Two Industry Veterans Join Expanded NBAA Regional Rep Program; New Mid-Atlantic Region Added
The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) today announced that Paige Kroner and Brittany Davies have been named Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regional representatives, respectively. The move marks an expansion of NBAA’s regional program to seven regions.
“Our members often tell us they greatly value the presence of an NBAA regional advocate when decisions, regulations, airport concerns and other issues need to be addressed at local, state and regional levels,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. “With the addition of the Mid-Atlantic region, NBAA’s regional representation program will allow for an even more robust level of business aviation advocacy for our members.”
Steve Hadley, NBAA regional programs senior director and Southwest regional representative, said: “By expanding our program to form a Mid-Atlantic region, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, DC, will now have the dedicated attention of Paige Kroner, whom we are delighted to bring on as our seventh NBAA regional representative. Paige is highly qualified, given her decades-long experience in working with people throughout the region.”
Prior to joining NBAA in 2014, Kroner worked for Signature Flight Support at all three Washington, DC-area airports, serving as manager of industry and government affairs, then as FBO duty manager at Washington Dulles International Airport. She is a recognized expert on TSA’s DCA Access Standard Security Program, and participates on a variety of industry boards and committees. Kroner has been honored for her industry commitment and leadership with such awards as the Women in Corporate Aviation’s Leadership Scholarship and NBAA’s Silk Scarf Award.
Brittany Davies is NBAA’s new Northeast regional representative, following Dean Saucier’s retirement after 17 years of dedicated service. The newly reconfigured Northeast region now includes Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York and New Jersey.
Davies is a long-time business aviation advocate with direct involvement in grassroots organizations. Most recently, she has been president of Wind Shift Consulting, a firm focusing on strategic marketing and development within the business aviation industry. Davies is a multi-engine, instrument and commercial rated pilot.
Davies’ experience includes charter scheduling and sales, hangar development and aerial photography. She has been serving as the first executive director of the Westchester Aviation Association in White Plains, NY and has represented the Northeast as vice chair of NBAA’s Local and Regional Groups Committee. In 2007, she was a founding member of the Colorado Aviation Business Association.
