Aircraft maintenance software specialist Commsoft has named Nick Godwin its new Managing Director as part of a management restructuring designed to ensure continuing customer focus at a time of rapid growth.
Godwin has been Business Development Director since joining Commsoft in 2008 after more than 25 years with British Aerospace and Rolls-Royce’s Data Systems & Solutions subsidiary. He will retain his business development and commercial responsibilities.
Commsoft founding co-director Gary Pollak will become Chairman of the Board of Commsoft with responsibility for the company’s overall financial health and direction.
Announcing Godwin’s appointment, Pollak said: “Since joining Commsoft, Nick has clearly shown that he has the leadership and management qualities required to ensure Commsoft's continuing growth while paying rigorous attention to the needs of our customers. I have every confidence that he is the right figure to take the company forward.”
James Stock, currently a Commsoft director and who has played a leading role in the development of its flagship OASES product, becomes Technical Director. He will concentrate on tightening and controlling all technical infrastructure, enhancing quality and customer delivery mechanisms.
Commsoft Director David Pusey, takes up the key role of Project Director and will utilise his extensive knowledge of OASES in ensuring successful customer implementations, training and account management.
Julian Beames, who joined Commsoft in December 2010 as Regional Manager with responsibility for growing sales and contracts, after 27 years in aerospace, becomes Business Operations Manager with a brief to enhance the company’s business processes.
Announcing the new management structure, Nick Godwin said: “As a result of its sustained investment, Commsoft has secured ten new customers for OASES in 2011 in the face of intense competition. We have recently launched significant new aircraft maintenance programme revision management (AMP) and airworthiness directive / service bulletin evaluation (AD/SB) software. Major investments in a new commercial module, electronic non-routine cards (NRC) and single run cards will shortly offer significant benefits to MROs and corporate FBOs whilst new Line Maintenance Control functionality, linked to operations systems and EFBs, is already giving value benefits to airline users.
“Faced with these growth challenges, it has become clear that Commsoft needs to make important changes to its evolving business processes in order to serve our customers worldwide even better and to capitalise on this success. Particular focus will be placed on business operations, more closely linking customer account management to support and application developments. The principal aim of these changes is to strengthen focus on our customers, to improve the responsiveness and quality of Commsoft’s services.”
Commsoft customers will have the opportunity to meet the new management team at the OASES User Group Workshop (UGW2011) at London Heathrow on 30th November.
