Air ambulance service provider REVA has announced the promotion of Shannon Schell to Chief Executive Officer from his post as President of the company.

Schell succeeds Stuart Hayman, Co-Founder of the company, who will be stepping down after 22 years of service. Under Hayman’s guidance, the company grew from one aircraft, three employees and one base of operations to more than 20 aircraft at four bases of operations with over 350 employees. Hayman will continue to serve in an advisory capacity and remain on the board of directors.

“Stuart is a pioneer of the air ambulance industry,” Schell said. “I see my job as cultivating REVA’s strengths such as client service and safety, and ensuring we remain the company that sets the industry standard for years to come.”

Schell joined REVA as Chief Operating Officer in 2015 and was promoted to President in 2017. During his time at the company, he made significant improvements to the company’s operational performance and implemented industry-leading metrics reporting, among other important improvements.

“I’m leaving a great company in great hands,” Hayman said. “REVA will always remain focused on its mission to lead the industry in providing the highest quality patient care and relentless focus on safety for our patients, customers and employees.”

In the end, Schell said, the key to REVA’s success has been its people. “The REVA team and the customers I’ve had the opportunity to work with over the past four years are some of the best people in the business,” he said. “Working alongside this group will be a pleasure.”
