ExecuJet appoints Richard Porter in Asia
ExecuJet Aviation Group has appointed Richard Porter as the newly created position of business development and key account manager. He will be based in Singapore.
Porter has more than 23 years’ experience in business aviation, most recently as key account manager for flight operations with ExecuJet in Australia. He first joined ExecuJet in 2005 in the UK and has held various operational responsibilities within the group.
Darren McGoldrick, vice president Australasia, ExecuJet Aviation Group, said: “In the past year alone, ExecuJet’s managed fleet in the Asia Pacific region has grown by 10 aircraft to a total of 18, and we are experiencing a steady increase in inquiries. ExecuJet has ambitious growth plans in Asia, where our reputation for excellence, worldwide service consistency and award-winning operational expertise offer an attractive choice for clients. With his wealth of business aviation experience and best practice expertise, Richard Porter will ensure clients receive the best advice when selecting an aircraft and tailoring an operations package to their needs.”
“Richard’s appointment offers clients a single point of contact for all their ownership needs, from aircraft sourcing and price negotiation, to entry-into-service and ongoing operations. He will provide clients with access to the full resources and infrastructure of the ExecuJet group, spanning aircraft management, charter operations, airworthiness and completions management, bringing our concept of Total Aircraft Services to the Asia region,” McGoldrick added.
The south-east Asia region is also taking new office space in the new office tower at Seletar Airport in Singapore. The move to the new location should take place in early 2016.
