Cessna factory

Cessna's production facility in Wichita, Kansas.

Cessna restructure to cement customer-centric approach and quality control standards.

Cessna named Bob King business leader for Mustang, M2, CJ2+, CJ3 and CJ4 jets while Brian Rohloff was named vice president of quality.

“Bob is a proven business leader and has gained broad experience from his time within other business units across Textron,” said Brad Thress, Cessna senior vice president of business jets.

“Throughout his career, Bob has consistently been involved with shaping teams and identifying ways to improve processes while also being mindful of the product, and of the company’s objectives. His strong business focus and demonstrated strategic ability make him uniquely suited for this important role.”

“This is a tremendous opportunity to very directly bring my business lens to the performance of the light end of the Citation product line,” said Bob King.

“Citations represent the most popular line of business jets ever introduced and it’s thrilling to be a steward of that legacy. With our customers’ needs at the center of our engineering excellence, you are already seeing exciting new additions to the line with the planned introduction of the M2 later this year. I look forward to continuing this customer-centric approach for which Cessna is well-known.”

Brian Rohloff accepted the position of vice president of quality with Cessna. Most recently, Rohloff was business leader for the Mustang and M2 jet aircraft.

“My time with the Mustang, M2 and Citation product lines reinforced the fact that our customers place a great deal of confidence in the safety and reliability of Cessna Citations,” said Rohloff.

“My new role will allow me to draw upon that experience as I work to achieve the highest possible standards in Cessna quality. I am looking forward to remaining directly involved with customers, and will continue to strive for the excellence our customers have come to expect from Cessna.”
