Jeffrey Menaged does his best thinking on airplanes, an appropriate setting for a man who is known as a visionary in his profession.
Menaged, founder and CEO of Chief Executive Air (www.chiefexecair.com) in New York City, relishes airborne trips to the West Coast, because as the earth begins to take shape beneath him, so do his ideas.
Founded in 2003, Chief Executive Air is a market leader in providing world wide private jet charter services. Driven by the desire to provide clients with a simple, user-friendly way to buy charter services, Chief Executive Air was founded on the principle of placing the client's needs first and meeting this unmet industry need.
In today's ultra competitive business climate, producing the best product and the best service is a mandate for success. The strategic imperative for Chief Executive Air is providing bold, fast, innovative and tailored services for its customers spanning North America, South America, Europe, Australia and beyond.
This is a reality whereby Menaged has created a corporate culture at Chief Executive Air where the staff is empathetic, flexible, inventive and is able to deliver on even the most impossible request when it comes to a customer demand.
From Menaged's perspective, the customer is king and a trademark of his success rests solely in his ability to provide an excellent product with legendary customer service - whether it is a gourmet meal, special beverages, in-flight entertainment, or any other amenity, in-flight or on-ground. In addition, Menaged's \"Charter Jet Price Guarantee\" and Chairman's Club Program have transformed the industry standard by introducing the idea that the price you are quoted is the price you pay.
In addition to taking better care of people, Menaged emphasizes a need for social responsibility. In 2008, Chief Executive Air was the first charter company to offer a Carbon Offset Program whereby clients purchase carbon credits to fund the production of alternative energy, such as wind power to offset the carbon emissions resulting from their flight.
