Innovative aircraft and engines leasing, trading and part-out specialist APOC Aviation announces the appointment of new sales manager, Karim Grinate. Alongside his world-wide sales responsibilities, Grinate will focus on establishing world-class status for APOC’s AOG department in tandem with its enhanced stock inventory of Boeing and Airbus spare parts.
Headquartered in The Netherlands, APOC Aviation’s expanding global footprint includes three regional sales offices in Colombia, Lithuania and Miami. It will be Grinate’s role to strengthen ties with existing customers and build new business opportunities for APOC’s aircraft parts division.
Previous experience includes senior positions with Qatar Airways Cargo, Oman Air Cargo and Air France – KLM Cargo. This valuable experience and knowledge of the cargo process will spearhead APOC’s parts distribution improvements.
Commenting on his new position Grinate said, “I am excited to join APOC Aviation as they ramp up their business and keep innovating ahead of the market. The new engine division, lease pool and more time-efficient way to serve our customers are great examples of that. Also, recent business developments in the Asian market, especially China, affirm our global expansion plans. There are many talented people within the Company and it is inspiring to be part of a team that has the vision combined with an underpinning investment strategy to become a world leading after-market business.”
