Reacting to strong customer demand, helicopter health monitoring leader GPMS is expanding its team and adding key personnel for certifications and customer success.
Jed Kalkstein, President, said, “Our core aviation product, Foresight MX, is getting a lot of traction. Based on this success, we’ve decided to invest in talent on the program side to speed the certifications that make Foresight available on a wide variety of aircraft. And on the back end, we wanted to ensure an excellent customer experience so we’ve created a Customer Success role to handle installation, onboarding, and ongoing support.”
