"With his extensive aerospace experience in China, Jeremy Prost is an expert at developing general aviation business in that country. His appointment is a key part of Piper’s strategy to widen our footprint around the world and to focus on the potential represented in China," said Glass.
Prior to joining the Piper sales team, Prost was head of the Beijing office for Diamond Aircraft following increasingly responsible positions in sales and customer support with that company and BinAo Aircraft, its manufacturing partner in China. He has considerable experience in fleet training sales, which will be particularly important as the Chinese aviation and aerospace market grows. He also has experience with the World Trading and Gold Sea International Trading Company.
Prost has completed intensive studies of intermediate and Business Chinese at Jinan University, Guangzhou, and basic Chinese at Shanghai University. He has also completed graduate studies in business at Ecole Supérieure de Commerce in Montpellier, France, and he holds a bachelor of arts from the University of Wolverhampton in England. He also studied business at Claude Bernard, Villefranche sur Saône, France. He is fluent in Chinese, English and his native French.
Prost’s appointment is a key element in Piper’s ongoing globalization initiatives that have led to stronger sales and increased dealer representation throughout the world. The company has recently made multiple fleet sales for new aircraft in Asia.
