Flight Schedule Pro Welcomes New CEO, Nick Wegner, to Lead the Company's Next Phase of Growth
[OVERLAND PARK, KS] Flight Schedule Pro announced today the appointment of Nick Wegner as Chief Executive Officer of the Company effective September 1st. As co-founder, Wegner has worked at Flight Schedule Pro for more than 20 years, most recently in the position of Chief Technology Officer. The board appointed Wegner in connection with the resignation of Jasen Barnes from his position as the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
Barnes said, "It’s been a great joy of my life to have spent the last two decades working alongside Nick to build Flight Schedule Pro into a global business together. As I step down from my role as CEO, I reflect with pride on the value we've delivered to our customers and the opportunities we’ve created for our team. While I'm leaving my position as CEO, I am excited to continue working with Nick and the team in my new role as a board member, where I will focus on driving strategic initiatives as we strive to take our company to new heights."
Reflecting on his journey, Nick Wegner remarked, "Jasen and I embarked on this journey 23 years ago during our college days. With his transition to a strategic role on the board, I'm honored to take the helm. Serving as CEO at this pivotal juncture in Flight Schedule Pro's history is both a privilege and a responsibility. Our entire team is committed to advancing an organization that we believe has become a cornerstone of the flight training industry."
Furthermore, Wegner added, "The road we've traveled has been marked by resilience and shared passion. As I embrace the role of CEO, I'm energized by the opportunity to steer our company toward even greater horizons. Together with our experienced team and supportive partners, we'll support flight schools around the world through innovation and by embracing cutting-edge technologies. The challenges the industry faces today are different from those we faced over the past decade and require new solutions. Our path is clear, and our commitment remains unwavering."
Jason Frankel, Partner at Mainsail Partners, commented, “Flight Schedule Pro is fortunate to have two industry veteran founders in Jasen and Nick. The contributions by both founders have been key to the company’s successes to date, and we will rely on Jasen’s continued involvement as a board member and Nick’s leadership as the new CEO.”
Under Wegner's leadership, Flight Schedule Pro is poised for continued growth, building upon its solid foundation. The company has been expanding its product offerings, integrations, and customer service capabilities since securing a $31 million investment from Mainsail Partners in early 2022.
