Opens New Sales Office In Vienna
Hawker Beechcraft announced Monday
its newest international sales office in Vienna, Austria.
Located on the prestigious Ringstraße in the heart of
Vienna's business and tourism district, the new sales office will
provide a permanent location for the Hawker Beechcraft sales team
to serve its European customers. The Vienna office will be overseen
by Byron Severson, regional sales director of Hawker aircraft,
Central and Eastern Europe, who has been in Vienna since
"Demand for our aircraft in Europe is growing, and the new sales
office in Vienna will not only help meet the customer demand but
also expand our presence in the region," said Sean McGeough, vice
president, International Sales. "For years, Vienna has been the hub
of Eastern European commerce, and positioning our new sales office
in this niche location allows us to further augment Hawker
Beechcraft's international sales team growth."
Representatives with the planemaker tell ANN they've seen a
significant increase in the company's overall international
activity in recent years.
"With nearly 65 percent of our new commercial aircraft bookings
coming from the international region, we have reorganized and
expanded our sales team over the past year to respond to the
growing demands for business aircraft," said Brad Hatt, president,
Commercial Sales. "We're excited about the new location in Vienna
as well as the experience Byron will bring to the progress taking
place in Eastern Europe."
