Global aircraft brokerage and consulting firm JetHQ is marking its 10th anniversary and a record year of growth in 2021 with promotions and additions to its sales and support team.

Nathan de Knock is returning to JetHQ as the company's v-p of operations and will oversee all inbound aircraft under brokerage agreements and manage the company's inventory aircraft. "Establishing this position at JetHQ is an integral part of our growth from 50 transactions in 2021 to the sales levels we anticipate over the next few years," said JetHQ founder Garett Jerde. "Nathan began his career with JetHQ shortly after our founding, before branching out to other global sales positions."

Meanwhile, Steven Pinkerton was promoted to director of operations. He joined JetHQ in 2019 at its Kansas City headquarters after previously working as an FAA-licensed aircraft engineer.

Amelia Schaefer was promoted from market research manager to sales manager working from JetHQ’s Holmdel, New Jersey office. Also joining JetHQ in New Jersey as a market analyst is Jennifer Steakin, who previously served as a research analyst at Amstat for five years.

"JetHQ has grown in every way over the past 10 years," Jerde said. "The team is larger than it has ever been, with more than 20 employees."
