GENEVA, 07 December 2015 – SITA today announced that David Lavorel, currently SITA’s Senior Vice President for Corporate Development and CEO Office, has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of SITAONAIR effective 1st January 2016.

David Lavorel has been appointed CEO of SITAONAIR effective 1st January 2016
Francesco Violante, CEO of SITA, said: “During his five year tenure leading OnAir, which became SITAONAIR in January of this year, Ian has grown the Company and positioned it as a leading provider of nose-to-tail connected aircraft solutions.  I would like to thank Ian for his hard work and dedication and wish him the best in the next phase of his career.”

David Lavorel joined SITA in 2000 holding pivotal roles as Head of the France Telecom Partnership management and as Vice President Mergers and Acquisitions before being appointed as Senior Vice President for Corporate Development and CEO office in 2012.
