RLC, the largest privately-held helicopter operator in the Gulf of Mexico, today announced the retirement of President, Rodger Bagwell.Â Dru Milke, who joined the company in September 2011 as CEO, will assume the role of President and CEO.
During Bagwellâ€™s tenure, RLC grew from a small Part 135 operator focused primarily on the refurbishment and maintenance of aircraft to the Gulf of Mexicoâ€™s largest independent helicopter services operator with a fleet of 75 aircraft serving the regionâ€™s leading energy services providers and oil and gas producers.
â€œOn behalf of the entire Company, we want to thank Rodger for his years of leadership and dedicated service.Â We all wish him the very best in his retirement,â€ said CEO Dru Milke. â€œWith the strong foundation Rodger helped establish, RLC is poised to continue to raise the bar for our performance against the highest safety, operational and service standards.â€
Bagwell, who has been with the organization for ten years, will continue to champion the customer focus for which RLC has become known among its oil and gas industry clientele as an advisor to the Company.
RLCâ€™s market momentum has accelerated over the past few months as the Company has secured a significant financial investment, unveiled a new corporate identity, won two major safety awards, added a number of seasoned executive managers to its team and inked a four-year agreement with FlightSafety International, the worldâ€™s leading aviation training company.
RLC, the largest privately-held helicopter operator in the Gulf of Mexico, is committed to being the industryâ€™s most efficient and customer-focused Company.Â Serving high-performance energy services providers and oil and gas producers, RLCâ€™s fleet of offshore-equipped helicopters transport personnel and equipment to offshore production platforms and drilling rigs with the highest levels of safety, performance and service.Â By going above and beyond every time, RLC helps its customers move their businesses forward.Â For more information, visit http://www.rlcllc.net
