CAA appoints president and CEO


The Corporate Aircraft Association (CAA) has appointed David Scobey as president and CEO of the US jet fuel discount provider.

The CAA, which partners with FBOs to offer discounted jet fuel to its members, also promoted its acting president of the past six months, PJ Clark, to chief operating officer of the association.

Scobey, who is the retired president and CEO of connectivity company AT&T, will take on the new roles immediately. He has previously served as chairman of the TBM Owners and Pilots Association and has sat on the board of the CAA for the past two years.

“David is the right leader for CAA at this time,” said Joe Budd, chairman of the board, CAA. “I’m confident David’s extensive business management and leadership experience will be invaluable as we seek to enhance and grow our association.”

The incoming CEO said: “I believe we can make our fuel programme even more valuable for our members while growing the number of incredible FBO partners we have.”

Clark, whose role is also effective immediately, has been part of the CAA for almost six years, having served as director of operations and vice president of operations before taking on the role of interim president in March this year. Commenting on her appointment, Scobey said she is “a wonderful leader of our operations and customer service team and well respected by the board, our members, our FBO partners and our employees”.
