LENEXA, Kan. – Executive AirShare today announces President and CEO Keith Plumb has decided to leave the company that he co-founded in 2000. Plumb has served as president and CEO since January 2014, following seven years as president and chief operating officer. Prior to that, he served as EVP/COO. His departure will take place in the next 30 to 60 days following a transition plan developed in collaboration with the company’s investment group and executive team. He will remain as CEO until that plan is complete.

“We cannot thank Keith enough for the immense contributions he has made to Executive AirShare, directly impacting the significant growth we have experienced during his tenure,” said Wiley Curran, president and chairman of Curran Companies and management board member of Executive AirShare. “He has always displayed a relentless passion for customer satisfaction. The outstanding team he has built here is certainly testament to this desire. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.”

“It has been a privilege and an honor to work with such a great group of energetic employees, exceptional customers, and committed investors,” said Plumb. “The majority of my career has been building Executive AirShare with Bob Taylor, and it is amazing where the business is today since starting as a Wichita-based company in 2000 with only two aircraft.

“All of the remarkable accomplishments and successes that we shared over the last 18 years would not have been possible without the aviation passion, dedication and hard work by the EAS family. I leave Executive AirShare feeling privileged and honored to have had the opportunity to meet incredible people, travel to amazing destinations, and gain valuable experience leading the professional men and women at Executive AirShare. As a current shareholder, I wish Executive AirShare continued success.”

During the transition period, current Chief Financial Officer John Owen will serve as interim president. The company has immediately begun the search for a new CEO.
