Seattle, WA — FBO Partners, a Seattle-based FBO consulting firm, announces the addition of Alec Maguire as Senior Partner.  Alec Maguire, in conjunction with his father, the renowned commercial real estate developer Robert Maguire, previously founded and grew Maguire Aviation into the largest Fixed Base Operation (FBO) at Van Nuys Airport (VNY), one of the busiest general aviation airports in the world.  After substantial acquisitions of competing FBOs at Van Nuys, and development of a dedicated facility for fractional provider NetJets, Maguire Aviation was sold to Signature Flight Support in December of 2013.

“Alec brings substantial FBO development, real estate and branding experience to FBO Partners,” notes Doug Wilson, President of FBO Partners.  “His experience growing Maguire Aviation into the largest FBO at the busiest general aviation airport is not only a credit to his business savvy, but underscores his strong marketing and branding capabilities, both of which are key assets to clients of FBO Partners,” adds Wilson.  Of note, Maguire Aviation was continually ranked as the Top FBO at VNY in the Aviation International News Annual FBO Survey.

Says Maguire of joining FBO Partners, “The opportunity to formally collaborate with both Doug and Todd, two colleagues whom I have enjoyed working with in the past, is a genuine pleasure.  Our complementary talents, realized collectively under the FBO Partners banner, represents a unique and diversified offering for our client base. It goes without saying that my enthusiasm and confidence associated with our team is unparalleled.”

Prior to the FBO’s founding, Maguire served as a corporate pilot and aircraft management VP.  He will practice out of California for FBO Partners.
