Erickson Air-Crane Names New Vice President Of Global Sales And Marketing

Erickson Air-Crane Incorporated (NASDAQ:EAC) (“Erickson” or “the Company”), a leading global provider of aviation services to a diverse mix of commercial and government customers and the vertically integrated manufacturer and operator of the powerful, heavy-lift helicopter, the Erickson S-64 Aircrane, today announced that Santiago Crespo, a highly experienced and accomplished executive, has agreed to join the Company’s leadership team as its Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing, effective July 31, 2013.

Crespo joins the Company with 20 years of international experience in global sales, marketing, finance and management. He most recently served as the Global Key Account Director for CHC Helicopter, where he was responsible for managing its Oil & Gas business with over $1 billion in annual revenues. Prior to that position, he was CHC’s Commercial Director for the Americas territory with responsibilities that included growing the Oil & Gas business in Brazil and the development of CHC’s US Government contract acquisition strategy. Importantly, Crespo is also deeply familiar with the Evergreen Helicopters’ business, having previously served, from 2006 until 2010, as its Director, South American Sales and Marketing. In this position he was responsible for a number of business development efforts including its oil and gas customers.

Udo Rieder, Chief Executive Officer of Erickson Air-Crane, Inc., commented, “Achieving our vision for the Company as a large, global, and highly diversified aviation services provider will require thoughtful leadership and insight from a world-class team of managers. Santiago’s deep understanding of the rotorcraft business, his experience in both Oil & Gas and government contracting and international operations and his prior tenure with Evergreen Helicopters provide for an extraordinary fit with our organization. We believe he will play a key role in the future of our Company and we are excited to benefit from his experience and expertise.”

The Company noted that Crespo’s career has also included positions where he was responsible for financial analysis, aviation safety standards management, contract management, and supply chain and distribution management. Crespo holds an undergraduate degree in Finance from the Catholic University of Ecuador and received his MBA from the University of Portland. He is fluent in English, Portuguese, and Spanish.
