Andy joined aviation industry when he was 21, starting within airline operations, and he was hooked on aviation from day one. The daily challenges are complex but also very rewarding working in a strong international team, seeking ways to problem solve and help customers succeed. In 2020, he joined QOCO as a Chief Commercial Officer and Partner, having been curious as to what QOCO was doing and what gave them a unique position with an iconic brand name like Rolls-Royce. At QOCO, Graham loves the culture of transparency, openness, honesty and respect as well as unique solutions used by some of aerospace’s best-known brands.

Your name, your job title, and the name of the business?

Andy Graham, Chief Commercial Officer and Partner at QOCO Systems.

How did QOCO get started?

QOCO Systems was established in 2009 by Ilari Neitola, who is currently a Chief Technology Officer and Chairman of the Board. In QOCO’s vision, he combined his two main interests, aviation and IT. Ilari saw opportunities to improve maintenance planning activities through software combining information from multiple sources with an easy and user-friendly interface. He thought that the best opportunity to drive the change was becoming an entrepreneur and that is when and why QOCO was established. Ilari ran the company successfully for many years delivering IT solutions for both the aviation and railway industries. In 2015 QOCO’s ownership was reorganized with Lauri Jämsén Ville Santaniemi and Arttu Kataja joining company. I joined QOCO in the summer of 2020. Since then, due to rapid growth, the QOCO crew and operations have doubled.
