Hawker Pacific sets up sales brokerage in Singapore
Hawker Beechcraft has set-up a new brokerage arm based at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore and is led by Paul van der Blom, who was recently appointed by Hawker Pacific to focus on business aircraft trading in Asia.
Tony Jones, chief operating officer for Asia said: ”Hawker Pacific has a very experienced management team and a strong reputation within the region as an aircraft sales and support company. We have been developing additional services around our client’s needs like expanding our FBO network and, more recently, with the addition of our Aircraft Management business, so it makes perfect sense to expand our offering to include the brokerage and acquisition service. Already our clients have recognised there is real value with this integrated approach and working with a trusted partner. Aircraft sales is already a very active part of our business and this service builds on this whilst leveraging on our other strengths.”
Jones continye “Paul van der Blom is a welcome addition to the team and brings a number of strengths that leverage Hawker Pacific’s existing capabilities The company is already a leader in aircraft maintenance and support, logistics and FBO services and, while the company has been active in brokerage for a long time, we now have the added benefit of a specific brokerage arm targeting the long range, large cabin business aircraft segment. Hawker Pacific’s ultimate objective is to tick every box when it comes to the life of an aircraft and the needs of our of our customer.”
