Sabreliner Adds New VP, Planning & Production Control

ST LOUIS -- Sabreliner Corporation has appointed John Kim to the new position of vice president for planning and production control.  He is responsible for developing and implementing a company-wide planning and production control system to standardize capacity/schedule/technical planning and for controlling program activities through a system that tracks progress and performance.

“Together, these initiatives will allow the company to manage its resources cost- effectively and to complete all work on schedule and with the highest quality and customer satisfaction ratings,” said Iain Glendinning, chief information officer to whom Kim reports.

Kim served for nearly seven years in a series of senior positions at Sabreliner’s former subsidiary Midcoast Aviation, where he was vice president-program management and engineering, vice president-production control and vice president-strategic sourcing.
Prior to joining Midcoast, Kim was with Fairchild Dornier Corp., where he served as director of the 428Jet program integrated product team and director of supply chain management.  Before that, he held a series of positions with McDonnell Douglas/Boeing, including lead structural/MRB engineer, resident engineering manager for the Pacific Rim and international program manager for the MD-95/Boeing 717 Program.
