The FBO Manager of the Year award is voted on by the Paragon Aviation Group corporate team. This year’s recipient was Cat Wren, Chief Experience Officer at Business Jet Center (KDAL) in Dallas, TX. “I am truly honored to present Cat this award as she is a selfless leader with a humble heart,” said Megan Barnes, President of Paragon Aviation Group. “Not only does she work tirelessly for Business Jet Center, but she also spearheads the company’s non-profit, Business Jet Cares, which gives back to veterans and the local community.”

Based off FBO Members’ votes and results from customer feedback surveys, the winner of the 2021 Award of Excellence went to Ysabella Tetley, Customer Service Manager at Henriksen Jet Center based at Houston Executive Airport (KTME) in Houston, TX. “Ysabella was instrumental in Henriksen Jet Center-Houston winning major accolades this year including being one of AIN FBO Survey’s Top 5% rated FBOs in the Americas. It was due a lot in part to her tenacity, warm personality, and customer-focus expertise,” commented Scott Jefvert, Paragon Aviation Group’s Director of Sales.
