– Embraer has increased its Executive Jets sales team by four, as a result of recent growth in sales in the North American and the Caribbean market. A total of 12 regional sales managers now cover Canada, the U.S., Mexico, and the Caribbean. This is in line with the Company’s continued corporate commitment to being a major player in the business jet industry, with a first-class sales and customer support team.
“The introduction of the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 jets, in October 2005, in the Very Light and Light Jet categories, respectively, was the catalyst for our incredible growth. That was followed by the announcement of the luxurious Lineage 1000, in the Ultra Large segment, and nearly doubling the sales of our Legacy 600 over the past two years,” said Ernest Edwards, Embraer Vice President, Marketing and Sales – USA, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean, Executive Jets.
