GULFSTREAM EXPANDS WORLDWIDE SALES TEAMAdditions Further Strengthen Company’s Customer Focus, Address Increased Interest In High-Demand Regions
SAVANNAH, Georgia, May 28, 2018 — Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced it has expanded its Worldwide Sales team to further enhance the company’s focus on customers and their sales experiences. The Sales organization has grown from five to seven divisions with increased attention on the Northeastern United States; Europe, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS); and Africa, the Middle East and South Asia.
“Our Sales team supports customers throughout their Gulfstream journey, from initial sales discussions and fleet planning to delivery and beyond,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “As demand for the G650 and G650ER continues to soar and the G500 and G600 come closer to certification and delivery, we want to ensure customers have consistent access to Gulfstream anywhere in the world.”
Two Gulfstream Sales executives have been promoted to regional senior vice president roles: Mike West in the Northeastern U.S. and Nic Robinson in Africa, the Middle East and South Asia. West moves into his new role from Sales director, Metro New York, while Robinson, formerly regional vice president, Sales, Africa, leads the newly formed Africa, Middle East and South Asia sales territory.
With these new appointments and territory assignments, Trevor Esling, regional senior vice president, will lead Gulfstream’s focus in Europe, Russia and CIS to support strong growth in the region, Gulfstream’s second-largest international market.
Combined, the three have been supporting Gulfstream customers for more than 30 years.
To further support the newly expanded sales territories, two new regional vice presidents have joined Gulfstream. Mike Swift takes on the role of regional vice president for the Metro New York region, reporting to West, and Marc Strange serves as regional vice president, Africa, and reports to Robinson. Swift joins Gulfstream from Bank of America Merrill Lynch, where he was director of global corporate aircraft finance. Strange most recently served as director of aircraft sales for Southern and Central Africa for Embraer Executive Jets.
“I am pleased to congratulate Mike West and Nic Robinson on their promotions and welcome Mike Swift and Marc Strange to their new roles at Gulfstream,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales, Gulfstream. “They join a deeply experienced and professional sales team and will enhance Gulfstream’s position as a leader in business aviation.”
In addition to the newly defined territories, Gulfstream’s Worldwide Sales divisions also include Central, Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern U.S., led by Bill McLeod; Western U.S., led by Brent Monroe; Florida and Latin America, led by Fabio Rebello; and Asia Pacific, led by Roger Sperry.
