Benjamin Johnson, Chief Marketing Officer (Corporate Communications)
Email: email@example.com | Location: United States | Since: October 2012
Ever since I was little I looked up into the sky and was amazed at the beauty of aviation. Then as I started to get older I focused more on the business of running an airline and the hard work and dedication that it requires. Aviation and Business were two things that have stuck with me and that I will most likely take into to my future. I have recently completed my solo and am working to get my private pilots license. Also important to me are my academics and I plan for 2014 to attend the University of Harvard with a BA in Business or Finance and then go back to Harvard Business School to earn my MBA. My family has had a long history in Airlines and one day I hope to be a Executive for one of the major airlines.
