AAR has appointed Timothy J Romenesko as its vice chairman. He will also continue in his role as chief operating officer of the Expeditionary Services segment at AAR, which is comprised of Airlift and Mobility Systems, and as strategic advisor to the chairman and CEO.
This change is part of AAR’s strategic positioning initiative following the sale of its cargo businesses, in which Romenesko played a critical role. Romenesko began his career at AAR in 1981 and served as chief financial officer from 1994 to 2007, and president and chief operating officer of AAR Corp from 2007 to the present. He is a member of AAR’s board of directors.
As part of this transition, David P Storch, AAR’s chairman and CEO, will assume the title and responsibilities of president. “Tim has been a significant and steady contributor and a true partner in the success of AAR,” said Storch. “I am very appreciative of Tim’s hard work and support, and we both look forward to AAR’s next chapter.”
AAR also appointed Steven B Harrison as president of AAR Airlift, which provides expeditionary airlift services in support of contingency operations worldwide, including passenger and cargo transport, aeromedical services, night vision operations, search and rescue, airdrop and other special mission services. Harrison replaces Randy Martinez, who has been appointed AAR’s corporate vice president of strategy and business development.
