Hawker Beechcraft Corporation continues to reach into global venues and today announced it is opening a customer gallery in the prestigious Claridge’s Hotel in the heart of Mayfair London. The gallery will be staffed by a team of seasoned professionals who will provide guidance on the full HBC product lineup, including turnkey solutions to aircraft ownership and support. The gallery’s grand opening event will take place on Wednesday, May 25.
“This gallery is a direct result of our ongoing efforts to find new and creative ways to be where our customers are, especially as we continue to expand our international footprint,” said Sean McGeough, HBC president, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). “Claridge’s Hotel is a perfect fit with the international make-up of its guests, as well as its similar heritage with that of HBC.”
Last year the company carried out in-depth discussions with more than 3,000 owners and operators worldwide and established a customer advisory board consisting of 50 owners from 30 countries. The new London gallery is one result from these discussions regarding how to best serve the needs of existing and prospective clients. Further, Claridge’s is seeing an increasing number of guests from the EMEA region, which mirrors the growth in sales that HBC is seeing in this area.
