clay lacy aviation names greteman group agency of record

October 7, 2019

The benefits of business aviation are well understood, but when Clay Lacy Aviation launched in 1968, the industry was still in its infancy. Over the past half century, the industry has matured. So has Clay Lacy Aviation. Its robust growth recently led it to name Wichita-based Greteman Group its agency of record.

“Clay Lacy Aviation has added locations on both East and West coasts, and expanded our services for the business aviation community,” says Scott Cutshall, vice president marketing. “The time has come for us to elevate our branded outreach and strategic, targeted marketing to accurately reflect who Clay Lacy Aviation is today.”

Clay Lacy has operations and offices across the county. Its four core services include aircraft management, charter, maintenance and a full-service fixed-base operation (FBO) in Van Nuys, Cal. Earlier this year, it opened a state-of-the-art, 66,000-square-foot maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility in Oxford, Connecticut, and another 86,000 square foot of office and shop space at Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles. This FAA Part 145 repair station services Gulfstream business jets; Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global family of aircraft; Dassault Falcon jet models and Hawker aircraft. It is an authorized service center for the Embraer Phenom 100 and 300 and offers line maintenance on all other business jet aircraft. 

Greteman Group will provide data-driven marketing, advertising and public relations designed to build the brand and generate leads. 

“Clay Lacy Aviation’s iconic aviation brand stands apart,” says Ashley Bowen Cook, Greteman Group vice president. “We’ve admired the company for years. Its historic ties to Wichita and our aviation-focus led to this partnership. It feels right.”
