Steffen Bay new CEO of NHV


Belgium helicopter operator NHV Group has named Steffen Bay as its new chief executive, replacing former chief and founder Eric Van Hal. 

“Steffen brings a wealth of commercial and corporate experience to the role of CEO from his successful 20 years career across all aspects of the helicopter services value chain”, says Yves-Louis Darricarrère, president of NHV’s board of directors.  

“His expertise and decisiveness, combined with an unwavering commitment to safety, and relentless focus on competitiveness make him a great fit for NHV and uniquely qualified to move the company forward.” 

Prior to being appointed CEO, Bay served as NHV’s chief commercial officer, having recently joined after stints at Waypoint Leasing, ERA Helicopters and Airbus Helicopters. 

 “I am excited and honoured to be the new CEO of the NHV Group. I look forward to serving NHV’s loyal clients and business partners and to working with NHV’s skilled and committed teams to continue to deliver outstanding and safe operations,” says Bay.

NHV’s main focus is on the energy producing industry, and the firm says it the only helicopter operator that conducts operations in every oil producing country in Europe.
