SAVANNAH, Ga., February 10, 2014 — Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced the opening of a new sales office in Singapore’s central business district. The centrally located space will give customers more convenient access to Gulfstream resources.
“We opened our first Asia sales office in Singapore in 1988,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Gulfstream. “Then, as now, the office demonstrated our commitment to this market and the growth of business aviation throughout Asia. Having an office in the heart of the business district brings us closer to where our customers do business,
allows us to respond to customer needs more effectively and strengthens our relationships with key stakeholders in the region.”
The new office is located in Asia Square Tower 2 and houses the Gulfstream Singapore sales team, which is led by Jason Akovenko, regional vice president, Asia Pacific. Akovenko reports to Roger Sperry, regional senior vice president, International Sales, Gulfstream.
The Asia-Pacific region is home to more than 235 Gulfstream aircraft. Nearly 80 of those are located in the area that includes Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, India, Pakistan, Australia and New Zealand.
The 2,210-square-foot/205-square-meter space nearly doubles the size of the previous Singapore office and includes individual offices with conference and support facilities. Asia Square Tower 2, located along Marina View at Marina Bay in Singapore, is a twin-tower mixed-use development that also features a five-star hotel, giving Gulfstream easy access to meeting rooms, banquet facilities and additional event space.
Gulfstream Beijing has grown to 45 employees, including more than 20 technicians, and continues to support Gulfstream operators on-site and across Greater China.
