With over 24 years of experience in aviation having worked for companies such as United Offshore Aviation (UOA) and Thai Airways and 16 years in various management positions in national and international organisations, Pich brings a wealth of knowledge in various business areas to ASQS. He holds both a fixed-wing and rotary wing license (Thai and Canadian ATPL(H)), has longstanding experience in offshore helicopter and commercial flight operations, as well as in quality and safety management, which he has further expanded in the scope of his activities as aviation safety management system consultant. Pich serves as a member in several of the national and international helicopter operation committees including the Thai Pilot Association Technical Committee (Helicopter Operations), Helicopter Association International (HAI – globally the largest helicopter association), the IFALPA Helicopter Committee as well as the International Society of Air Safety Investigators.

In his new role Pich will be responsible for further business development in Asia, the Middle East and the Pacific regions driving sales activities and further growth of the company, following his predecessors Larisa Patrascu and Jonathan Frey. “ASQS is still growing in the APAC region as well as the Middle East, and the markets still offer a lot of potential,” said Pich. “Thanks to the efforts of Larisa, Jonathan and the entire team of the ASQS Group, we are in a good position to further grow our business. I look forward to working with the entire crew to capitalise on the market opportunities ahead.”

Current Director Business Development APAC, Jonathan Frey, who has led the ASQS Bangkok office since the beginning of 2020, will take on a new role within the ASQS Group from August 2022.
