The International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA) has a new leader for its International Committee. The Vice President of Sales and Business Development for Levaero Aviation Group, Stan Kuliavas, has agreed to lead the important committee for IADA.
IADA's International Committee is headquartered in Toronto and is charged with growing the group's profile across the world and positively influencing hundreds of global preowned aircraft transactions with a laser focus on transparency and integrity. Kuliavas will replace the founding chair of the IADA International Committee, Zipporah Marmor, Vice President of Aircraft Transactions at ACASS, in Montreal.
Marmor was named chair of the entire IADA organization in October 2022. She formed the International Committee to increase the roster of internationally based dealers and help them in developing processes that ensure transparency and integrity in the sale of preowned aircraft around the world.RELATED STORY:Here is what we learned from the IADA Q4 market report
"IADA is grateful for the leadership of Stan Kuliavas in continuing the mission that Zipporah Marmor began with the formation of the International Committee," IADA Executive Director Wayne Starling said. "Its members from around the world are dedicated to developing standards for efficient, effective and ethical business aircraft transactions."
Roughly 96 percent of IADA dealers do business in North America. About 55 percent of dealers operate in Europe, 49 percent in Latin America, 46 percent in Asia and the Pacific region and 41 percent work in the Middle East and Africa.
IADA dealers make up the top 12 percent of world experts that handle 46 percent of used business aircraft sales. IADA-accredited dealers buy and sell more aircraft by dollar volume than the rest of the world's dealers combined, with an annual average of over 1,100 transactions.
