After launching Flexjet’s European fractional program in 2020 MD Marine Eugene has left for a private equity job.
Flexjet, Inc. is apparently seeking a new boss to lead its growing European operations.
Eugene joined Flexjet in January 2019 after 15 years with NetJets from 2002 to 2017.
According to a spokesperson, “Marine Eugene has moved on to a new role in private equity, and she remains a great friend to the brand after spending five years with us. We are in the process of transitioning to a new managing director but aren’t ready to make that announcement.”
In the meantime, Flexjet, Inc. co-CEOs, Cleveland-based Mike Silvestro and Boston-based Andrew Collins, continue to lead the business, regularly traveling Europe.
Flexjet employs more than 300 employees in Europe based in its Tactical Control Centre at Farnborough Airport, an Operational Centre in Malta, a maintenance facility in Milan, and a sales office in London Mayfair.
The spokesperson tells Private Jet Card Comparisons it is also seeking a larger space in Mayfair for the sales team “as it has grown significantly since we opened it in 2019 and continues to do so.”
Flexjet operates a fleet of 14 private jets and 11 helicopters, with more of its 2024 deliveries bound for Europe.
The spokesperson says the company will announce a new training facility in London in the coming weeks.
Eugene was overseeing its U.K.-based jet card and on-demand charter broker, PrivateFly.
