With the new year around the corner, it’s time to reflect on the many great things the Zeevo team achieved over the past twelve months. The #zeevoteam never ceases to pursue excellence, strive for success and deliver the best-in-class solutions to our customers. Our passion for aviation and technology is evident across the industry.
Here are some of our highlights from 2017:
Ringing in the new year — Zeevo celebrated a successful first year in operation. Identifying the overwhelming gap between business needs and technology capabilities in the leasing market, the founding team of former ILFC executives launched Zeevo Group in January 2016. To date, the Zeevo team has grown strong with a roster of more than 30 professionals with expertise in contracts, finance and treasury, marketing, portfolio, technical and materiel management.
Dublin Airfinance Conference, January 2017 — We were right there in Dublin, not only supporting our colleagues, but also blazing the trail with a powerful editorial. Zeevo Group Principal, Karen Curtis, featured in the Airfinance Journal Conference dailies, explored the gap in the leasing market for outsourced IT solutions and enterprise software development.
ISTAT Americas, March 2017 — We joined colleagues and industry leaders at ISTAT Americas in San Diego, where we continued to network and discuss pain points across the industry spanning from technology needs to organizational structure and business processes.
MRO Americas, April 2017 — Joining more than 800 companies over the 3-day MRO Americas conference in Orlando, we were able to connect with airlines, OEMs and a wide variety of aviation maintenance professionals to introduce and highlight Zeevo’s service offerings.
It’s time to delve into treasury management, May 2017 — Zeevo added an abundance of knowledge with the hiring of Sandra Telfare, who has nearly two decades of treasury management experience in the private sector. Zeevo clients now can tap into expertise in strategic planning, design, development, implementation and large-scale systems project management with a focus on corporate treasuries.
Shaping the industry’s next generation of professionals — Zeevo further leveraged its ISTAT footprint by joining the ISTAT Internship Committee in the summer of 2017. Zeevo Group Director of Business Development, Angela Geremia, led the front and engaged Zeevo in the efforts to connect aviation and technology focused students looking to refine their skill sets and gain experience before graduation and entering the job force.
ISTAT interns come aboard — Zeevo kicked off its Summer Internship Program offering various positions to aviation and technology focused students. Joshua Trygg was Zeevo’s first Software Development intern.
Zeevo presence at Annual Chi-Stat Conference — Zeevo team members attended the Annual Chi-Stat Conference in Chicago at the historic Navy Pier to meet and network with aviation finance, marketing and consulting professionals.
Who said forecasting? — To provide Zeevo clients access to an arsenal of supreme knowledge and first-class solutions for aircraft and engine maintenance forecasting, Zeevo brought on Ethan Ross with the unmatched knowledge and expertise he gained at a globally recognized leasing company.
ASA Conference, July 2017 — Speaking at the Aviation Suppliers Association Conference in Reston, Zeevo Group Principal, John McCartney, discussed the changing marketplace and how IT can protect and better a business through focusing on the value of business intelligence (BI) and how BI solutions can drive tangible business results.
New faces, July & Sept 2017 — The summer was not only busy and productive but also brought new recruits to the Zeevo roster – Catie Anaya and Mireya Ramirez.
Catie‘s vast experience as an integral part of the Technical Support team at a globally recognized aircraft leasing company rendered her superior support skills to aid in projects ranging from managing maintenance reserve databases, powerplant and airframe reserve claims, to in-house IT program development and testing.
Mireya’s experience in managing large-scale data projects to digitize and organize sensitive aircraft technical and legal records of 2,000+ aircraft for a globally recognized aircraft lessor is a valuable asset to aid Zeevo clients’ business process optimization.
Accurate and timely data is essential to business success — Once again Zeevo shared its expertise in the October issue of 2017/2018 Airfinance Journal in an effort to explore and educate the leasing industry on the expanding needs and requirements of accurate and timely data. Zeevo touched on the ways to ensure minimal impact on company financials by utilizing the right tools and procedures to overcome and prevent data difficulty.
Thank you again to the #zeevoteam for such a productive and inspiring year. We truly are honored to work alongside our clients, sharing our collective passion for the industry and pursuit of excellence.
Happy New Year!
