Levaero Aviation Inc. announced on May 17 that industry veteran Ray Kuliavas has joined its executive team as vice-president with an emphasis on business development.
Kuliavas brings with him more than 40 years of experience in aviation, focusing on key areas of new client acquisition, client retention and overall brand growth as an industry-recognized executive. His previous experience in the industry, including aircraft sales, product marketing management and service development, will contribute to Levaero’s commitment to top-tier customer service and expansion.
“Having Ray Kuliavas join the Levaero team will contribute to the growth of our brand as a top aviation solutions provider,” said Robert Arnone, president and CEO, Levaero Aviation. “His experience will serve as an essential asset, which we look forward to sharing with our current and prospective clients.”
Kuliavas’ extensive experience in bringing new aircraft to the Canadian market will prove to be invaluable as Levaero commences deliveries of the new PC-24 aircraft in Canada. His addition will also ensure customers continue to receive best-of-class support for their aircraft.
In addition to offering and supporting the PC-12 and PC-24 aircraft throughout Canada, Levaero is committed to growing its pre-owned aircraft brokerage business globally. Kuliavas has represented several original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) over the course of his career, and his experience and customer-first approach will allow Levaero to be an immediate authority in the pre-owned aircraft space.
“I’ve admired Levaero’s dedication to customer service and its diverse service offering from afar throughout my career,” said Kuliavas. “To be part of one of Canada’s most competitive aviation providers is an exciting milestone.”
Kuliavas will be joining the Aircraft Sales and Marketing team, based at Levaero’s Toronto, Ont., office.
