Solairus Aviation (the “Company”), a leading aircraft management and charter services company, is pleased to announce several updates to its Executive Leadership Team as the Company continues its mission to redefine integrated private aircraft services:

  • Brent Monroe has been appointed as Chief Growth Officer (CGO). With over 30 years of experience in the private aviation industry, Monroe will be responsible for spearheading the Company’s fleet development efforts and focusing on further strengthening Solairus’ market leadership position with large cabin aircraft management clients.  His extensive experience and track record in leadership roles within the private aviation industry make him a valuable addition to Solairus and its existing and prospective customers.
  • Bob Marinace has been promoted to Chief Experience Officer (CXO). Marinace’s promotion comes after years of exemplary service and leadership within the Company, where he most recently served as Senior Executive Vice President. In his new and expanded role, Bob will oversee the entire spectrum of Solairus’ customer experience strategy, responsible for ensuring that the Company’s commitment to exceptional service is met. Bob’s three-plus decades of aviation experience—both prior to and during his time at Solairus—gives him a wealth of experience and industry knowledge that will benefit the Company as it continues to expand the personalized services offered to its managed clients.

Dan Drohan, Founder and CEO of Solairus, expressed his excitement about Monroe joining the team, stating, “Brent brings a wealth of experience to our team with an impressive track record in leadership roles at both Gulfstream and Bombardier. This deep and wide-reaching expertise and capability in driving successful initiatives within our unique industry is highly valuable as we continue to expand our managed fleet and deliver differentiated services for our valued customers. We are fortunate to have Brent on board and look forward to his leadership.”

Drohan continued, emphasizing Marinace’s pivotal role in elevating the Company’s customer experience strategy: “Since taking over the leadership of the Client Responsible Officer team, Bob has contributed to numerous projects and initiatives that have elevated our brand and the support we provide to managed accounts and their teams. As Chief Experience Officer, a newly created role, we are doubling down on our commitment to exceed the expectations of our valued clients in all that we do.”
