ExecuJet MRO Services Europe appoints Matthijs Hutsebaut as regional VP


ExecuJet MRO Services Europe has appointed Matthijs Hutsebaut as regional vice president for Europe.

In his new role, Hutsebaut will be responsible for growing ExecuJet MRO Services Europe — a wholly owned subsidiary of Dassault Aviation — through more heavy maintenance work and by continuing to expand its AOG and line maintenance business. 

Hutsebaut first joined the company in February 2020 as finance manager. In 2021, he was promoted to finance director, which was his last held position before this latest appointment. He succeeds Christophe de Coppel who is now Dassault Aviation’s MRO sales director for Europe, Middle East and Africa, as well as Asia Pacific.

“We’re qualified and certified to respond to AOGs anywhere in the world, and that’s how we aim to get more heavy maintenance work,” said Hutsebaut. “Responding to an AOG efficiently and getting the aircraft airworthy and quickly back into operation, develops a strong bond with the customer, creating an opportunity for us to secure scheduled heavy maintenance work later on. I look forward to the new role and working closely with the team and customers, existing and new.”

ExecuJet MRO Services Europe has an MRO centre at Brussels International Airport that handles AOGs throughout Europe and Africa and line maintenance. It has another facility in the northern Belgium town of Kortrijk that does mostly heavy maintenance work, including heavy checks on Cessna Citations and various Dassault aircraft types like the Falcon 7X and 8X.
