Sojourn Aviation is proud to announce the hiring of Mike Guillemot, a 25 year aviation professional. Mike joins Sojourn Aviation from his most recent position at Hawker Beechcraft Corporation as the Hawker Regional Sales Manager, based in the Chicago area for 16 years.
Mike will join Sojourn as a Partner, with responsibilities that include the expansion of Sojourn’s operations with the opening of a new Chicago-based office. Mike will initially focus his attention on the Chicago region, assisting customers with sales, brokerage and acquisitions - as well as serving as a Midwest consultant for any of their aircraft fleet needs.
“I have known Mike personally for nearly 30 years and have had the privilege to work directly with him during 25 of those in a professional aviation capacity. He has a tremendous proven track record as one of the top Hawker salesmen year after year and has established a remarkable customer base as a direct result of his integrity, customer focus and trust earned with each and every one of his customers,” says Brad Hatt, Managing Partner of Sojourn Aviation. Mike will continue to work with these Customers to provide customized solutions for their specific aircraft needs - regardless of the aircraft manufacturer or new vs. pre-owned aircraft status.
