Aero Asset makes two key US appointments


Helicopter trading firm Aero Asset has made two key appointments, with both roles to be based in the US. Jim Morford has been appointed director of Market Research and Holly Gilewski to its Aircraft Sales Support team.

Aero Asset president Emmanuel Dupuy said the appointments will reinforce the Toronto-based firm’s position in pre-owned helicopter sales. “Both of these staff additions will further strengthen Aero Asset’s strong support for our clientele interested in buying and selling preowned helicopters,” said Dupuy.

“These two skilled professionals bring solid credentials and experience to our sales support group and we are delighted to welcome them to our team.”

Morford began his aviation career in 2007 as customer service manager for     aviation market research firm, AMSTAT. During his time with the company, he worked with aviation companies of all sizes and contributed to AMSTAT becoming one of the industry’s most trusted sources of market intelligence, said Dupuy. He has worked with leaders in all sectors of the aviation industry including OEMs, operators, financiers, and maintenance organisations. Morford will be based in New Jersey.

Gilewski will be based in Orlando, Florida. After graduating from Embruy-Riddle Aeronautical University, Gilewski worked at Lockheed Martin and United Launch Alliance before joining Aero Asset.

Meanwhile, earlier this month, Dupuy hosted Helicopter Investor’s Town Hall online meeting dedicated to reading the temperature of the helicopter market in North America and Europe. You can watch the meeting here or listen to the podcast here.
