“It was such an honor to receive the award at the Corporate Jet Investors Dealmakers event at EBACE,” Barber says. “Al and Louisa Whyte have done a phenomenal job in creating the Corporate Jet Investor brand and these awards are just another step forward for their incredible team. Having Duncan Aviation’s newest Aircraft Sales professional, Jose Eduardo Costas, receive an award alongside me made the evening even more enjoyable.”
