HOUSTON, Texas (October 21, 2019) – Janine Iannarelli, founder and president of Par Avion Ltd, has been Elected Vice Chair of the Board of the European Business Aviation Association’s (EBAA’s) Associate Members Advisory Council (AMAC).
Iannarelli has been a long-time member of both the EBAA (www.ebaa.org) and National Business Aviation Association (www.nbaa.org). She was invited to participate as a member of the EBAA’s AMAC committee in early 2016 and subsequently as Chair of the Sales & Acquisition Committee. As Vice Chair, Iannarelli will serve to support current Chair Paolo Sommariva in his organizational and management duties associated with the AMAC and as well serve as liaison to the EBAA Board of Governors in his absence. As Chair of the Sales & Acquisition Committee, Iannarelli leads the committee in helping to “elevate the science, art and practice of aircraft transactions in Europe and beyond” with a specific goal of drafting guidelines that EBAA members may reference when engaging in the purchase or sale of an aircraft.
“I am honored to have been chosen by my fellow sub-committee chairs to help lead the AMAC and continue to foster the strong relationship between the associate members and EBAA. The Associate Member Advisory Council is an integral part of the greater organization which facilitates dialogue and debate on key issues that impact the broader business aviation community. As a legacy member of EBAA, I have long worked to help showcase the benefits of business aviation in Europe and the far reaching benefits that are derived by having a diversified air transportation network.”
Athar Husain Khan, EBAA Secretary-General said, “EBAA’s effectiveness depends on support from members like Janine. AMAC is the bridge between EBAA and its associate members; it serves as an incubator of projects that bring added value to the business aviation industry. Janine’s contribution to AMAC has been exemplary. It has helped us advance our mission and I look forward to continuing our great collaboration.”
