Q&A With Danie Joubert

Danie Joubert, Sales Director, Africa, Jetcraft
Location: Johannesburg, South Africa

What are your responsibilities within the global Jetcraft team?

My main responsibilities are the Africa market. I travel around Africa to all the different locations to handle aircraft sales transactions and look for inbound aircraft for us to market internationally.

Describe a typical day or week in your role.

A typical day working from my home office starts by checking any leads that came through overnight. I’ll respond to those, then follow up with any previous leads or active transactions that require my attention throughout the day. To keep the momentum going, I then reflect on the rest of my pipeline.

Describe the company culture at Jetcraft and what it means to you?

I think the company culture in Jetcraft is a very positive culture. It’s a collaborative culture. It’s led by quality people and that creates a platform for good performance for everybody.

What do you love most about your job?

What I love most about this job is that it’s very mentally stimulating. No transaction is the same, every deal has its own unique characteristics. Sometimes with some challenges and you have to find solutions.

Who or what has been your greatest professional influence?

I wouldn’t say that a single individual or a particular event has had the greatest impact on my professional career. It’s a collection of events over your lifetime. A collection of exposures and I think that eventually, these form you in terms of how you interact and how you do your work.

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Loyal, hardworking, and sincere.

If you were to buy a business jet, which aircraft would suit your needs and why?

The aircraft I most enjoyed was the Learjet 31A. It’s a relatively small aircraft but fast. I’ve flown it many times into Africa and it’s a fun aircraft. So, if I had to buy my own aircraft it would be a Learjet 31A, even though they’re no longer in production.

Explain what makes Jetcraft’s customer experience unique.

I’d like our customers to understand that Jetcraft is a company of substance and integrity. As long as customers can have that experience, I think that’s good.

Finally, what is your hidden talent or hobby?

My hidden hobby is fishing.
