Jet Linx has appointed two highly decorated aviation professionals, Mark Fischer and Chris Curtin, as vice presidents of regional aircraft management sales. Fischer and Curtin bring a wealth of knowledge to enhance the Jet Linx aircraft management sales experience. In their new roles they will work proactively with the company's base locations and national operations centre to deliver reliable solutions designed to offset ownership costs and drive revenue.
The continued expansion of the aircraft management sales team reflects the company's commitment to providing the highest level of personalised service to its aircraft owners. Jet Linx strengthens its ability to deliver unparalleled support and expertise in aircraft management and acquisitions through a greater focus in specific regions by bringing Mr. Fischer, who will oversee the Florida market, and Curtin, who will support aircraft owners on the US east coast, on board. The company remains dedicated to exceeding the expectations of its valued clients and maintaining its position as a leader in safety and service within the private aviation industry.
“We are thrilled to welcome Mr. Fischer and Mr. Curtin to our aircraft management team,” says Jamie Walker, president and CEO of Jet Linx. “Their extensive knowledge, experience and dedication to client satisfaction will further strengthen our industry-leading aircraft ownership programme. With their addition, we are well-positioned to continue meeting the evolving needs of our clients and advancing our position in the industry.”
With over 25 years of experience in the aviation industry, Fischer has a proven track record of success in avionics sales for personal and business aircraft. His previous roles include avionics sales manager positions at recognised firms such as Collins Aerospace, Gulfstream and Greenwich Aerogroup. In overseeing aircraft management sales in Miami and Boca Raton in Florida, he will work directly with local Jet Linx base teams and partners to ensure optimal performance of clients' assets.
“With a robust national infrastructure in place, building productive relationships and serving as a dependable advisor will enable me to serve Jet Linx clients at the highest possible level. It is an honour to join a company that is so genuinely committed to excellence,” he comments.
Curtin began his aviation career while attending Ohio State University, where he earned his commercial pilot's licence and a bachelor's degree in aviation, aircraft systems. His dedication and expertise led him to executive positions including executive vice president roles at Talon Air and ExcelAire/Hawthorne Global Aviation Services. With a career spanning Part 135, Part 145 and FBO operations, he brings robust industry knowledge to his new role. As regional vice president of aircraft management sales for Jet Linx Boston, New York and Washington D.C., he will apply his expertise to continue Jet Linx's fleet expansion on the east coast.
“My passion for aviation and commitment to service excellence align seamlessly with Jet Linx's mission to provide exceptional care and management of aviation assets. The Jet Linx business model provides further bandwidth and robust tools that allow for peak performance of our clients' assets,” he states.
Jet Linx continues to set new standards in the private aviation industry through its commitment to safety, personalised service and comprehensive range of private aviation solutions. The company's dedication to safety was reaffirmed at its seventh consecutive Safety Summit on June 13, 2023, where it ceased retail flight operations for a full business day to bring all its more than 500 team members together for a day focused on the examination and improvement of safety practices and standards at the company and for the aviation industry at large. In 2023, Jet Linx was also recognised by the Luxury Lifestyle Awards as the Best Private Jet Service in the US, a prestigious accolade awarded in a competitive field of private jet providers worldwide.
