David Dixon, President – Jetcraft Asia

What are your responsibilities within the global Jetcraft team?
When I joined Jetcraft in 2012 I was happy to continue working in the Asia region since I have been based here for over 30 years. As President of Jetcraft Asia, the overall direction of sales in the Asia region is my responsibility. Although the region is very large, there are still less business aircraft in the region than in California. There is scope to grow, which is why Jetcraft is here.
Describe a typical day or week in your role.
Being 12 hours adrift timewise with the US and Europe means that I always wake to many emails. One advantage of the time difference is that answers can be forthcoming overnight enabling me to respond quickly to the needs of the day. A key portion of my time is spent looking for buyers that need an aircraft we represent, or sourcing an aircraft that meets the needs of a buyer I am working with. Being located in the region is a major plus – this is not a region where you can work through emails alone. Getting out to meet people is crucial and a major part of the working day.
