Prior to joining JSSI, Zozaya spent more than a decade as pre-owned director for Aerolineas Ejecutivas (ALE), where he managed the pre-owned aircraft sales and acquisitions business unit. He established an extensive network within the global aviation broker and financial communities, and with OEMs and MROs, while facilitating key industry alliances for the largest business aviation company in Latin America. Zozaya graduated from Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City as an industrial engineer.
