Jet Aviation has appointed a successor to Neil Boyle, senior vice president of global completions, who plans to retire at the end of May 2019, although he will remain on the company’s senior advisory board. Jeremie Caillet is the new vice president of VIP completion programs.
Caillet is now responsible for the successful execution and delivery of all VIP completions projects, while providing leadership and direction for all aspects of VIP completions programs. In addition, he will collaborate across all operational departments and matrixed global support functions to support the company’s OneJet program. He reports directly to Dirk Sapatka, general manager in Basel, Switzerland.
Caillet previously worked for Dassault Falcon Jet in the USA and joined Jet Aviation in 2008 as engineering team leader. He later assumed the role of key account manager in the former Falcon completions line before taking on a project manager role in the completions center and subsequently becoming director of PMO completions. Caillet assumed his most recent role as director of OneJet projects in January 2017, successfully supporting global alignment projects aimed at driving simplification and effectiveness. He holds a master’s degree in engineering from the Ecole Supérieure des Techniques Aéronautiques et de Construction Automobile in Paris, France, and an MSc degree in aircraft design from Linköping University in Sweden.
“Jeremie has demonstrated exceptional project management and leadership skills throughout his tenure with the company, has considerable knowledge of our completions business and is highly motivated to exceed customer expectations,” said Sapatka. “I have every confidence in his ability to do just that and wish him continued success in his new role. I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Neil for his contribution to Jet Aviation and to extend best wishes for a long and healthy retirement.”
