Roger Whyte, who was a senior executive with Cessna Aircraft for more than 28 years before retiring in late 2010, is now the chairman of the Central European Private Aviation Association (CEPA). He succeeds Philippe Lienard, who since last February had been the chairman of the group that supports the development of business aviation in Central and Eastern Europe. Whyte is being tasked with helping guide the organization through its fifth year of growth. He will also draw on his experience in global business development and event management to further position the CEPA Expo, which will be held again in November, “as the leading event in the region.”
