Jillian Wise was promoted to Portfolio Manager, Aviation Finance in 2019, and her aviation finance team funded 75% of her annual target in one quarter.
John Chvatal said, “I launched my business website. I am still tweaking things but I strongly feel I got a lot right because of the guidance I received from ABCI. The best part is I’m gradually being integrated into the ABCI team!”
Last year’s scholarship recipients were chosen based on two essays – the first about how they will use the resources provided by the scholarship, the second about how they will use the skills and experience they bring to benefit the group.
The Aviation Sales and Marketing Lab is a group of ABCI clients and industry thought leaders who share strategies, tactics and results. The Lab also includes an Aviation Sales Basics Certification Course, a Book Club, marketing and SEO tools and software. The two primary winners will also receive custom one-on-one consulting.
“I was really impressed with the quality of applications last year, and I expect the same this year!” said Paula Williams, President of ABCI. “Last year’s Scholarship Committee did such a lot of hard work in getting the word out and helping us find the best possible candidates. Benet Wilson, Joni Lampert Schultz, Jeffrey Stodola, Kathryn Creedy and Kasey Dixon, as well as John Williams, who made this possible. We’ll be asking the same folks, as well as our Scholarship Alumni, to participate as well.
“Magical things happen when you put good people together, and the background these folks bring to the table is beyond what we could have hoped for.“

About the Aviation Sales and Marketing Lab –
After informally introducing clients to one another on several occasions, ABCI founders Paula and John Williams noticed that these introductions often led to creative referrals, co-marketing arrangements, and other mutually profitable endeavors.
ABCI created a private social media group, a book club, interactive webinars, in-person events and other resources to foster these relationships among aviation companies. Silver and Gold level members also receive one-on-one sales and marketing consulting services, in the form of “office hours,” at deeply discounted rates.
