Vendigital has hired an experienced industry expert to work in the Aerospace and Defence sector to support expansion and compliment the incumbent team by assisting clients as they face the challenge of recovery post Covid-19.
Jeff Kennelly joins Vendigital from Swissport in which his most recent assignment was overseeing the Ground Handling Operation at Birmingham International Airport during 2020. Prior to this Jeff has extensive experience in Aerospace & Defence having held senior roles for organisations such as GE, KPMG and British Airways. Jeff joins with over 30 years of experience in aerospace commercial and military manufacturing, maintenance repair and overhaul, ground handling and airport operations. To compliment this industry knowledge, Jeff previously also played a leadership role in KPMG’s operational excellence consultancy practice.
Nick Harrison, the Partner leading both the Aerospace and Defence and Industrial Manufacturing sectors at Vendigital stated:
“We are delighted to welcome Jeff to the team. Jeff has deep domain industry knowledge, having led many Aerospace and Defence organisations and that understanding merged with Vendigital’s excellence in utilising advanced data and analytics and industry insight is a powerful mix, that can only help our clients drive efficiencies and improved business performance.
