Jet Linx St. Louis Rolls Out Red Carpet for St. Louis Association for Corporate Growth Event
Bruce Hoskins, Jet Linx St. Louis Director of Jet Card Sales, offered the St. Louis Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) a high-flying venue for their Sponsor Appreciation night on August 27, 2021.
The St. Louis chapter of the ACG was founded in 1985 and serves more than 350 members including private equity investors, intermediaries, corporate development professionals, lenders, M&A advisers and service providers.
The ACG hosts networking events, corporate executive roundtables and high-level educational seminars to serve as a catalyst for business growth in areas where local chapters operate. On a national level, the ACG was founded in 1954 and currently has 59 chapters worldwide with more than 100,000 professionals that invest, own and advise growing companies.
“I have often said the ACG St. Louis is the very best membership organization I have been involved with in my career. I can always count on meaningful and productive networking, solid real-world speakers and educational events that leave me well informed. I have met a number of great members who I will consider life-long friends, and I think that’s also what makes the St. Louis chapter one of the stronger ones nationally,” said Hoskins.
Hoskins has been involved with the St. Louis ACG for five years and currently serves on the Communications Committee.
“The Jet Linx hangar in St. Louis served as the perfect venue for this event – it was something unique and different, but also allowed for a group of people to interact safely. While we offered up the space, I must credit Amy Ruebsam (CEO of the Midwest Region for ACG and Executive Director of ACG St. Louis) and her team for planning and organizing the event,” Hoskins said. “We are also grateful to our friends at Textron Aviation for providing a Cessna Citation Latitude for static display.”
Roughly 80 sponsor guests of the St. Louis ACG attended the event, which featured a live painting exhibition from longtime Jet Linx friend, Jennifer Hayes, and live music performed by Brent Michael Wood. Gourmet bites were provided by Hendri’s Catering, with a menu consisting of a an exquisite display of Mexican, American and French cuisine.
The members of the ACG St. Louis chapter enjoyed cocktails, networking, and posed for photos inside and outside of the new Citation Latitude, flown in to the Jet Linx St. Louis private terminal directly from Textron Aviation’s headquarters in Wichita, Kansas.
“I have been getting great feedback in recent days – I think we exceeded all expectations. Jet Linx remains happy to host events that bring business leaders together to foster a more welcoming and inclusive community,” Hoskins said. “I also have to thank the rest of the Jet Linx St. Louis team for going above and beyond, once again.”
All attendees were sent home with premium Jet Linx cooler satchels filled with custom jet shaped and ACG monogrammed cookies, all part of the Jet Linx commitment to providing Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star service to clients and friends.
