Comlux America names new chief executive

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indianapolis-based Comlux America, which operates an aircraft completion and maintenance center near Indianapolis International Airport, has a new CEO, the company announced Wednesday.

Jim Soleo, a 35-year veteran in the aviation industry who joined Comlux in 2010 as vice president of operations, has been promoted to CEO.
 
Soleo replaced David Edinger, who was named executive vice president of Zurich, Switzerland-based Comlux Management AG. Edinger had been CEO of Comlux America since its founding in 2008.

Both Comlux America and Comlux Management are divisions of Comlux The Aviation Group, also based in Zurich.

Comlux The Aviation Group provides aircraft management, VIP charter services, aircraft sales and acquisitions, cabin designs and completions, engineering services, maintenance, and avionics design and integration.

Comlux America informed the state in January that it planned to lay off 79 employees because of a “work slowdown.” More than 300 employees worked at Comlux America as of late October.

    I have worked twice for this company in a four year period. My advice is to run as far away from it as possible. There is absolutely no honesty from the management department and, believe me, false 'family business' promotions is in no way truthful to what they say. If you live in Indiana and have experience in cabinetry or finish work, they will not hire you because you do not have 'aircraft experience'. One can expect to work endless amounts of overtime and if you have a family, to bad! All of this is my opinion, but it is EXTREMELY accurate!

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
