EAA Sacks Homebuilder Manager
There's been more movement in EAA's executive suite. Chad Jensen, EAA's Homebuilder Community Manager, was released from the post on Friday. Jensen confirmed his sacking in an email to AVweb and also on the Van's Air Force forum. He declined comment on Sunday. EAA spokesman Dick Knapinski said Jensen's dismissal was a "personnel situation" that he could not discuss but he added that EAA is talking with him about another role within the organization. "We're hoping to keep him involved somehow," Knapinski said.
Jensen also expressed hope that he would be able to rejoin EAA. He assumed his former the post in August of 2011 and was reportedly well liked in the builders' community. He built and flies an RV-7 and is building a Mustang II. Before joining EAA he was sales manager at Image Air in Bloomington, Ill.
