Western Aircraft, a Greenwich AeroGroup company located in Boise, Idaho, is continuing to grow its Gulfstream MRO support team by hiring Doug Wendt as its newest regional sales manager. Wendt is a seasoned sales manager with extensive Gulfstream experience, having spent more than 20 years working his way up through various roles at Gulfstream, from manager to district manager and then regional sales manager of product support.

Western has also hired Elise Wheelock as its new regional sales director for Piper Aircraft. Pat Belokas, who previously served as the company's Piper regional sales director, has been promoted to the Pilatus sales team as regional director for Pilatus turboprop sales.

Wheelock started her career as a customer service representative for Aviation Adventures in Warrenton, Virginia. She then moved on to Piper Aircraft where she served as a product marketing intern, product marketing coordinator and most recently as a fleet sales representative.

In her new role as Western Aircraft's regional sales director for Piper Aircraft, she will build and maintain strong relationships with Piper aircraft prospects and customers to understand their needs and objectives as an aircraft owner.
