With an ongoing focus to expand worldwide fleet management programs and customer-focused support, Eagle has announced the appointment of Jason Kielau to the role of vice president of sales and marketing.
Kielau comes to Eagle Copters from ATCO Structures & Logistics where he was responsible for leading several business units across North America, South America and Europe, along with overseeing North American sales.
His vast experience in business development, operations, mergers and acquisitions, major projects, and financial performance have positioned him well to operate successfully within the Eagle Copters development team.
“Jason’s impressive background will provide a great foundation for improving the structure and processes in our sales organization,” said Barry Kohler, CEO. “He has the skill set that aligns with our long term vision and will provide a new perspective on growing our sales, leasing, and MRO business.”
A native of Calgary, Alberta, Jason earned a Bachelor of Commerce degree from McGill University, followed by an international career with postings in Canada, England, Hungary and Chile.
“I am honored to be part of Eagle’s dynamic team and look forward to getting to know Eagle’s clients, learning first hand how the organization has, and can continue to add value in worldwide fleet management support,” said Kielau.
“Even after a few short weeks with the company I can understand why Eagle’s reputation is so widely valued in the industry.”
Headquartered in Calgary, Eagle has been providing complete fleet management support to operators since 1975.
Historically specializing in Bell Medium utility helicopters, Eagle has successfully transitioned from a small, family business to a global team of experts, with a network of affiliates in North America, South America, and Australia across multiple OEM platforms.
Eagle’s vision to be the global leader in helicopter fleet management includes a full suite of solutions in sales and leasing, expedited parts shipping, MRO, airframe upgrades, logistics, customization and digital audio control systems.
