The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) has opened a European branch office in Brussels, Belgium, and hired Brian Davey as director of European affairs.
A native of Ireland, Davey will represent the general aviation manufacturing industry before European institutions in Brussels as well as the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in Cologne. He also will work to promote the continued development of a safe and sustainable aviation industry.
Prior to joining GAMA, he worked for APCO Worldwide in its European Union regulatory and public policy division. Prior to APCO, he served in the private cabinet of Charlie McCreevy, European commissioner for internal market and services.
“General aviation continues to grow in Europe and many of our member companies are headquartered in the region,” said Mark Van Tine, GAMA’s chairman and president and CEO of Jeppesen. “As an international association, GAMA’s full-time presence in Brussels will ensure the association’s long-term involvement in international aviation issues, while helping us to maintain strong partnerships with decision makers in Europe.”
