Darrell Frey, James Kelley and Jeff Kilgore are all named directors, Savannah service centre

Gulfstream Aerospace has recently promoted
three veteran employees to help manage its growing Savannah service centre. Darrell Frey, James
Kelley and Jeff Kilgore were each named director, Savannah service centre operations.  All
three men report to Charles Celli, vice president, Gulfstream Savannah service
centre operations.

Frey, Kelley and Kilgore oversee and direct
operations at the Gulfstream Savannah service centre and at Gulfstream Savannah
service centre south. Each director will be responsible for a specific series
of Gulfstream aircraft models. An estimated 1,400 to 1,500 aircraft are
expected to visit the Savannah
facility in 2011 for maintenance. 

“We will transition to a model-based
structure in the Savannah
service center over the next four to six months,” Celli said.  “By
focusing on a specific aircraft, these directors and their teams will be able
to leverage their extensive technical knowledge and hands-on experience to the
further benefit of our operators.”

Frey, a 24-year Gulfstream employee, was
most recently general manager, Gulfstream Savannah service centre. Kelley is a
25-year Gulfstream employee. Before being promoted to director, he was the
senior manager, maintenance, repair and overhaul, in Savannah. Kilgore, a 23-year Gulfstream
employee, was senior operations manager in Savannah.
