Started with the airlines as a pilot (First Officer on EMB-110) in 1988 in the USA and then moved through the pilot ranks to Captain and Instructor/training pilot/fleet captain/program manager and then various flight operations management positions – eventually Manager of Operations. Moved to Director Safety Security and Compliance in 2008. In 2010 was tasked by my then company to come to Vietnam to startup an airline for them along with Vietnamese Investors (Air Mekong). At Air Mekong I was COO and accountable manager 2010-2013 . After Air Mekong suspended operations - moved to Jetstar Pacific Airlines as Head of Safety initially for 8 months and then to the Chief Operating Officer position from August 2014 until present.
