Dustin is attracted to people with bold ideas. On his 30th birthday his cousin, Ken, told him, “your next 6 years are free”. Ken flew an F-4 and was shot down at 30 then spent the next 6 years as a POW. This became Dustin’s WHY – helping others make their freedom count.
He is a former VP and sales executive with both Cessna Citation and Embraer Executive Jets, and current President of jetAVIVA - a market leader in turbine aircraft sales & acquisitions.
A #1 ranked sales professional at every stop, he’s been responsible for aircraft sales of almost $1 billion dollars. As a committee member and former Co-chair of the NBAA Business Aviation Management Committee Leadership Conference he exemplifies the unique bond of business and fun that is aviation.
Dustin graduated from the United States Air Force Academy with honors and was an instructor and evaluator in both the C-21A & KC-135R. He currently lives in Atlanta with Kristen, his wife of over 23 years, his 4 children and 2 dogs.
