APOC appoints new vice president, business development - EMEA

APOC, a aircraft, engines and landing gears trading, leasing, company has appointed Pete Allwood as new vice president, business development – EMEA.    

Allwood’s primary responsibilities will be the development and execution of sales and programme initiatives designed to maximise APOC’s growing specialism in narrow-body aircraft and engine support. Previously regional head for Europe, Middle-East, Africa (EMEA) at Killick Aerospace, Allwood will build upon his business development experience gained in the sale, purchase and lease of commercial B737G/A320F narrowbody aircraft, CFM56-5B/-7B and V2500-A5 engines to airlines, operators and MROs. 

“The new role of VP Business Development - EMEA is crucial to sustaining the growth trajectory that we have initiated” said CEO, Max Lutje Wooldrik. “Pete will build upon the success we have generated in a few short years. His focus on end-of-life aircraft/asset solutions and commercial development, has given him an in-depth knowledge of our airline customer’s needs, the services they require and their high expectations.”


Allwood said: “We are seeing signs of recovery however the airline sector is still cautious. Customers are extremely cost-sensitive with all expenditure heavily scrutinised before being justified. My new remit is to work with the APOC team of asset specialists, software engineers and technicians, all of whom are accustomed to doing things a bit differently, to develop cost-effective, flexible and creative servicing and provisioning programme solutions.”
