September 10, 2016
TAG Aviation Asia has announced the recruitment of Jolie Howard as its next chief executive officer, according to Terry Spruce’s article published at the Corporate Jet Investor website on 5 September 2016. Howard’s appointment takes effect in November 2016. She has been serving as the vice president of the Asian segment of CIT’s Business Aircraft Finance since 2013.
The appointment of Howard brings her back to familiar territory, considering that she has previously worked for the company. As Spruce reports: “Howard was the very first employee to be engaged by TAG Asia when the company commenced its business in the region in 2006.” Howard’s many years of experience in Asia’s private aviation industry, along with her familiarity with the company’s regional strategy and overall corporate growth targets, will be valuable assets in her new role.
Howard has welcomed her appointment to the helm of TAG Aviation Asia’s management. Spruce quotes Howard as saying: “I am very excited about the future of TAG and the potential for business growth in this part of the world generally. Together we will continue to build the company and to maintain our position as the leading aviation service provider in the region. I look forward to being part of TAG’s high quality and professional team once again and I feel confident that TAG Asia will go from strength to strength in the future.”
TAG’s board of directors is equally satisfied with its decision to appoint Howard to the crucial position of implementing the company’s operational activities and strategic functions. The board has expressed full confidence in her abilities to steer the company to greater heights. While expressing his confidence in Howard’s capability on behalf of the board, Steven Young cited her tremendous successes when she served as TAG’s director of business development in Asia, according to Spruce. Young sees Howard as a highly professional and knowledgeable executive with the ability to lead transformation and promote teamwork among employees.
