Handoff - Signature: Bruce Van Allen to Michael Scheeringa

 - December 29, 2009, 4:30 AM

Under new president Michael Scheeringa, who took over from Bruce Van Allen early this year, Signature Flight Support has changed its approach to the FBO market. With 102 FBOs worldwide (81 wholly owned), Signature was perceived as inflexible when it came to pricing fuel and in the way it charged ramp fees. The company tackled those issues with a new value pricing system, and during the recession Signature Flight Support outperformed the rest of the industry, according
to Scheeringa.
