ALOFT Appoints Scott Meyer as New CEO
Georgetown, DE (January 20, 2022) -- ALOFT AeroArchitects announced the appointment of Scott A. Meyer as Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Mr. Meyer was selected to fill the role in a planned transition due to the retirement of previous CEO, Mr. Robert Sundin, after more than forty years in the aviation industry.
Mr. Meyer is an accomplished aerospace and business aviation executive with more than 30 years of experience leading large organizations. After earning his degree and other post-graduate work in aerospace engineering from Purdue University, Scott’s early career focused on leading edge technologies such as solid rocket motor design, advanced material applications for launch vehicles, and aerospace technology-based operations.
In the mid-90s, Mr. Meyer transitioned to the transport category business aviation sector where he’s spent nearly two decades in senior leadership roles including as CEO of startup MRO & Completion Center Comlux America LLC and most recently as COO for the North American operations of Flying Colours Corporation.
“The business, commercial and defense aviation sectors are rapidly evolving and generating new opportunities as we begin to emerge from the global pandemic coupled with the rapidly changing geo-political environment,” said Mr. Meyer. “We see meaningful growth potential in leveraging ALOFT’s nearly 40 years of progressive capabilities and services to create innovative solutions for a broader aviation community. Our Delaware base of operations provides a very favorable business climate for our current and future customers including ready access to the New York-Washington, D.C. corridor with government and the military markets, large corporations as well as a considerable density of high-net-worth end-users.”
Robert Sundin, retiring President and CEO of ALOFT, noted, “Scott is a solid addition to our team, bringing decades of technological expertise, executive gravitas and a practical approach to service excellence. His hands-on leadership and creative problem solving will benefit ALOFT customers and help propel expansion into new and evolving markets.”
