executive airshare opening new base in denver
June 15, 2018
Executive AirShare is expanding its first-class service into Denver and surrounding communities within the Rocky Mountains. The EAS fleet will feature Embraer Phenom 300s, the company’s most popular aircraft. Additionally, the new base will be supported by its industry-leading crewmembers and customer service specialists. EAS currently serves Central U.S. business and leisure customers in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Kansas City, Austin, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Wichita.
“Bringing our private aviation solutions to Denver is a natural decision for us,” says John Owen, Executive AirShare president and CEO. “The Denver market is one of the most desirable destinations in the country and has long been a part of our vision for growth. It was the perfect time to make the move. Everyone who flies with us will benefit from the efficiencies and lower costs associated with the opening of our new Denver base.”
Denver expands the Executive AirShare service footprint within the Central United States. Prior to this announcement, the closest operations base to Colorado residents was located in Wichita, Kansas.
“We’ve experienced firsthand the unparalleled level of service Executive AirShare provides,” says Robert Cohen, the Denver-based chairman and CEO of IMA Financial Group. “Since we started together in Kansas nearly 15 years ago, Executive AirShare’s staff and crew have been outstanding partners in handling our travel needs. This welcomed expansion gives other Coloradans an opportunity to discover the advantages EAS gives businesses.”
To support the expansion into Denver, Executive AirShare also announces the addition of Lee Richards, a seasoned sales professional with more than 12 years of experience in the fractional aircraft industry. Richards will serve in the position of sales director, working directly with future customers in the region. Prior to joining EAS, Richards sold fractional aircraft for Flexjet and Flight Options, while most recently serving as vice president of sales for VistaJet.
“Lee’s strengths and experience will greatly benefit the company and our customers in Denver,” says Dylan Haynie, Executive AirShare’s vice president of sales. “He speaks the same business language as our clients and understands the importance of enhancing their productivity. He will do a great job of connecting with people and explaining how the EAS model creates value superior to other travel options.”
