CRS Jet Spares has added industry veteran Vince Jimenez to its team as regional sales manager for the western United States and two Canadian provinces.
Jimenez, who has spent more than two decades in sales and service positions within the business jet community, will be responsible for the establishment and growth of relationships with business jet maintenance and operations facilities in California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Idaho, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming and Montana, as well Alberta and British Columbia.
“The strength and depth of our team is the foundation for delivering on our unwavering commitment to customer service,” says CEO Milan Cvejic. “Vince is well-versed in the varied airframes we support, is highly qualified to provide expert guidance to our customers and will make an immediate impact through the excellent relationships he has built in the western region over the last 20 or more years.”
Jimenez has deep aerospace experience in both aftermarket and production, having most recently served as fleet sales manager with Honeywell Aerospace. He has also worked closely with Falcon, Hawker and Challenger operators as regional sales manager for Western Aircraft after spending more than 10 years in varied positions with Gulfstream Aerospace. While with Gulfstream, Jimenez was involved in all aspects of the maintenance process, providing him with a deep base of knowledge that will provide benefit to CRS customers.
“CRS has a fantastic reputation in the industry, and the vision that the new ownership team has in place aligns very well with my focus on service and solutions,” he says. “I'm extremely excited to be the face of CRS in the western region and am anxious to meet with our customers at airports and maintenance facilities all over the region in the coming months.”
