Having grown up in a family surrounded by aviation, Andy was confident from a young age where he would focus his career. Having held sales and marketing positions at MRO facilities in the past, he began to understand the needs of aircraft owner/operators as well as the MRO facilities. Andy's great grandfather, Ray Betzoldt, Co-founded Meyers Aircraft Company in the late 1930's which has sparked 4 generations of aircraft enthusiasts and professionals. This includes cousin Lance Neibauer who went on to form Lancair, along with his grandfather and multiple family members all having ties to the aviation industry.
After seeing the frustration and difficulty surrounding the aircraft maintenance quoting process, co-founder and president Lindsay Nixon decided there had to be a better way. Understanding that time is money, she partnered with Andy to create MRO Insider to save aircraft owners and operators both. Lindsay has spent years perfecting her craft of organizational development and leadership, and is committed to every customer to provide an efficient new process in aircraft maintenance.
