WICHITA, Kan. (March 6, 2007) – Raytheon Aircraft Company's international sales headquarters, currently based in Geneva, Switzerland, is moving to the manufacturer's production and service facilities in Chester, U.K. The birthplace of the Hawker 800-series, the Chester facility serves as the center of Hawker service and support in Europe, and is a major heavy-maintenance service facility for NetJets® Europe. Sean McGeough, recently appointed vice president, International Sales, will move to the new location effective immediately.
"Sean and his world-class sales team have worked tirelessly to establish the Hawker and Beechcraft brands as the industry standard for maximum value and highest quality," said Brad Hatt, president, Commercial Sales. "The team has grown international sales from 16 percent of overall sales in 2004 to 35 percent in 2006. The ideal location for our international sales office, this move positions us to continue to grow that success."
For the past five years, McGeough has managed Hawker and Beechcraft sales directors in Europe, Africa, India and the Middle East while substantially growing sales in those regions. Since joining the company in 1999, he has worked through the Beechcraft and Hawker product lines – from selling Beechcraft products across the United States to directing Hawker and Beechcraft sales in South Africa and India.
Raytheon Aircraft Company designs, manufactures, markets and supports Hawker and Beechcraft aircraft for the world’s commercial and military markets.
