As part of its expansion, the company is also implementing its Vertis Charter Management Program in the region, replicating its original European business model to support owners and/or operators looking for outsourced professional charter sales management.
“Vertis focuses purely on what we do best, sourcing the right charter aircraft for each client mission. This enables the operators to focus solely on operations, yet still generate revenue from the asset, and it provides the customers with access to a wider range of aircraft through the Vertis boutique charter service,” said Jeffrey Emmenis, CEO, Vertis Aviation. Emmenis notes Vertis is now in its ninth year of operations leveraging this business model.
Vertis this week was also confirmed as an Argus Certified Broker. There are currently only 11 Argus Certified Brokers worldwide. “The audit revealed a well run, professionally structured business that puts the client at the centre of all it does,” said Edward Wandall, safety director, Argus. “We are delighted to welcome them to the Argus scheme, particularly in the month they expand their U.S. presence.”
Vertis will continue to market a portfolio of long-range business aircraft, including two Boeing business jets. The new U.S. presence adds to the company’s existing network of offices in Dubai, Cape Town and Zug (headquarters).
“We are successful pioneers of our specific business model in the EMEA region,” said Emmenis. “We have an amazing international network of clients and our Argus certification officially recognizes the standards we’ve been delivering for years. We are really very excited about the opportunities in the Americas.”
