Guardian Jet Adds GE Capital Alum as VP, Northeast

Mike McCafferty was named vice president, Northeast for Guardian Jet, a Guilford, CT-based business aviation consulting and brokerage firm. In his new position, McCafferty will lead the effort to continue its presence in the Northeastern region.

“Mike McCafferty adds yet another dimension to our team,” said Mike Dwyer, managing partner of Guardian Jet. “He’s an expert at gauging the tempo and the level of interaction necessary to communicate effectively with busy principals. And the proof is in the results. In the short time since he’s been on board, Mike’s already secured several new Guardian accounts. Coming out of the gate quickly is one of the hallmarks of a seasoned professional.”

Prior to joining Guardian Jet, McCafferty had a 10-year career with Ohio-based fractional jet provider Flexjet. As the regional sales director at Flexjet, he was responsible for sales development in the New York City area as well as marketing and promoting of a variety of services, including the Flexjet card program, fractional membership and aircraft leasing solutions. He also managed key strategic accounts among the firm’s Fortune 500 and high-net-worth clients.

Previously, McCafferty had an 18-year sales career in the equipment leasing industry, the majority of which was at GE Capital.

“My experience in the fractional arena involved working with clients entering private aviation for the first time, as well as those considering a move into whole aircraft ownership,” McCafferty said. “It was a very consultative role, which made my move to Guardian Jet a logical extension of that experience. Guardian is known as the preeminent advisory firm in this space, with decades of expertise and industry-leading tools for managing aviation assets. I look forward to putting those tools to work on behalf of our clients.”
