Soljets, a boutique aircraft acquisitions and brokerage firm with offices in Chicago, Illinois, Park City, Utah, Atlanta, Georgia, and Boulder, Colorado, has brought on Anthony ‘Tony’ Kunde to its sales team as executive sales director with a focus on aircraft transactions in the Caravan, Citation CJ4 and Citation XLS markets.
Kunde has seen the world of general aviation from a wide array of perspectives. With experience in global aircraft sales and exports, Tony has flown several of the aircraft he has assisted in selling to their new owners in Europe and Asia. Most recently, Kunde was the regional sales director for Textron Aviation with a focus on new aircraft sales in the Rocky Mountain region.
Soljets partner and co-founder Greg Oswald says: “Tony is a consummate aircraft sales professional, and we are excited to have him on the Soljets team where I'm confident he will thrive and succeed as an executive sales director. Tony's diverse background in aircraft sales will serve our firm's client base tremendously.”
As a graduate of University of North Dakota, Kunde started his aviation career at 16 years old when he soloed in a Cherokee 140 at Oshkosh Airport in Wisconsin, and to date he has professionally flown Cessna Citations and Caravans, Beech and Pilatus aircraft for several private operators.
