Eviation Aircraft has announced that Andre Stein has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer (CEO), and Jeff Hurford as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). The company says the aerospace veterans will lead Eviation through the next stages toward certification of the Alice aircraft, making the electric aviation revolution a reality.

“Andre Stein has been appointed as Eviation’s CEO after more than 25 years at Embraer, where he co-founded Eve Air Mobility and served as Eve’s CEO” according to the press release. “Stein is a seasoned leader with a proven track record in product development, leading the Embraer E2 product and market strategy from definition to certification. At Eve, Stein also led the company’s industrialisation strategy, partnerships and sales, and capital raising, including Eve’s listing on the New York Stock Exchange.

“Jeff Hurford joins as Eviation’s CFO from Cirrus Aircraft where he was Platform Director of the SR1X program. Over his career, Hurford has held senior financial and program management roles in the aerospace industry, including 19 years at Gulfstream Aerospace. He brings extensive experience in leading financial and commercial oversight of aircraft development programs and product delivery.

“Eviation’s Alice, a nine-passenger aircraft, is the only flight-proven all-electric commuter aircraft of its size. Built from a clean-sheet design, Alice produces zero carbon emissions, with lower operating costs per flight hour compared to light jets or high-end turboprops. Orders for Alice now exceed USD 5 billion.”
