In his new position, Lentell will foster communications between Duncan Aviation and Bombardier by promoting greater collaboration among the various departments and facilities and cultivating a single-team environment to make our customers’ experiences even more satisfying.

“With Matt’s diverse experiences here at Duncan Aviation, we feel he brings a unique perspective to this position that will prove invaluable in building the Bombardier program and helping direct it to meet all future opportunities and demands,” says Vice President of Customer Service Doug Alleman. “He’ll analyze feedback and communicate those results to the rest of our teams so we can continue to improve our customers’ experiences.”

In his new role as the Bombardier Program Manager, Lentell will lead focus groups that involve production and customer service personnel in an effort to identify areas for improved and enhanced service. He’ll also work with technical teams to review product road maps so we can better assist and advise customers about future technologies and upgrades.

“I’m excited about working more closely with the many great professionals here at Duncan Aviation through the Program Manager position,” says Matt. “Having a program-specific focus on the Bombardier product line will enhance our vision for the program and allow us to capture and understand our customers’ expectations on a deeper level. It’s important for us to work alongside our customers, vendors, and the OEM to identify key enhancements and solutions that deliver what our operators need and make it easier for them to do business with Duncan Aviation and throughout the industry.”

In 1997, Lentell started his career at Duncan Aviation as a Cabinet Specialist in the Interior Shop.
