TRAXXALL, the aircraft maintenance tracking company, has hired four analysts from rival firm SkyBOOKS to launch its new Florida office.

James Cook, Jeremy Figus, Toby Martin and Michael Shelton all join from SkyBOOKs. Ryan Kraus moves to TRAXXALL from Gulfstream, where he was a senior analyst.

“We are very pleased to announce the opening of our new office in Florida and – more importantly – to welcoming our new members to the team,” says Mark Steinbeck, president, TRAXXALL (pictured). “Our recent growth and success is testament to the hard work of everyone at TRAXXALL. In order to continue delivering exceptional service to our clients while pursuing a growing share of the market, we needed to recruit industry experts to complement our existing team.

The Jacksonville office is headed by Jeff Dougherty, maintenance analyst, and Dewayne James, regional sales director for the southeast US – both have worked for TRAXXALL for several years.

“The concentration of aircraft maintenance tracking expertise in Florida made it an obvious location,” said Steinbeck. “Our new office will provide a home for these talented individuals. Together, we look forward to our shared success and growth in 2017.”
