Prior to joining JSSI, Chris Charnley was regional sales director at Textron Aviation with responsibility for Beechcraft and Caravan sales throughout Canada, so he knows the territory well.
Chris Charnley's previous employers include Hawker Beechcraft and Pratt & Whitney.

Maintenance support and financial services provider Jet Support Services, Inc (JSSI) has named Chris Charnley as director of business development for Canada.

Charnley brings more than 40 years of aviation industry experience to JSSI, including senior leadership roles at Hawker Beechcraft and Pratt & Whitney Canada. He will be responsible for overseeing the company's growth in the Canadian market.

“Chris has an impressive record of aircraft sales success in the Canadian market, combined with a background of exceptional aircraft technical support and customer service skills. We have several new products and services coming down the pipeline to better support aircraft owners and operators, and Chris will play a leading role as we pursue new opportunities in this strategically important market,” says Francisco Zozaya, senior VP of business development.

“I'm excited to join JSSI at this time of growth and expansion,” adds Charnley. “I look forward to applying my industry experience to contribute to further success for the business and help build enhanced levels of support for aircraft owners and operators throughout Canada.”

Most recently, Charnley was regional sales director at Textron Aviation with responsibility for Beechcraft and Caravan sales throughout Canada. He previously held senior leadership positions at Raytheon Aircraft and Hawker Beechcraft, with responsibility for all products in the Canada and Latin America regions.
