Duncan Aviation's Rene Cardona, a longtime member of the company's aircraft sales and acquisitions team, has recently earned recognition as an International Aircraft Dealers Association certified aircraft sales broker.
“We are very pleased to include Rene in the ranks of IADA-certified aircraft brokers,” says IADA executive director Wayne Starling. “He joins an elite group of professional brokers who have passed a rigorous, independent evaluation to achieve recognition as a highly skilled broker at the top of his profession.”
IADA recently moved towards full professional accreditation for aircraft dealer organisations and their individual representatives. A rigorous certification examination for brokers was developed and is managed by Joseph Allan Aviation Consulting. The broker examination measures the skill and competencies that are required of aircraft brokers in order to effectively conduct their work. Joseph Allan has experience in curriculum development as well as the development and management of examinations measuring knowledge-based competencies.
For more than 30 years, Cardona has been involved in the sales and acquisition of business aircraft. He has been a member of the Duncan Aviation aircraft sales and acquisitions team since 1988. Before joining Duncan, he worked as a market researcher, agent, broker and consultant for International Jet Markets, a small, independent aircraft brokerage company based in Atlanta while studying industrial management at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
