Jano von Zitzewitz

Jano is an aeronautical engineer with more than 30 years of experience in the aeronautical industry. He started as a Future Projects engineer at MBB preparing conceptual design studies for fixed wing aircraft. After 5 years he became the assistant to the Chief Financial Officer and later to the Member of the Executive Board of DASA for Marketing. He moved to the Military Sales Division in EADS.

He joined Airbus in France as a Sales Director responsible for Asia, Western Europe and South Africa over a period of 8 years. Back in Germany he became board member for Programs and Business Development of the Augsburg plant in the Military Aircraft Division of EADS. He developed strong links to Airbus Aircraft in Toulouse where he was leading the Metallic Assemblies Procurement organisation.

A request for a marketing expert in Airbus Helicopters’ (Eurocopter) first Change Management Program brought him to Marseille where he became Head of Marketing in order to restructure the organisation. In 2012 he was asked by the regional government of Bavaria to set up a technology centre in the immediate vicinity of Augsburg in Germany. He defined and executed growth and operating strategies and consequently, founded a company with shareholders governed by public law.

Jano joined Stanton Chase in 2016 because he believes that at the end it is all about the right people to make a successful change.

Jano holds a Master Degree of Aeronautical Engineering and is a guest professor for applied Marketing, Intercultural Management and some other topics related to the aeronautical industry. He is a keen skier, holds a hunting and Private Pilot licence for helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. He and his Italian wife are living in Bavaria. They have a cottage in the Italian Alps where they are enjoying the mountains and hiking.
