Craig Lammiman, 36 from Poole has landed the top job as sales and marketing director with Biggin Hill based Oriens Aviation.
The distributor for the Swiss manufactured Pilatus PC-12 executive aircraft, has just invested $14 million to buy three of the nine-seat aircraft from the factory ready for owners in 2016. To sell aircraft worth $4.6 million is not a daunting task for Craig, who has successfully worked in aircraft sales for eight years.
“The time-poor who need to frequently travel across Europe see aircraft ownership as an essential part of their business and family life. My job is to explain how the PC-12 will make their travel easy and more practical than with other, even more expensive, executive aircraft,” said Craig.
One of the perks offered by Oriens Aviation to Craig has been the opportunity to learn to fly. He has now started his flight training so his career is really taking off!
