Jet Edge International Announces Three New Executive Hires

As Jet Edge continues to operate as one of the industry’ leading large-cabin jet platforms, the company is hiring a trio of new executives to further strengthen the company’s senior management team. The strategic hires include new Chief Financial Officer Michael Sanders, who joins Jet Edge along with new Vice President of Operations Terry Lentz and Vice President of Aircraft

Sales Clayton Smith. The three new executive additions come alongside recent news of Jet Edge successfully completing a $60 million round of investment with Solace Capital Partners to further support company growth.

Among the new hires, Chief Financial Officer Michael Sanders has established himself as an executive experienced in rapidly growing advertising companies. Sanders comes to Jet Edge from the consumer product and fashion industries, where he oversaw highly successful brands during aggressive growth stages such as Ergo Baby and Big Strike. He started his career at Ernst & Young in their mergers and acquisitions division. As CFO, Sanders will be charged with assisting in forecasting, budgeting, and working with Jet Edge as the company further scales up its business. Sanders is a graduate of the University of San Diego.

Terry Lentz is Jet Edge’s new Vice President of Operations. He arrives at Jet Edge from Jet Aviation, where he successfully oversaw operations as well as charter management. Before his seven-year run at Jet Aviation, Lentz worked at TWC Aviation. Lentz’s career has been dedicated to working in the private aviation and travel industries. As the new Vice President of Operations, Lentz will be responsible for successfully managing Jet Edge’s fleet and flight operations, as well as streamlining all related mechanisms to make sure systems run safely and efficiently. Lentz is a graduate of Montclair State University in New Jersey.

Jet Edge also welcomes Clayton Smith as the new Vice President of Aircraft Sales. Smith comes to Jet Edge after a ten-year post with XO Jet. Smith will focus on whole aircraft sales, aircraft management sales, and Jet Edge’s current enterprise accounts.
