CHICAGO, Nov., 22, 2021 – Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI), the leading independent provider of maintenance support and financial services to the business aviation industry, has appointed David Caporali as vice president of business development for Latin America.
Caporali brings more than 15 years of industry experience to the role. In his most recent position as director of aircraft sales at aircraft manufacturer Viking Air Limited, Caporali strengthened regional engagement and sales results by building a strong network of local representatives and advancing institutional relations. Caporali began his career at Lider Aviação, where he specialized in regional sales and distribution of Hawker Beechcraft products in Brazil and North America.
“David’s experience building relationships with industry peers, operators, and end users, combined with his depth of business aviation knowledge, particularly in Latin America, place him in an excellent position to lead our sales strategy in the region,” said Francisco Zozaya, senior vice president, global business development & strategy at JSSI. “We feel extremely fortunate to welcome such a talented executive to the business development team as we elevate our service and support to new heights throughout Latin America.”
“What drew me most to JSSI was its drive to deliver products and services that generate real value to customers,” added Caporali. “I am eager to join the team as the business aviation market continues to mature in Latin America and efficient financial planning for aircraft maintenance becomes increasingly important to owners and operators.”
Transitioning from aircraft sales to maintenance product and service sales, Caporali will bring a fresh approach to JSSI’s business development along with extensive international experience. He has previously lived in the U.K., U.S., Thailand, Panama, and Brazil, where he earned his master’s degree from Fundação Dom Cabral business school.
