BizAv Consulting Services Consolidated
Four business aviation consulting firms this week announced allying themselves under an umbrella organization known as ACCESS Alliance. The newly formed group -- founded by Alliance, Aviation Personnel International (API), Waypoint Partners, Gray Stone Associates and Jet Perspectives -- is based on a business model allowing any one member to expand their consulting services from single-requirement assignments to more comprehensive and multi-faceted projects drawing on other alliance members. According to the organization, ACCESS Alliance’s services encompass human resources consulting, management consulting, operational reviews, aircraft transaction consulting and asset appraising; each of the founding companies represents a key specialty and has in-depth experience in their area of expertise. When combined, Alliance members have more than 180 years of expertise to draw on for their individual clients.
"The Alliance represents an opportunity for business aviation operators, as well as potential operators, to address a variety of business needs without the hassles and inconsistencies that come from contracting with multiple consulting companies,” said Waypoint Partners’ Mike Sowa, speaking on behalf of the Alliance members. “We can also help clients avoid pitfalls that often occur when using larger consolidated firms that lack in-depth industry expertise.” Added Jet Perspectives’ Robert Zuskin, “Our intention is to provide a single source of knowledge and capabilities that will benefit the customer. Collectively, we represent an alliance of excellence whose main focus is serving the customer.”
