AJW elevates Gavin Simmonds to COO

27 Jul 2017

AJW Group has announced the promotion of Gavin Simmonds to Chief Operating Officer following five years of success as General Manager of AJW Technique - the maintenance hub for the Group's component repair and overhaul service.

Simmonds, whose promotion takes effect immediately, will report to AJW Group’s President and CEO, Christopher Whiteside.

He will work closely with AJW’s Chief Technical Officer, Dave Lewis, and be accountable for all aspects of strategic inventory management including planning, vendor spend, MRO vendor services, freight, warehouse, distribution and information technology services.

He remains General Manager for AJW Technique, the Montreal-based state-of-the-art maintenance, repair and overhaul facility which celebrates its fifth birthday this month and has grown to employ 200 people.

Christopher Whiteside, President and CEO of AJW Group, said: “We are very proud of what AJW Technique has accomplished over the last five years and it is a natural evolution for Gavin, having successfully led our Montreal facility, to take wider responsibility for MRO activities across the Group.

“His new role will encompass a lean initiative for our business with automation at the forefront of that and, with his proven track record, I’ve no doubt he will achieve great success.”
