Business aviation veteran Gregg Slow has joined PrivateFly’s senior leadership team to head the U.S. division of the company, which operates from a U.S. headquarters in Boston and a sales office in Fort Lauderdale, with further sales teams based across the country.
The U.S. now accounts for half of PrivateFly’s global flight sales for the U.K.-based provider, according to the press announcement.
Slow brings 19 years of business aviation experience to the newly created role, most recently from his seven-year tenure at XOJET where, as chief client officer, he built the commercial client-facing offering and assisted in the company’s acquisition by Vista Global. Earlier this summer the VistaJet parent merged XOJET and JetSmarter to form XO.
