Years of aviation experience: 17 in corporate aviation
What makes you most excited about joining the Jet Linx team: It’s a proven model that allows for the delivery of some extraordinary services. There’s an exceptional value proposition for both Jet Card clients and aircraft owners that’s rather unique, and we provide a distinctive set of solutions for private aviation and we’ll be there for the local customer every step of the way. It’s a fantastic opportunity.
What should everyone know about Jet Linx: We offer a multitude of solutions, depending on what you want to do. If you’re an aircraft owner or a Jet Card client, we offer outstanding solutions and the local intimacy that our competitors don’t offer. It’s a blend of a national infrastructure and the local professionals to provide the relationship and care for your needs as they relate to aviation. It’s not a faceless entity, there’s a really personal side to it on the local level.
Favorite thing about Detroit: I’m a lifelong resident, and contrary to popular belief, all four seasons are great! We have wonderful professional sports teams, and we’re fortunate enough to have all four major sports represented – baseball, football, basketball, and hockey – and we have awesome collegiate sports, too. We have very friendly, hard-working, sincere people here that I’ve always enjoyed working with, much like other places in the Midwest. I like everything about it.
Tell us a little about yourself: I enjoy sports a lot and have season tickets to the Detroit Tigers. I went to Michigan State University and have a bachelor’s degree in humanities/pre-law and remain an avid supporter of their sports teams. I’m an avid reader, particularly fiction – I love mysteries and things of that nature. I go to a lot of movies, and there’s something about classic rock ‘n roll that I can’t stop listening to.
