NEW HEAD OF ROTORTRADE ANZ

Rotortrade has recently communicated about its latest expansion with a new office opening soon in Australia covering the entire Oceania market.

We are now proud to announce Mr. Marcello Corrado Salati as the new Head of Rotortrade ANZ.

Marcello joined Rotortrade in 2015 as Sales Manager based out of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Marcello has prior international experience in Norway, Netherlands and the UK. He has a master’s degree in Economics and Management of Innovation and Technology from Bocconi University in Milan, a leading European business school.

His passion for helicopters, determination and previous successes makes him well positioned in the ANZ market and the natural choice to lead RT efforts in this very important market.

Marcello comments: “I am excited to start this new challenge and look forward to developing Rotortrade in this region which has such a deep routed aviation culture. I am fortunate to be part of a respected company that prides itself in providing high quality services. My focus is on being much closer to operators supporting them as best I can while bolstering ties with our local Network Partners and OEMs.”

“We are very happy to extend our international footprint to this very important region which leads the way in many respects. Marcello has all our trust and support to build up a sustainable market position in ANZ over the next few years. It is in RT’s DNA to promote young talents based on performance allowing them to fulfill their full potential.” Says Aurélien Blanc, Rotortrade Partner.

This is the prime platform for buyers and sellers to renew ties, build new partnerships and take off in the exciting Asia Pacific market. Building upon the success of the inaugural edition, Rotorcraft Asia 2019 is landing in Singapore at the Changi Exhibition Centre from 9-11 April 2019. Be there when we land!

Rotortrade has been keeping very busy these past few years and 2019 will be no different.

The company has just announced excellent results of 25 helicopter deliveries in 2018 and the opening of RT ANZ in Melbourne to cover the Oceania market.

Oceania representing the third biggest helicopter fleet globally is also a very active and established professional helicopter market, which the company could not ignore. Having its origins in Asia,  RT ANZ is a natural evolution.

Rotortrade has a well-balanced worldwide presence through its various offices spanning Asia, Europe and the Americas and plans to expand its footprint further progressively. RT is studying further offices in South America, China and Africa as well as additional regional offices in the United States within the next few years.

Rotortrade management explains that while it does have a plan on where and when it plans to open new offices, decisions are primarily based on its ability to identify the right people at the right time to lead these new ventures.  The market is very volatile so we have to be very flexible and quick to take action when fundamentals align but also in case they materially change. “We aim to be well represented globally to be close to operators while remaining a small agile company.”

“Our global expansion is also part of our people development plan to allow talents to have more responsibilities and challenges as early in their development as possible. In today’s competitive market place a company like ours may not be able to provide as much security as some of the bigger players and OEMs however we pride ourselves in giving our people opportunities they might never be able to enjoy in such big companies. We have a performance-based culture because we believe nothing else really makes sense if you want to provide the best and most competitive products to your customers. Clearly we have to stay nimble and keep our outposts efficient and cost effective and most importantly always aligned with the market.”

Rotortrade’s strategy in developing regional offices is not to forego its Network Partners but on the contrary to intensify cooperation in order to maximize opportunities and more adequately support customers.

“We have recently hired 3 junior sales managers currently in training and are in the process of hiring experienced operations and technical personnel. The only way for us to expand and scale the business further is through our people.” The company is also investing in IT solutions to enhance productivity and efficiency internally and with its customers and partners.

On the product side, Rotortrade has equally strong convictions, “while we work hard to secure more remarketing and sourcing mandates we try our best to manage expectations. Our job as we see it is to provide buyers and sellers unbiased market intelligence to assess the value of their assets or determine the most suitable helicopter to meet their needs and to design the appropriate go-to-market strategy. Only if and when we can agree on value and strategy should we go into an exclusive agreement avoiding frustrations and additional costs for all parties involved.”

The international helicopter dealer and distributor Rotortrade completes another excellent year delivering 25 helicopters in more then 18 countries. While the total number of sales is equal to that of the previous year, the product mix favored light to medium twins vs more singles previously.

During the same period the company has secured exclusive mandates or taken positions on more then 30 helicopters. Rotortrade carries exclusive inventory of 40 to 50 helicopters at any given time part of which comes from Leonardo trade-ins. As Leonardo’s sole pre-owned helicopter distributor globally, Rotortrade is the only one offering pre-owned Agusta Westland helicopters with Original Leonardo warranty. Rotortrade has also developed a CPO program with Pratt & Whitney Canada and is thus able to offer nose to tail Certified Pre-Owned helicopters for unparalleled peace of mind.

“Our policy unlike most (dealers) is to offer helicopters we have agreements for.  The pre-owned market suffers from a lack of professionalism and we try to do our part to bring more confidence to both buyers and sellers. ” Says Aurelien Blanc Rotortarde Partner.

Philippe Lubrano, Senior Partner and President adds “Our strategy to provide high standards and assurance to our customers both on the buy and sell sides have translated in an inventory turn of below 12 months rolling average which we are very happy with especially in today’s buyer’s market. We will reinvest our profits to continue our aggressive growth strategy and to continue to work for the benefit of operators worldwide.”

Rotortrade is delighted to announce its latest expansion with a new office opening soon in Australia covering the Oceania market.

With foundations in Singapore and Malaysia and established offices in Canada, France, Mexico and the United States, Rotortrade ANZ will focus on Oceania customers working hand in hand with local partners and OEMs.

Australia and New Zealand jointly represents the third-biggest civil helicopter fleet in the world.

According to the Australian Helicopter Industry Association, Australia alone has more than 2,150 helicopters, ranging from single piston-engine light VFR aircraft to twin-engine IFR machines designed for night and all-weather SAR and offshore operations; more than 3,500 pilots; and more than 2,600 engineers.

New Zealand has one of the highest densities of helicopters per capita with more than 880 civil helicopters, according to the CAA NZ, for a population fewer than 5 Million. Passion for helicopters and aviation in general runs deep.

Positioned on the doorstep of Asia, ANZ and its surrounding pacific islands such as Fiji, New Caledonia, PNG represent one of the most active helicopter markets in the world making RT ANZ a natural evolution and complement to Rotortrade’s global footprint.

“The opening of our Melbourne office will allow Rotortrade to provide much better local coverage to our customers and will strengthen current and future sales across the region,” said Aurelien Blanc, Rotortarde Partner. “The exciting decision to establish a presence in this region builds upon our strategic plans for continued growth and sustained demand for pre-owned helicopters across Australia and New Zealand but also to find more opportunities to sell out of the region making use of the excellent quality of maintenance and operations.”

Philippe Lubrano Rotortrade President pursues “Local operators are amongst the best in the world and establishing a local presence is an obvious choice for any serious player.”
