We love airplanes and happy clients. We started IAG in 2012 with no real plan other than to do the right thing by our clients and go from there. Having worked for a business jet manufacturer for many years, we saw a lot purchase and sale decisions made for a lot of reasons. We also saw a lot of third-party advisors, consultants and brokers involved in those decisions. Some of them did it really well. So, we adopted many of those ideas and have tried to develop a few of our own along the way.
Overall, it’s about a shared passion for aircraft and creating a positive experience.
