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.
