Flying Colours Corp., an international maintenance, repair, overhaul and completions company, promotes Joe Thurman to general manager at its St. Louis, MO, location. Thurman’s promotion underscores Flying Colours intention to align St. Louis operations more closely with its headquarters in Peterborough, Ontario. Optimizing the facilities and talent in St. Louis allows the company to strengthen the position of the St. Louis facility within the industry while it continues to deliver the highest quality customer service and standards.

"As the new general manager, Joe will spend more time interfacing with his Peterborough colleagues and supporting the executive team to achieve uniformity of operations across our North American facilities. The goal is to share, communicate and implement knowledge about effective practices from each location and ensure a consistent level of Flying Colours' service, so that no matter where clients work with us, they have the same exceptional experience,” says president and CEO, John Gillespie.

Having stepped into the GM role on June 1, Thurman is now responsible for the day-to-day operations at the St. Louis facilities. As a member of the senior leadership team, he focuses on optimizing the talent within the Flying Colours workforce to deliver projects that meet the high standards that Flying Colours is known for.   

“I will strive to meet the expectations of the senior leadership team while fostering a positive working environment for all our team members. We work in a highly competitive environment, and I’m looking forward to helping Flying Colours continue to distinguish itself by setting new standards of excellence. It’s an exciting time for Flying Colours, and I’m pleased to be an integral part of its future,” says Thurman.

Thurman, who has been leading MRO operations in St. Louis, has more than 40 years of business-aviation experience, including operations management, program leadership and completions engineering.
