Gulfstream Aerospace is extending its reach in South America with the appointment of Grupo Aeronáutico as the authorized international sales representative in Ecuador and Peru. Under the authorization, Grupo Aeronáutico will promote and support Gulfstream’s sales efforts throughout both countries.
“Gulfstream continues to see the potential for significant growth opportunities in South America, especially in Ecuador and Peru,” said Scott Neal, senior v-p of worldwide sales for Gulfstream. “Adding Grupo Aeronáutico to our representative network will allow Gulfstream to further capitalize on the increasing interest in our full range of aircraft in these two countries.”
Grupo Aeronáutico has provided transaction services, strategic advice, market research, fleet planning, aircraft operations, and management throughout Latin America. The organization will coordinate closely with Pedro Ruiz, Gulfstream’s regional v-p of sales for South America, and Brent Monroe, Gulfstream’s regional senior v-p of sales for the Western U.S. and Latin America.
“Our relationship with Gulfstream will help continue to grow Gulfstream’s presence in the Ecuadorian market,” said Jimmy Ballesteros, director for Ecuador at Grupo Aeronáutico. Juan Pablo Chirinos, director for Peru at Grupo Aeronáutico, added, “Gulfstream already has a significant presence in Peru in both the super-midsize and large-cabin segment…and we look forward to continuing to grow their presence even further.”
