Miami, FL –March 8, 2023 — Peter Kiernan, an experienced executive at top charter/management companies, has joined Elevate Aviation Group’s Keystone Aviation as VP, Managed Aircraft Sales. His primary responsibility will be to maintain the growth of Keystone Aviation’s managed fleet, now over 30 aircraft.
“Keystone develops uniquely close relationships with its managed aircraft clients and offers them uncommon flexibility in structuring their managed aircraft services,” said Elevate Aviation Group President Randy McKinney. “This has helped us establish a very loyal base of customers. It is a track record on which we can build growth.”
“Pete Kiernan is well known in the charter/management market and highly respected,” McKinney continued. “He will be the face of Keystone Aviation aircraft management to new customers, helping them navigate the process of putting an aircraft under management. At Keystone, they will find that ownership is simplified and will benefit from savings based on the company’s purchasing power. In addition, they can earn charter revenue, if desired.”
Kiernan comes to Keystone Aviation from Jet Aviation Flight Services, where he was Director of Client Services. Previously he held senior sales and management positions with Wheels Up, Landmark Aviation Aircraft Management and Executive Jet Management/NetJets. In all those assignments, he demonstrated the ability to grow a portfolio of managed aircraft.
