Hong Kong Firm Topcast Names Wolfgang Tatzer As CEO


Wolfgang Tatzer has been named CEO of Topcast, a market-leading distributor of airplane parts and an MRO (maintenance, repair, and overhaul) service provider.

Wolfgang has more than 30 years of experience working for reputable aviation companies. He most recently served as President of Telair International, the premier provider of solutions for loading aeronautical freight. Prior to that, he worked for Satair for more than ten years, managing teams in charge of some of the company's largest product lines and supporting full-scale international distribution agreements for aircraft system OEMs.

Wolfgang Tatzer said: "I am excited to be joining Topcast at a time of significant strategic momentum. The business managed well throughout what was, undoubtedly, a difficult period for the sector and is now well positioned for growth. I look forward to working closely with the team to continue to build Topcast into a world-class aircraft parts distributor and MRO services provider through market expansion and superior customer service."

Alex Emery, a Non-Executive Director at Topcast, added: "In Wolfgang we have found a seasoned industry leader with decades of relevant experience who will help Topcast continue to serve as a reliable partner with strong product knowledge and local expertise. I look forward to working with Wolfgang and the rest of the team to take Topcast to the next level.

"I'd like to thank Joyce Lee for her leadership of the company over the past eight months, during which she served as interim CEO and Head of Commercial in addition to her role as CFO, and drove a number of significant initiatives."

The hiring comes at a time when the company is seeing considerable growth as a result of a revival in air travel throughout Asia.
