On Friday, June 29, Meridian celebrated the retirement of Guillermo Escobar, one of the company’s most tenured Ground Support Equipment (GSE) technicians. Guillermo started his career on June 30, 1999, and arrived before dawn – every day – to ensure that Meridian’s ground equipment was running in top condition. His career over the past 19 years has seen a lot of change, including the name of the company, which was known as Million Air Teterboro at the time.
Line Manager, Nehemias Camacho, commented on the technical expertise he demonstrated through his tenure with the company. “He is a breed of mechanic that is hard to come by nowadays”, said Camacho. “He could fix anything. Guillermo is a true MacGyver of his generation. While he will be missed, we wish him an enjoyable retirement and we sincerely thank him for his devotion and commitment to our company for the last 19 years.”
On behalf of everyone at Meridian, thank you and congratulations on your retirement, Guillermo!
