Swiss-based aviation services provider Jet Aviation has tapped Norbert Marx as senior vice president and general manager of the company’s Basel unit. Marx succeeds 34-year company veteran Rainer Albecker, who will remain with Jet Aviation’s completions operation.

According to the company, under Albecker’s watch, Jet Aviation Basel was established as one of the world’s leading completions and maintenance facilities, particularly with regard to widebody aircraft.

Prior to joining Jet Aviation as vice president of completions and modifications and deputy general manager in 2006, Marx served as president and CEO of Lufthansa Technik Tulsa Corp. in Tulsa, Oklahoma. With nearly 30 years of industry experience, Marx has a wide background in VIP completions, aircraft overhaul and component maintenance–notably with Lufthansa Technik in Germany and Ameco Beijing in China.

He holds a degree in aeronautical engineering from the University of the Armed Forces in Munich, Germany.
