Jeremy Prost Brings Extensive Aerospace Experience In China To The Company
Jeremy Prost, a veteran of aviation in China, has been named by Piper as the company's sales manager for Asia. With a focus of developing Piper sales in China, Prost will be based in Beijing and report to Piper Director of Global Fleet Sales Chuck Glass. "With his extensive aerospace experience in China, Jeremy Prost is an expert at developing general aviation business in that country. His appointment is a key part of Piper's strategy to widen our footprint around the world and to focus on the potential represented in China," said Glass.
Prior to joining the Piper sales team, Prost (pictured in image provided by Piper) was head of the Beijing office for Diamond Aircraft following increasingly responsible positions in sales and customer support with that company and BinAo Aircraft, its manufacturing partner in China. He has considerable experience in fleet training sales, which will be particularly important as the Chinese aviation and aerospace market grows. He also has experience with the World Trading and Gold Sea International Trading Company.
Prost has completed intensive studies of intermediate and Business Chinese at Jinan University, Guangzhou, and basic Chinese at Shanghai University.

Prost's appointment is a key element in Piper's ongoing globalization initiatives that have led to stronger sales and increased dealer representation throughout the world. The company has recently made multiple fleet sales for new aircraft in Asia.
