ProJet Aviation, a fixed base operator at Leesburg Executive Airport, has named Julie O’Brien as its general manager, and Tina Gray as controller. They will share the primary responsibilities for managing the daily operations of ProJet’s flight support activities at the airport.
“We are thrilled to promote these two dynamic leaders in our organization,” CEO Shye Gilad said. “Julie and Tina have complementary strengths, and display a commitment to hospitality that is a hallmark of our culture and the ProJet brand.”
O’Brien began her 19-year aviation career with Whirlwind Aviation and held numerous positions in scheduling, dispatch, marketing, sales, and public relations at Frederick Aviation, Encore, and Landmark Aviation before joining the ProJet as director of marketing in 2008. She was promoted to director of FBO Operations in 2010, and will continue to oversee marketing activities as part of her new role.
Gray has more than 17 years of aviation experience at Leesburg Executive Airport, serving in several leadership roles in account management and finance with Piedmont Hawthorne and Landmark Aviation, before joining ProJet as the accounting manager in 2012. As controller, she will have oversight of facilities and revenue management in addition to financial accountability.
