Jet Advisors Taps Former Raytheon Sales Exec
Jet Advisors, the Broomfield, Colo., bizjet acquisition and management firm, said last week it is adding former Raytheon sales and marketing vice president Karl R. Childs to its staff. In his new position, Childs will help the company focus on private jet sales and acquisitions, an area Jet Advisors said will be one of its priorities for the coming year. Childs' new role will be a familiar one: He will support his new employer's sales and marketing efforts, as he has for Raytheon, Sabreliner and Cessna. In addition to his nine years of service at Raytheon, overseeing all private jet sales and marketing activity worldwide, Childs worked as the vice president of sales and marketing at Sabreliner Corporation. He held a similar position at Cessna Aircraft Company, where he worked for a total of 19 years. Jet Advisors said it would continue offering its private jet and fractional jet ownership consulting, plus negotiating charter card agreements and providing invoice-auditing services.
