Working With APAC

“Ailevon Pacific Consulting, specifically Rhett Morgan and Carrie Kelly, have been more than consultants to me and the AVL team.  They have truly immersed themselves in AVL – our market, culture, strengths and opportunities – and they are a true extension of the team.  We have experienced unprecedented success in our air service development in recent years, and I attribute much of the growth to the professional guidance and expertise Ailevon provides.  We have a defined strategic plan, and we work that plan together, and the results have been significantly positive.” — Tina Kinsey – Director of Marketing, PR & Air Service Development
