JSSI new business development director for Middle East and India
Jet Support Services (JSSI) has appointed Pascale Barhouch as director of business development for the Middle East and India. The firm said Barhouch will be based in Dubai where she will oversee managing strategic sales and support plans in the region.
Outgoing director Gregory Olympios, said: “I can’t think of a more qualified person to pass the torch to. I have no doubt Pascale will do an exceptional job supporting the many valued customers I had the pleasure of working with for so many years.”
Barhouch brings more than 13 years of experience to JSSI from across the aviation and aerospace industries. Prior to joining JSSI, she held a variety of senior sales and marketing roles with ABJAD Group, Rizon Jet and, most recently, Gogo Business Aviation.
Throughout that time Barhouch has been responsible for product sales for aircraft communication and connectivity, satellite networks, and in-flight entertainment throughout the Middle East, Africa, Turkey, and Europe.
Barhouch said: “The Middle East is an exciting place for business aviation. As the market continues to grow, I am excited to join JSSI and have an opportunity to demonstrate the value of JSSI’s hourly cost maintenance programmes and the enhanced levels of independent service and support we can provide aircraft owners and operators.”
Mark Winzar, JSSI’s Senior Vice President of Business Development for EMEAA and APAC, said: “For the past nine years, Gregory Olympios and our Dubai office have been instrumental in establishing JSSI’s position across the Middle East and we are thrilled to now welcome Pascale to continue this development following Gregory’s recent retirement.”
He added: “Her experience across the region will be an incredibly valuable addition to the team and we look forward to working together.”
