Auckland, New Zealand, September 11th, 2020
Salus Aviation, parent company of Oceania Aviation, is pleased to announce the appointment of Greg Edmonds as the group’s new Chief Executive Officer. Greg took on the role in August 2020. The board of directors is confident that Greg’s extensive leadership experience in both the public and private sectors will allow him to successfully steer Salus Aviation through the next phase of growth, building on the strong structure that the group’s departing CEO, Nick Mair has created.
James Sclater, Chairman of the board of Salus Aviation says of the appointment “Greg is a collaborative, highly skilled leader proven within the strictly regulated transport industry. We look forward to seeing Greg continue to drive sustainable sales growth in the next phase of our journey, as we navigate the impacts of COVID-19 on the general aviation industry.”
Greg comes from a strong leadership background spanning across construction, aviation and transport. He was most recently the Executive General Manager for New Zealand at SRG Global, overseeing large scale engineering and construction projects for one of Australasia’s most innovative asset maintenance companies. Prior to SRG Global, Greg led the delivery of Auckland Transport’s $100M AT Hop ticketing system as their Chief Operating Officer. He spent a number of years with New Zealand’s largest commercial airliner Air New Zealand, leading the development of a Trade Partnership programme for Air New Zealand China and prior to that as the International Airports Manager for the airline in New Zealand.
Greg’s wealth of executive experience in leading large, complex organisations is being welcomed as the Salus Aviation group strives to achieve new levels of growth while focusing on safe, compliant and reliable operations across its aviation businesses.
