Trevor Lambarth to Lead Guardian Jet’s European Aircraft Sales and Acquisitions
GUILFORD, Conn. – March 22, 2016 – Guardian Jet (guardianjet.com), the Guilford, Connecticut-based aviation brokerage firm, announced today that longtime aviation professional Trevor Lambarth has been named Vice President of Sales, Europe.
Lambarth’s new position follows upon his extensive, 27-year career with Bombardier Aerospace, where he served in several key positions, the last of which was as Vice President of Sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. In his new position, Lambarth will be the first European-based executive for Guardian Jet.
“We are very excited to have Trevor Lambarth join the Guardian team,” said Don Dwyer, Managing Partner of Guardian Jet, LLC. “He is the consummate professional with an extraordinary career’s worth of experience.”
Dwyer added that Lambarth is particularly well-suited to Guardian Jet’s consultative approach to business, buying and selling aircraft for its customers by researching and providing them with industry-leading data and information.
“We’ve always bought and sold aircraft around the world, but with Trevor on board, we can significantly enhance our global presence,” Dwyer explained. “More than just wanting to open up Europe, our strategy has been to seek out and find a world-class teammate. The fact that Trevor is based in Europe is a bonus.”
Lambarth brings nearly three decades of global experience in aviation sales, acquisitions and leasing to his new position. Based in the U.K., he holds a degree in Mathematics from the University of Southampton. A former pilot in the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve, he later spent six years at British Aerospace, working on both commercial and business aircraft programs. He then joined McAlpine Aviation, a business aircraft operator, where he was responsible for sales of the company’s wide range of aircraft management and maintenance services. He joined Bombardier as sales manager for Short Brothers, the oldest aircraft manufacturer in the world, subsequently moving into the corporation’s business aircraft division. At Bombardier, Lambarth distinguished himself by leading sales for 150 aircraft with a combined value of nearly USD$3 billion.
“I’ve spent the past three decades building long-term customer relationships based on trust, and I look forward to continuing this while expanding Guardian Jet’s presence in Europe,” said Lambarth. “I really feel confident that, in Guardian Jet, I am joining a company fully in tune with my own ethos and values.”
