“We are excited to welcome Mark into our team,” said EmpowerMX President and CEO Dinakara Nagalla. “His depth and breadth of experience in the airline industry will help propel our company forward as we expand in the coming years.”
Segrest will be directly responsible for all customer support activities and current customer sales including product management, integrations and sales of new product modules.
“We believe that Segrest’s strong business and technical acumen will be put to great use as we ramp up in the coming years,” said Nagalla. “She is a visionary who is able to skillfully translate company strategy into great products.”

Prior to Boeing, she spent a decade with Southwest Airlines, leading software implementations for maintenance and engineering.
“As the world’s airline fleet is projected to grow from 23,000 today to 44,500 by the year 2033, aircraft operators will need to employ optimized solutions to keep up with fleet turnover, new technologies, and changing customer expectations,” said Schulz. “We are here to ensure that airlines and maintenance operators have the solutions they need to streamline their operations, minimize costs, and optimize their processes.”
