Heliswiss Ibérica appoints Xavier Domingo as new Managing Director

18 Feb 2022

After almost 30 years of experience in the company and taking over from Lluis Freixa, our CEO for the last two decades, Xavier Domingo assumes the leadership of the firm with effect from January 2022.

With more than extensive experience in the sector and a deep knowledge of Heliswiss Ibérica and its business model, as it has been a key player in its design and evolution for more than three decades, Xavier Domingo takes on the challenge of maintaining Heliswiss Ibérica as the independent aeronautical maintenance centre of reference in Spain and southern Europe. Lluis Freixa, for his part, will continue to be closely linked to the company as an advisor supporting the new management with his invaluable and extensive experience.

An engineer by training, Xavier Domingo joined Heliswiss Ibérica shortly after finishing his studies. Since joining the firm until today, he has been part of the strategic decisions that Heliswiss Ibérica has taken to constantly adapt to a demanding and changing market, positioning the company as the aeronautical maintenance centre of reference after the change in the business model in 2012 when it ceased its activity as an operator. With a clear vocation for internationalization, Heliswiss Ibérica’s client portfolio includes a strong weight outside the Spanish market, as well as a marked diversification of business lines beyond maintenance such as aircraft dry lease, the representation of key brands in the sector and collaborations with third parties.

For his part, the new CEO stressed that “it is an honour to assume the leadership of the project and I am fully convinced that we will achieve our goals thanks to our fantastic team of professionals that the company has so that our customers continue to operate their aircrafts”.
