January 27th, 2019, (Portsmouth, NH) – Managing a private aircraft acquisition takes patience, business savvy, a unique knowledge and, in many cases, diplomacy given the differing interests of the many parties involved. And, given the fact that a good deal for a client can fall through at any moment, it’s a high bar that few aircraft acquisition representatives, brokers and client advisors can live up to. That’s why it’s our esteemed honor to announce that Lee Rohde, President & CEO of Essex Aviation Group, has been recognized as one of America’s Top 30 Dealmakers by CJI Quarterly.

Corporate Jet Investor’s Top 30 Dealmakers list recognizes professionals in the private aviation industry with the transactional skills and experience to consistently close deals. All 30 candidates on the list were chosen from a pool of over 7,000 nominees based on industry research and public surveys. Rohde and the entire Essex Aviation team earned points for their dedication to transparency, which is “likely to become even more important in the future, particularly as advances in technology lower the entry point to the industry.”

“It’s truly an honor to be recognized by one of the most influential and well-respected publications and resources in our industry,” said Rohde. “I had a fantastic time talking to Corporate Jet Investor about how transparency is vital to the success of any transaction, and why it’s central to what we do here at Essex Aviation.”
