Lowe previously held the position of MD at ASG, while Kessler held the position of director, business development and sales.
“Jeff has seen the inner workings of ASG since day one, and has also come to act as the face of the company,” says ASG chairman Zhendong Wu. “He and I have discussed our higher hopes for the course of ASG in the coming years. The goal is to serve the industry with the highest professional standards and integrity. I am confident that he will take to his role of CEO with excellence and rigour.”
Lowe started out at ASG as general manager in 2012, when the company was first founded by Avion Pacific and Seacor Capital (Asia). He has over 35 years of experience in business and commercial aviation, working for Bombardier Business Aircraft, Gulfstream and BAA Ltd. in Asia, along with the de Havilland Aircraft Company of Canada, Boeing Canada, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Canadair and Bombardier Regional Aircraft. During his eight years with ASG, Jeff has helped expand the team to include sales offices in Shanghai, Shenzhen, Beijing, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. He also established Asian Sky Media, which produces 10 industry leading, APAC business and general publications every year, along with providing marketing services to aviation companies looking to expand their presence in the Asia Pacific region.
“I'm also pleased to welcome Nadav to his new role as vice president of sales and business development,” says Wu. “Nadav is dedicated, loyal and has a proven track record in business development and sales, with a knack for turning challenging opportunities into successful transactions. He always prioritises our clients' interests, and his strong work ethic and resilient attitude, along with his experience, will surely translate to an effective leader of our sales and business development unit.”
Kessler has also been with ASG since its foundation and has over 10 years of experience in business and general aviation for both rotary and fixed-wing operations throughout the region.
