround consultant has joined the executive board to work alongside FAI’s Group chairman, Siegfried Axtmann and the senior management team at its Nuremberg headquarters.
Oncken will continue to serve as managing partner of consultancy Intro Aviation. He first worked with FAI Group when he sold Fly Alpha to the company.
“When Siegfried asked me for my advice on filling a strategic role to review the whole organisation and help handle the next phase of FAI’s growth, I thought I would very much like to do this,” said Oncken. “This is an excellent opportunity to get pro-actively involved in the exciting arena that is business aviation with the leading player in Germany.”
Siegfried Axtmann said: “FAI has grown steadily and successfully these past five years, having developed an impressive technical infrastructure in Nuremberg, including expanding the fleet by four aircraft. There is huge potential in both the air ambulance and air charter market plus opportunities for further growth which we as a group should take full advantage of. I look forward to working with the team to build on its success and help lay the foundations for further growth.”
“I am delighted to welcome Peter to the FAI Group. He brings an exciting new dimension and it is pleasing to have someone of his calibre and skillset join us. With his guidance we can steer FAI into new territories in 2018 and beyond,” added Axtmann.
