JetHQ Grows Operational Team, Expands In-House Expertise
June 30, 2022 | Featured
KANSAS CITY, MO. – JetHQ has long provided clients with a range of comprehensive services during aircraft sales. To expand that support, the aircraft transaction and brokerage company has added in-house legal counsel and promoted a team member to head its contracts and development department.
JetHQ announces the addition of Kyle Evans (pictured above) as its in-house general counsel, and that Josh Tremain will become Vice President of Contracts and Business Development. Tremain, who previously served as Manager of Contracts and Business Development, will succeed Nicola Pike, who is retiring from a storied career spent in business aviation.
“The strength of JetHQ is its people and the expertise we’ve brought together,” said JetHQ Founder and Managing Director Garett Jerde. “We’re continuing to invest in our team to provide a single place of support and resources for our clients, where our experience and proficiencies make transactions easier around the globe.”
Evans comes to JetHQ after more than a decade of legal experience at Oklahoma City law firms, where he practiced civil law for individual and corporate clients in commercial matters. He specialized in contract and insurance law. He holds a juris doctor from the University of Oklahoma and a bachelor’s degree from Oklahoma State University.
Tremain, also based in Oklahoma, has used his analytical background to assist clients with thousands of transactions, having built a strong network of global contacts within the business aviation community. He and Evans will manage relationships with title companies, aviation attorneys and other buyers and sellers.
Pike, whose retirement begins on June 30, joined JetHQ in 2015, early in the company’s history. The United Kingdom-based expert has been instrumental to the growth of the company, serving as the first in-house person to handle contracts and logistics. She leveraged more than 30 years’ worth of aircraft experience at some of the leading aviation manufacturers, such as Hawker, to help grow JetHQ to the international brokerage it is today.
“Nicola provided a seasoned eye for details and knowledge that has made us who we are,” Jerde said. “She is a woman who finds solutions, rather than obstacles, regardless of time of day or night. Her legacy to our company is one of invaluable precision. She will be greatly missed by our entire team.”
In 2022, JetHQ is celebrating its 10th anniversary, having recently brought on Nathan de Kock as Vice President of Operations, and promoting others to leadership positions in the United States.
