Nadav, a familiar face to all associated with Asian Sky Group, joined the company shortly after its foundation in 2012. Since then he has increasingly taken on more managerial roles, while retaining his main responsibility for developing and growing the company’s aircraft transaction and consultancy business units. These include his initiation and supervision of aviation transactions, business aviation advisory, and consultancy projects for a vast range of business jet and rotary operations and for a diverse range of corporations, financial institutions, private owners, and government entities throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
Wu Zhendong, Chairman of ASG, remarked: “Nadav has been a bedrock for our business over the past decade. He’s been a great leader and has performed well despite challenging conditions over the past 2 years, deftly managing his team at the same time, so I know ASG is in the best possible hands. We are equally as excited to welcome Tan who will drive Asian Sky Media to new heights in Asia and on the global stage. Considering his numerous years of experience and diverse background in digital media, we look forward to the coming years.”
Wu adds, “In 2020 I said ASG came through with one of its best years. I’m extremely pleased to report now that 2021 was a record year, with all our business units contributing positively to the bottom line. Our income nearly tripled as a result of increased revenues and, in particular, due to us further adapting our mode of operations to the challenging times we are all continuing to experience. This sets us up perfectly for continued success in 2022 and gives our incoming Managing Directors firm ground for future executions. The Board and I look forward to working with them both.”
Nadav commented, “Asian Sky Group has gone through an impressive transformation over the years and I’m very proud of being a meaningful part of that process. ‘Never a dull moment’ and the past two year have been no less than profound for the company and our business. We are now strongly poised for continued growth and new achievements.”
Tan commented, “I am very excited to be joining the great Asian Sky Media team and in particular working with its Media & Communications Director, Alud Davies and Joey Wong, its Media Sales Director. I believe Asian Sky Media’s success and brand reputation proves its value to the business aviation community. I look forward to helping the business evolve as the aviation environment changes and new media technologies emerge.”
