Robert H. Lewis has been named President and CEO of Pentastar Aviation, effective April 25th. He succeeds Rick Maloney, whose retirement from Pentastar last month capped an illustrious four-decade career in aviation.

We look forward to working with Rob in furthering Pentastar's commitment to excellence in support of our expanding customer base."
"I am honored to join the world-class team at Pentastar," added Lewis. "It has been apparent to me for some time that Pentastar is setting the standard for business aviation in areas such as aircraft maintenance, aircraft management services, avionics design/installation/repair and aircraft charter. The opportunity to lead and help to grow this terrific organization is a profound privilege."
