Without disclosing financial details, business jet broker JetAviva saw a 25 percent increase in revenue and a 22 percent jump in preowned business aircraft sold in the first quarter versus the same three-month period a year ago, the Kansas City firm announced on April 12. Company leaders attributed this growth to an expanded team structure and new, internal processes.
“We have the momentum right now to make this year a record year for JetAviva,” said JetAviva CEO Tim White. “I strongly believe this trend of growth comes from our team’s synergy, having found ways to become more efficient and focus heavily on set goals.”
At least part of the growth can be attributed to the hiring of Emily Deaton as vice president of sales, which “allowed the entire team to accelerate the service to our customer base to an even higher level,” White added. Returning to the fundamentals of regular communication, accountability, and goal-setting also aided in JetAviva’s strong quarter, he explained.
Earlier this month, JetAviva announced the hiring of four analysts to track market trends and activities to support its sales staff based in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
