Gulfstream has named Michael Swift as group vice president of sales overseeing EMEA and the Asia-Pacific region.

In this newly created role, Swift will manage Gulfstream's EMEA and APAC sales teams, working closely with its customer support and marketing organisations to develop strategies that further increase market share in these important business aviation regions.

"As we continue to see strong demand in these regions, we wanted to create a role that would help elevate our presence and momentum to match that demand," says senior vice president, worldwide sales Scott Neal. "Michael's sales acumen, alongside his aircraft finance background, have allowed him to excel as a well-rounded customer-centric sales leader. We look forward to his continued success as he expands his leadership presence in these areas, which are increasingly important for business aviation."

Prior to joining Gulfstream in 2018 as regional vice president of sales, Swift spent more than a decade in corporate aircraft finance at Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Textron Financial. He received a bachelor's degree in marketing and management from Siena College and a master's degree from Columbia Business School.

Swift will continue to be based in Gulfstream's sales and design centre in London.
