CEPA names Roger Whyte as chairman for 2014
The Central European Private Aviation (CEPA) organisation names Roger Whyte as its 2014 chairman.
CEPA, the non-profit organisation created to support the development of business aviation in Central and Eastern Europe, has named Roger Whyte as its chairman for 2014.
“I have been following the progress of CEPA since its inception and having attended the CEPA Expo, I am impressed with what has been achieved so far,” said Whyte. “The support CEPA provides to businesses in the Central and Eastern European regions compliments the activity of organisations such as EBAA by providing a very specific focus. I am looking forward to working with the CEPA team to help take the organisation and the Expo to the next stage of its development.”
CEPA is holding its 2014 Expo from 19-20 November 2014 and has recruited Roger Whyte to take over from the outgoing chairman, Philippe Lienard.
Dagmar Grossmann, founder of CEO, said: “We are delighted that Roger has agreed to take the CEPA chairmanship in what I think will be a very exciting time in the growth of the organisation and in a year that follows the most successful CEPA Expo yet.”
She added: “I want to thank Philippe Lienard of Aelis Group for his support and hard work in helping to make 2013 such a good year. There are many exciting developments to work on in 2014 and Roger has the experience and skills to help us immensely.”
Whyte started his aviation career in the 1970s and worked for Cessna as senior vice president of sales and marketing until he retired in 2010.
