“Mirus is an exciting OEM that lives and breathes innovation, and their approach of genuinely putting the customer at the centre of everything they do aligns perfectly with my own,” Piazza said, adding, “I am really looking forward to playing a leading part in promoting their seating solutions and have no doubt we will continue to disrupt the aircraft seating market with our best-in-class seating products.”
