Jetcraft, the global business jet sales and acquisitions provider, is expanding its presence in the Americas with the appointment of Preston Jasper and Derek Long as Sales Executives. Jasper and Long join Jetcraft with a combined expertise of 20 years in business aviation.

What do the execs bring to their new roles at Jetcraft?

Jasper joined Jetcraft in 2019 after starting his career in corporate finance – beginning his Jetcraft tenure as a Sales Engineer before later moving up to Sales Manager. Based in Minneapolis, he will oversee Jetcraft’s strategic client partnerships in the mid-west US region.

Long joins Jetcraft after a 14-year career in banking, including a decade-long tenure at PNC. Based in Atlanta, he will drive Jetcraft’s aircraft sales and acquisitions in the mid-Atlantic US.

Dan Kilkeary, SVP Sales Americas at Jetcraft, says: “Our industry is experiencing high demand with the latest WingX data showing BizJet activity in the first half of 2022 is up 21% vs 2019. It is vital Jetcraft has the best people in place to source aircraft that meet our clients’ needs.”

“Both Preston and Derek’s aviation expertise, coupled with their strong financial backgrounds, will ensure we remain unstoppable in this fast-paced market,” Dan Kilkeary further said.
