ONEflight International, Inc. announced today the appointment of Canadian businessman and television host, Kevin O’Leary, as a brand ambassador for the jet card broker.
O’Leary is known for his role as an investor on ABC’s Shark Tank. He joins another alum of the show, Robert Herjavec, who signed on as a brand ambassador over two years ago.
O’Leary founded The Learning Company, which was acquired by Mattel in 1999.
Since then, he became a business personality via his role on Shark Tank and as a CNBC contributor. He also campaigned to lead the Conservative Party of Canada.
“I’m thrilled that Kevin O’Leary chose OneFlight as his exclusive private aviation provider,” said Ferren Rajput, Founder, and CEO of OneFlight International.
He continued, “It speaks volumes that both Kevin and one of his costars believe so highly in our brand that they will put their notable names behind us. We are in the business of making life easier for our clients and their travel companions. The growing list of people — from Hollywood to Wall Street — that support us tells me we’re doing something right for them.”
Current ambassadors include three-time Super Bowl champion John Elway, former White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci, and actors and entertainers Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, and Courteney Cox. Clients of the Denver-based provider include Kurt Russell, Jimmy Kimmel, and Kevin Costner.
Rajput says the company has retained 90% of its clients who started flying during the Covid-19 pandemic.
In 2021 it made the Inc. 5000 as one of 2021’s Fastest Growing Companies in the United States.
“There’s no easier way to manage this than OneFlight’s Book a Jet platform. Once I know my plan, it’s just a few clicks to arrange my way to get there,” O’Leary said.
