Quest Aircraft named Samuel Hill as its new CEO, the Sandpoint, Idaho-based turboprop manufacturer announced today.

Before joining Honda, he spent 10 years with Embraer Aircraft in key leadership positions, including president and vice chairman, and was responsible for starting Embraer’s corporate aircraft division. Dave Vander Griend, who had been serving as Quest’s interim CEO since mid-2011, will continue in his role as chairman of the board.
