JetHQ appoints Ted Farid as chairman
Ted Farid has joined JetHQ, the Middle East broker, as its first chairman.
Farid has worked for 47 years at OEMs including Cessna, Learjet and Beechcraft.
Garett Jerde, manging director of JetHq says: “I really enjoyed working with Ted at Hawker Beechcraft. He is the proverbial font of aviation knowledge – always willing to lend his five decades of expertise and knowledge to help get a deal across the line. He will now bring that sage wisdom and consultative approach to secure the best possible solutions for our clients.”
JetHQ was founded in order to simplify the process and reduce the complexity of international aircraft purchases and is also Middle East agent for Nextant.
Ted Farid says: “Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with a lot of great and successful people. I have a passion for aviation and look forward to working with Garett once again and tackling some of the unique challenges of the emerging markets.”
Earlier this week, Farid was appointed to Nextant Aerospace’s Customer Advisory Board. The Board will help Nextant set strategic direction, shape product enhancements, improve customer support and select new product platforms.
Sean McGeough, President and CEO of Nextant Aerospace adds: “Ted is a legend in the aerospace industry who has unmatched personal relationships throughout the world. His tireless work ethic, integrity and character have inspired an entire generation of aviation salespeople, including myself. We are proud to have him serve on our Customer Advisory Board.”
