Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) joint venture company Bonus Tech – a specialist in engine teardown – has appointed David Lamoureux as chief executive officer.
The appointment became effective on 1 July. Lamoureux succeeds Aurélie Kergoat, who spent five years in the role.
Bonus Tech is based in Miami, US. AFI KLM E&M noted that engine teardown facilitates the generation of used serviceable and repairable material from end-of-life engines and is “a key enabler of circularity in engine materials, contributing to the drive for sustainability in the aviation industry”.
“I want to warmly thank and commend Aurélie for the leadership she has demonstrated, for her tireless efforts and for the fantastic shape in which she hands over Bonus Tech into David’s hands,” said AFI KLM E&M’s SVP group engines product and Bonus Tech board member Michael Grootenboer. “I want to welcome David to the Bonus Tech family. I am fully confident that with his extensive knowledge and experience he will continue the development and success of the company.”
Lamoureux has 15 years of experience in the MRO engine business at AFI KLM E&M, having covered dedicated logistics, asset lifecycle management, engine maintenance operations and most recently serving as technical sales director for CFM56-5 and GE90 engine maintenance services worldwide.
