General Manager – JSSI Parts

Jet Support Services, Inc. is seeking a well-qualified General Manager - JSSI Parts to be based initially at our Chicago, IL corporate headquarters, but will operate out of our Buffalo Grove, IL facility upon completion of that facility..

Company Description:

Founded in 1989, Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI) is the world’s largest independent provider of hourly cost maintenance programs for aircraft engines and airframes, and supply chain solutions. JSSI provides its clients with comprehensive, flexible and affordable financial tools for managing the often unpredictable costs of operating and maintaining nearly all types of turbine-powered aircraft, including jets, turbo-props and helicopters. JSSI serves clients around the world by managing maintenance services through its international network of technical advisors.

JSSI has always been deeply committed to providing its clients with the highest standard of service and excellence. Our management team is adding further value by developing innovative products and services and expanding into additional markets.

Position Summary:

The General Manager - JSSI Parts will partner with the leader of the Parts business, the Senior Director of Procurement, to successfully accomplish two main goals of the business: (1) to lower the cost of JSSI maintenance events; and (2) to optimize third party selling and buying of parts. The General Manager will work collaboratively with internal and external resources to ensure that best practices are identified and implemented, that JSSI Parts is capitalizing on every profitable opportunity, and that team learning and growing is both relevant and ongoing. The General Manager will provide daily oversight to the overall operations of the JSSI Parts Team in two critical areas: (1) Leadership & Strategy; and (2) Operational Excellence.

Operational Excellence

  1. Support the Purchasing Team by establishing enhanced procedures with respect to finding target aircraft for acquisitions, overseeing financial analyses of such aircraft and the ultimate purchase, dismantling, and re-selling of serviceable parts on such aircraft
  2. Drive core supply chain performance including delivery cost and quality
  3. Create vendor matrix to manage vendor and quality control to ensure that parts are sourced, re-sold and dispatched at an optimal level
  4. Serve as JSSI’s subject matter expert on IT systems which manage parts entry, purchase, and resale (i.e. Quantum or other applicable systems)
  5. Continue to develop expertise on technical aspects of the various engines, APUs and airframes that the JSSI Parts and Purchasing Team handles
  6. Support JSSI Parts team with needed focus and attention to process development, analytics structure and best practices
  7. Identify additional parts distribution channels to ensure consistent growth in JSSI Parts’ revenues
  8. Lead implementation and documentation of best practices, strategies, policies and procedures for purchasing, logistics and key deliverables
  9. Identify opportunities across business unit to leverage spend and relationships
  10. Identify big picture strategies and opportunities to increase revenue from surplus spares buying and selling
  11. Reduce costs of maintenance events through utilization of existing JSSI Parts inventory
  12. Support JSSI’s Technical Services Team by forecasting and supplying parts and components for future JSSI scheduled maintenance events
  13. Serve as point of contact with Maintenance and Repair Organizations, with an end-goal of establishing significantly favorable pricing terms through Memoranda of Understanding
