Priester Aviation Adds Aircraft Management Vice President to Leadership Team
Priester Aviation’s strengths come from offering personal attention and professional solutions to its private aviation clients. Priester has assembled a team of experts who deliver daily on the eight-decade heritage of customer service. To strengthen that commitment and to better serve Priester’s aircraft-owner clients, the company announces the addition of Andrew Fischer as Vice President of Aircraft Management.
Fischer brings nearly 30 years of aviation experience to Priester, having worked for some of the biggest names in corporate aviation, including Jet Linx, Pentastar and NetJets. He will oversee Priester’s industry-leading, professional aircraft management team, which creates programs structured to meet aircraft owners’ individual needs and tailored to make their ownership experience easier.
“Andrew brings a strong sense of leadership to the Priester team,” says Rich Ropp, President of Priester Aviation. “He’s an experienced professional who has built and led teams before, always looking for better ways to serve customers’ needs. He has done so much in so many areas of aviation, that he understands how each component complements the other. Andrew’s new business development acumen will grow Priester’s ability to reach potential customers and prospects.”
After Fischer’s graduation from the Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in aviation management, he worked for 19 years at NetJets, serving as program manager before becoming Vice President of Sales at the fractional aircraft provider. At Pentastar Aviation, he worked as an aircraft management consultant. Working more recently at Jet Linx, Fischer added aircraft to its fleets at Midwest bases through its aircraft management programs. He also has experience with jet card sales, complementing Priester’s recent relaunch of its Centerline Jet Card program.
“Priester’s long history and family-run leadership stands out in aviation,” says Fischer, who is based near Columbus, Ohio. “It is an honor to connect with a company that prioritizes its clients above all and delivers aircraft owners unmatched value.”
