world. Discover what drives the soaring success of Hugh Courtenay.
South Florida pleasures:
“The abundance of good eating houses! I especially like the stone crabs
when in season, the weather, the waterways and in particular the people
who are generally always friendly and helpful.”
Why aviation hooked me:
“Every day is different. We love the challenge that brings, in terms of
ensuring the professional attitude and unbeatable service that lets us win
deals from our competition!”
What keeps us on our toes:
“It’s all about being smarter than the competition: it’s become a real
cutthroat marketplace and that makes us even more determined to win.”
What fuels our leadership success:
“I think I am the same as most business owners: failure is not an option.
I want to succeed.”
The rewards of my Alliance membership:
“Apart from the weather, the food and the great looking people? From
a business perspective, there are great tax advantages. Quite a few
successful people reside in Florida, many of whom are Alliance members.
And many of whom are our clients.”
