Barfield has appointed Luis Giacoman as accountable manager and senior vice president of operations and quality for its Miami, Doral, Phoenix and Louisville facilities.
He will oversee day-to-day company operations, develop and implement operations processes and monitor company operational performance to meet customer expectations, Barfield said. Giacoman will also work closely with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to ensure Barfield complies with the Agency’s regulatory requirements.
Barfield is an Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) subsidiary in the Americas.
“Luis is undoubtedly the best choice to lead our operations,” said Barfield’s chief executive officer Herve Page. “His quiet force, extensive experience and leadership will guide us through our growth and strengthen our position in the MRO market. I am thrilled to have him as the newest member of our management team and look forward to having his perspective as Barfield moves forward with renewed commitment to our customers.”
Giacoman joined Barfield more than 11 years ago as director of strategic purchasing and subcontracting. He previously held the position of director of technical services and director of supply chain at Aeroman.
