Garett Jerde

Garett Jerde

Founder and Managing Director

Flying all over the world and serving as a manufacturer’s internationally based sales director gave Garett a detailed perspective into to the world of aircraft transactions. He recognized that customers in the preowned market weren’t receiving the same level of service and information as those buying new from OEMs. He founded JetHQ to change that.

Butch Lang

Butch Lang

Vice President of Sales

What’s the most interesting aspect of Butch’s background? It might be as a Navy Pilot, flying reconnaissance missions in Vietnam. Or logging more than 10,000 hours of flight time as a commercial pilot. Maybe it’s the 30 years of aircraft sales where he’s closed more than 250 transactions worth more than $500 million.

Chris Morales

An avid angler on Florida’s waters, Chris knows the first rule of the sport: go where the fish are. In his aviation career, he’s followed a similar directive, demoing and flying with customers all over the world while helping them make the right ownership decisions and closing deals.

David Coppock

David didn’t grow up in a flying household, but he still caught the pilot bug at an early age through family friends.

Nicola Pike

Nicola Pike

Vice President of Contracts & Business Development

There’s no such thing as a 9-to-5 day in Nicola’s world. Her morning may begin with an early call or transaction from the Asia-Pacific region or JetHQ’s Dubai headquarters. Then work continues with European colleagues before American agents start buzzing her UK-based office, possibly lasting well into the evening.

Jill Plumb

Jill Plumb

Vice President of Marketing & Sales Management

Successful results require more than a small amount of behind-the-scenes work. Some of Jill’s greatest moments in aviation have come from her dedication to the details. That meant coordinating the nearly simultaneous landing of six aircraft flown from different locations to meet golf Hall of Famer Tom Watson as well as being part of a life-saving disaster relief effort bringing supplies to Haiti.

Josh Tremain

Growing up as the son of a helicopter pilot in India, he graduated from the prestigious Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. There in Florida he learned to fly – and skydive – while entering aviation’s business community.

Steven Pinkerton

Steven Pinkerton

Technical Manager

Learning an aircraft’s history can be a bit like doing detective work. For someone like Steven, who comes from a technical background, that means hunting down documents and talking to the right people to find out the aircraft’s true story. The smallest detail that isn’t quite right might stop a transaction or change a recommendation to a client.

Roxy is a Marketing Manager based at JetHQ Dubai where she assists the company and its marketing team with some administrative and professional assignments. She ensures that each team member can be more-focused on carrying out on his or her primary responsibilities, and therefore be more effective and productive in driving company objectives.
