Menzies Aviation has appointed its first senior vice president of digital and innovation to drive forward the digital evolution of the business.

Filip Nekvinda has joined the global aviation logistics specialist to lead its digital strategy and drive forward its digital capabilities, with the aim of accelerating the company’s growth.

Key focus areas for Nekvinda include employee engagement, operational efficiency and helping Menzies and its customers achieve carbon reduction targets by digitising processes.

He has experience in areas including digital employee initiatives, automation and supply chain digitisation, and innovation through various emerging technologies.

Mark Reid, chief information officer at Menzies Aviation, said: “We’re excited to welcome Filip to Menzies and utilise his fresh perspective and wealth of expertise in digital transformation as we continue our digital evolution. We are an integral partner in the aviation supply chain and collaborating with customers to help them achieve their digital transformation goals is essential. Filip’s influence will benefit Menzies as well as our customers’ digital journeys as we strive to achieve efficiencies and decarbonisation goals.”
