JetHQ continues to grow, bolstering its European-based operations in its 10th year of business.
Coming off a year of record sales, the aircraft transaction and brokerage company has added an experienced aviation professional to its Europe sales division to facilitate customer needs and answer market demand.
JetHQ announces that Mauro Rosso has been named Vice President of Sales-Europe.
Rosso brings to the position decades of aviation industry knowledge, connections and relationships, having worked for major airlines and most recently as Sales Manager for Textron Aviation in Zurich, Switzerland.
“Mauro provides the consummate professionalism, technical acumen and strategic support JetHQ is known for within preowned aircraft transactions,” said JetHQ Founder and Managing Director Garett Jerde.
“We’ve been fortunate to work closely with him in the past and have seen firsthand the level of service he delivers to clients, assisting them achieve their private aviation goals.”
Rosso began his aviation career on the engineering side of the industry, working with the legendary Alitalia as a product manager and customer support manager.
He moved on to become logistics manager with Swiss International Air Lines before taking sales management positions at Jet Aviation and then Textron.
At Textron, he negotiated sales of popular Cessna, Beechcraft and Hawker brands, and preowned, upgraded and modified aircraft.
He also managed services requiring aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities, including avionics upgrades, equipment installations and paint services.
He helped develop highly successful sales promotion and marketing strategies.
Rosso is based in Italy and will work in JetHQ’s Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) international division under President Rebecca Johnson.
Earlier this year the company enhanced its North America sales team, promoting President David Coppock and bringing in Sonya Sheldon and Cole White as Vice Presidents.
