KANSAS CITY, MO. – Known throughout the industry as a leader in real-time market analysis and aircraft sales trends, JetHQ is growing its team to support operations and accommodate client needs. The aircraft transaction and brokerage company announces that Amelia Schaefer, Manager of Market Research, and Karen Blake, Sales Manager, have joined its Holmdel, New Jersey, office.
Both women come to JetHQ with strong aviation industry connections, having served as research analysts at business aircraft market research company AMSTAT. Working with data-heavy accounts, their work benefited customers around the globe.
“This is an opportunity to lead with our strengths in the aircraft transaction world,” said Founder and Managing Director Garett Jerde. “Both Amelia and Karen help us deliver the information, metrics and marketplace analysis that give our clients the best value in our space. It helps maximize their return when selling aircraft and guides them in securing their next aircraft at the appropriate price.”
Schaefer, who attended Rutgers University, has worked as both a domestic and foreign market research analyst, handling fixed-wing and helicopter transactions. Blake, a graduate of Seton Hall University, handled data reporting, system accounting and aircraft databases for client accounts. They will work closely with Aman Kapur, Sales Manager, and Roxy Rosales, Marketing Manager, based in JetHQ’s Dubai office, and Jill Plumb, Vice President of Marketing & Sales Management, and Steven Pinkerton, Technical Manager, in JetHQ’s Kansas City, Missouri, headquarters.
