Ohio-headquartered management company Corporate Wings has named Elizabeth Ricci as CEO. She was previously the company's vp of client services.
“Corporate Wings is a leader in private aviation, and it remains close to my heart nearly 40 years after I acquired it,” states principal of Directional Aviation Kenn Ricci. “A passion for aviation is essential to success in aircraft management, together with a drive to exceed customer expectations. I am proud to see Elizabeth lead Corporate Wings into a new generation.”
Prior to joining Corporate Wings, Elizabeth Ricci served as a marketing manager and most recently as a director at Nextant Aerospace, another Directional Aviation company.
“I know the joy that owning and flying an aircraft can bring,” she says. “My goal as CEO of Corporate Wings is to ensure that all of the aircraft under our management are cared for, operated and staffed precisely to each owner's needs and wishes. Our job is to absorb the burden and make aircraft ownership a pleasure for our clients.”
When Kenn Ricci acquired Corporate Wings in 1981, it was a small aircraft management and charter operation company providing charter flight service to corporate clients. After Ricci purchased the company, it began acquiring FBOs within range of cities, enabling it to expand its management business beyond Cleveland, Ohio. In 1988, Corporate Wings was named to the Inc. 500 list of America's fastest-growing companies.
