George J. Priester Aviation Announces Leadership Elevations


WHEELING, IL (MARCH XX, 2024) – George J. Priester Aviation announces the creation of a new leadership team structure, further enhancing company-wide support of its brands; strengthening the regional bases and customer-facing teams that directly serve and interact with clients.

With the move, Brent Moldowan will become the George J. Priester’s CEO and President, while Andy Priester, the third generation to lead the family-owned company, will continue as Chairman. Moldowan, who previously served the company as President of Mayo Aviation, will also maintain leadership at the Rocky Mountain-located division until a new Base President is named and in place.

“We’re uniting our entire team together where technology and best practices can be shared. It’s a cohesive way to support our front-line employees, who have built long-standing relationships with and understand the unique needs of our customers in each region,” said Andy Priester.

Joining Moldowan on the leadership team are Viviana Kozin, Chief Operating Officer; Stephanie Waldron, Chief Financial Officer; Rich Ropp, Chief Sales and Services Officer; and Stephanie Mueller, Chief Talent Officer.

The new structure will help incorporate the same technology platforms across each base and help develop ways to support similar departments, leveraging the national resources and capabilities of the larger company.

Each regional base – Priester Aviation in the Midwest, Mayo in the West, and Hill Private Aviation in the Southeast – will have a Base President to lead it, and continue to provide the personal aircraft owner and charter services for which they have been known for decades.
