FORT LAUDERDALE, FL: Christopher Salley, Sales & Marketing Manager of National Jets has been recognized with two 40 Under 40 Awards; the first from Airport Business Magazine and another from the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA). These 40 Under 40 Awards recognize young professionals in aviation for their career accomplishments and dedication to the industry. Airport Business Magazine’s award focuses on honorees from all sectors within the aviation industry and the NBAA has published their inaugural list this year to focus on young professionals specifically in Business Aviation.
“We are very excited for Chris that these two organizations recognized him as a 40 under 40 top innovator and also someone who is dedicated to the further development of corporate aviation through his work as an industry board member,” stated Sam Robbin, President & CEO of National Jets. “National Jets is proud to have Chris as an instrumental part of our team and we congratulate him on being named as a member of these 40 under 40 groups.”
“I’ve always admired those who have been selected and recognized in years past and I’m honored to be chosen in 2018,” said Salley. He continued, “Aviation has become a way of life for me – not just an occupation. My hope is to continue working with other young professionals in our industry and grow in both knowledge and responsibility. Together, we will create the strongest core in Business Aviation for our future.”
Christopher will be recognized in the October 2018 issue of Airport Business Magazine and by NBAA at the October 2018 Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (BACE).
