WICHITA, KS – To satisfy demand for new products like the Hawker 4000 and Hawker 750, Hawker Beechcraft announces its newest international sales office in Vienna, Austria. Located on the Ringstraße in the heart of Vienna’s business and tourism district, the new sales office will provide a permanent location for the Hawker Beechcraft sales team to serve its European customers. Byron Severson, regional sales director of Hawker aircraft Central and Eastern Europe and who has been in Vienna since January, will oversee the Vienna office.
"Demand for our aircraft in Europe is growing, and the new sales office in Vienna will not only help meet the customer demand but also expand our presence in the region," says Sean McGeough, vice president, International Sales. "For years, Vienna has been the hub of Eastern European commerce, and positioning our new sales office in this niche location allows us to further augment Hawker Beechcraft’s international sales team growth."
In recent years the company’s overall international activity has increased significantly.
"With nearly 65 percent of our new commercial aircraft bookings coming from the international region, we have reorganized and expanded our sales team over the past year to respond to the growing demands for business aircraft," says Brad Hatt, president, Commercial Sales. "We’re excited about the new location in Vienna as well as the experience Byron will bring to the progress taking place in Eastern Europe."
