Aircraft part-out specialist ecube has appointed Lee McConnellogue as its new CEO. 

McConnellogue succeeds Tim Schmidt, who founded the UK-based aircraft end-of-life company in 2011 with Mike Corne. Corne will continue to work with the new CEO to further develop the business.

McConnellogue has previously held senior roles at Monarch Aircraft Engineering, Flybe and Rolls-Royce, where he was most recently senior vice president of services operations. He joined the engine OEM in 2017.

Ecube has dismantling facilities in the UK at its St Athan headquarters, where it operates three hangars. It also has a site in Castellon, Spain, which opened in 2019.

The company has set about bolstering its MRO capabilities in the past few months. In February, it was granted EASA Part 145 approval, enabling it to offer aircraft line maintenance and engine workshop services.
