NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zeevo Group LLC (“Zeevo”), a business, finance and information technology consulting services firm, announced today that former Aircastle executive, Scott Kopacz, joined its aviation advisory team in a senior management capacity.
Kopacz will support the company’s increasing base of aircraft leasing and aviation clients, augmenting and delivering its suite of solutions to boost the key aspects of client performance, from fleet management, data utilization, and analytics-driven business intelligence to finance, forecasting, and treasury operations.
“Scott’s expertise and professional background are well-matched to our expanding capabilities, which offer effective ways to address the challenges our clients are facing in today’s complex and changing aviation environment,” said Joey Johnsen, Zeevo Chief Executive Officer.
Leveraging the right processes, advanced analytics, and technology to optimize decision-making, minimize risk, enhance internal controls, and increase productivity are at the core of Zeevo’s offerings, which have evolved over the past four years in assisting leading global lessors, according to Johnsen.
In addition to bringing his technical skillset and extensive industry knowledge, Kopacz shares a belief with members of the Zeevo team that “a professional commitment to improving client performance is key to generating creative solutions that coalesce the best of technical, analytical, and management approaches.”
“Zeevo’s growing reputation in the industry for delivering bleeding-edge and best-practice-laden solutions ignited my interest in joining the team,” commented Scott Kopacz, Senior Manager, Advisory.
Kopacz is an innovative thinker with deep roots in the industry, with more that 25 years spent working across a variety of functions including engineering, marketing, finance and senior management, boasting a proven track record in increasing revenues, reducing costs, and implementing improvement strategies.
Kopacz is joining Zeevo following his seven-year tenure as Vice President, Powerplant at Aircastle LLC, a leading aircraft leasing company, where he was responsible for maintaining asset value on a fleet of large commercial aircraft. He also developed forecasting and cost models to predict cashflows, standardized work to reduce turn time, and consistently identified emerging issues driving them to closure.
During his career, Kopacz held several senior management positions in publicly traded companies, including roles with increasing responsibility at jet engine manufacturer Pratt & Whitney, where he spent his last five years as Product Line Manager, successfully tripling in-house part repair content.
