New ATP Owners to Broaden Services
Aircraft Technical Publishers has new owners and leadership and is looking to broaden its focus from managing maintenance and compliance information for aircraft manufacturers, owners, operators and maintenance providers to one providing services that will enable customers to manage maintenance processes end to end. The Brisbane, California, company has been acquired by the Chicago-based private equity firm ParkerGale, LP, which has named Charles Picasso as ATP's new CEO. “I’m looking forward to working with our partners and clients, who can expect to receive the same level of service excellence from ATP, as well as look forward to exciting new developments on the horizon,” said Picasso, whose executive positions have included a four-year stint as president and CEO of IHS, Inc., a leading provider for critical information and insight. In 2005, he led IHS’ successful initial public offering.
