Wingtra, the Swiss drone manufacturer commercialising the first high-precision VTOL drone, has welcomed a new COO in a bid to achieve triple digit growth.
Wingtra has appointed Cyril Halter as its new COO.
Halter will be taking over Wingtra’s operations with a focus on the industrialisation and ramping up production in order to achieve the triple digit growth forecast over the next years.
Halter commented: “Wingtra inspired me with its technologically outstanding VTOL system and the passionate team behind the company’s wheel.
“I have followed their work for a long time and believe that Wingtra has a huge potential to grow even further. Wingtra’s successful market entry last year, fundraising, and rapid international growth were a clear incentive for me to get on board and push the industrialisation process.”
Halter joins the company boasting a raft of experience within the commercial UAV industry. In 2012 he co-founded SenseFly, where he held the position of COO until 2016.
Maximilian Boosfeld, the co-founder and previous COO at Wingtra, is planning to focus further on business development at Wingtra.
Boosfeld added: “With the launch of the high-precision drone WingtraOne PPK, Wingtra team expects to become the most desired drone in high precision surveying and mapping applications. Cyril Halter is exactly the person we need to help us reach this goal. His tremendous industry experience will definitely be put to a good use here at Wingtra.”
