Skymetrix appoints new CEO

Aviation fuel and cost management specialist, Skymetrix, has appointed a new CEO to lead the company through its next exciting phase: Michael Scheidler.

Michael started his career at Lufthansa and has held senior roles at Thomas Cook, Rivus Fleet Solutions and EO Charging — one of Europe’s fastest growing companies.

He also has expertise in transformational change and data-driven analytics.

Skymetrix was formed following the merger of FuelPlus and Airpas last year and is now gearing up for major growth as it prepares to launch its new, next-generation platform later this year.

The former CEO of FuelPlus, Klaus-Peter Warnke, moves to the advisory board of the company.

Michael said: “I’m delighted to be leading Skymetrix and I’m really excited about our new proposition for our customers and the wider industry.

“We will be able to offer one platform that transforms fuel and cost management for airlines and brings benefits that go beyond profitability.

“We’re focused on maximizing success for our customers, which means working closely with them to understand their goals and challenges, sharing our experiences, and shaping a solution that fits perfectly.”

Ian Wheeler, Skymetrix Advisory Board Chairman added: “I am thrilled to welcome Michael into the role of CEO, and so are Ventiga Capital Partners, our majority investor.

“His enthusiasm and international expertise will be valued assets for Skymetrix.

“We also wish to thank Klaus-Peter who has led the business up to date; we value his continued involvement and guidance on the advisory board.”
