After 27 years at American Airlines, Dan Teters
has been named Senior MRO Manager at PEMCO World Air Services, a leading aviation maintenance and conversion company. Teters oversees Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul in the company’s two main hangars, located at Tampa International Airport.
Teters relocated from Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he had been in fleet management with American Airlines for the past six years. "I really missed the maintenance side,” he said of joining PEMCO. “That’s where I feel the most at home."
Teters reports to Shane King, PEMCO’s Vice President of Maintenance.
“We’re really pleased to have Dan on board,” King said. “To have someone with that type of ground-up as well as management experience — and whose approach is very hands-on — is a big asset for the company.”
In 1989, then-TWA hired Teters as a painter. During his career at TWA/American, he worked as a mechanic in virtually every specialty, as well as in backshops and aircraft structure. He spent 18 years in management, including Director of Overhaul in Kansas City. At American, Teters became immersed in Lean management, which is PEMCO’s philosophy. "I'm a big lean supporter," he said.
