Despite the challenges of a busy career and raising three boys, Derick made time to earn a Diploma in Business Management in 2004.
In 2015, Derick returned to ExecuJet in Johannesburg and later ExecuJet Nigeria.
“As Acting Base Maintenance Manager, I was largely responsible for up to 25 business aircraft on any given day. It was a rewarding role that really enabled me to draw on everything I’d learned about the business up to that point.”
In 2018, Derick moved to Lanseria Jet Center in Johannesburg as Logistics and Base Maintenance Manager, responsible for up to 45 business aircraft. And, for the first time, he became a TRAXXALL client.
“I’m in a fairly unique position. Before I joined the TRAXXALL team, I was a TRAXXALL client. And, having used almost every maintenance tracking system on the market, I can say with confidence that TRAXXALL offers the best service in the business. I know that from my own hands-on experience.”
In 2019, Derick and his family returned to the UK. In 2020, Derick joined TRAXXALL.
