Jet East appoints Mark Daniels as Citation product director


Gama Aviation’s maintenance company Jet East has appointed Mark Daniels as product director for Cessna Citation jets.

Daniels, who previously worked for Cessna for 25 years, will be based at Jet East’s Dallas facility. The maintenance firm said he will “use his expertise and skill set to advance the company’s growth”.

Brian Leitschuck, general manager, Dallas facility, Jet East said: “There is no better feeling than knowing that the Jet East name is being represented by the best that the aviation industry has to offer. Mark’s knowledge, coupled with the relationships he has established, make him the perfect candidate for this position.”

Daniels said: “I believe this is a company that truly values its employees and customers alike. I am devoted to contributing my best to the team and helping the company reach new heights.”

In October last year, Jet East acquired a full-service maintenance facility in Statesville, North Carolina.

The company was acquired by Gama Aviation in January 2021 for $8m to grow its market capabilities and close to double its US maintenance business.
