On January 1, 2022, Bruno Tricoire and Nicolas Bertrand joined the AFI KLM E&M Executive Committee as SVP Components and SVP Industrial Affairs and Projects, respectively. In the meantime, former SVP Components Benjamin Moreau has been named as the new SVP Strategy and Business Development – a role he takes over from Johann Panier, who leaves to take the lead of the Air France fleet as SVP Fleet Management.
Moreau began his career as a consultant at A.T. Kearney, before joining AFI KLM E&M in 2002. He started out as a project manager in the avionics division, going on to assume various responsibilities including Sales Director for Key Accounts and Head of Customer Services for Components. In 2014 he was named CEO of CRMA, an AFI KLM E&M affiliate specialising in components repair and engine module overhaul, where revenues doubled over the course of his four years in the post. In 2018 he was named SVP Components at AFI KLM E&M.
Tricoire began his career at AFI KLM E&M in 2004 as a Logistics Methods Manager. After occupying various roles in Engine Product Sales, Engine and Airframe Maintenance, he was named CEO of iGO Solutions in 2015, a structure dedicated to line maintenance/light maintenance for the Airbus A350/A330 and Boeing 737 fleets at Paris-Orly. Since 2018 he has been VP Base Maintenance for Air France Industries at Charles de Gaulle airport.
Bertrand began his career at Air France in 1987 as a Boeing 747 fleet maintenance engineer. In 1995 he participated in the creation of the Air France Fleet Management division, going on to oversee the integration of various new aircraft (including the 777-300ER and Boeing 777 Cargo). In 2011 he was named Long-Haul Fleet Director, a role that would involve preparing for the arrival of the Boeing 787-9 and Airbus A350-900. In 2017, he became SVP Air France Fleet and was one of the key decision makers for the rationalisation of the long-haul fleet and the choice of the A220 for the progressive replacement of the A318 and A319.Email Post to a Friend
