Chad’s Colorado job search was a true whirlwind. While still living in California, he and his family committed to moving to Denver for his wife’s job. After securing housing, the only thing left was to find a job for himself.
Since 2005, Chad had worked for a high-end limousine service in Los Angeles. The service catered to an elite clientele, including A-listers, royalty, and political officials. As the HR Director/VP of Operations, Chad gained valuable experience that made him a top candidate for one of J. Kent’s unique direct-hire searches.
J. Kent was recruiting for a General Manager for an aviation company that charters a fleet of private jets out of Centennial Airport. The company had been struggling to attract the right profile of candidates. They were receiving interest mostly from commercial airline executives who were not the right fit for their boutique Colorado-based company.
This hands-on management position is responsible for overseeing 40 employees, including Flight Coordinators, office staff, and hangar operations crews. The mission of the General Manager is to ensure successful day-to-day operations that result in customized, first-class customer experiences.
Airline industry experience was not required; just strong people and process management skills working for a services provider. Chad’s management experience with a high-end transportation company with similar clientele was just the right match. After a video interview with a J. Kent recruiter, Chad flew through our client’s interview process, quickly securing a job offer as General Manager.
