Canadian, Rob DiCastri brings to the company more than 25 years of international aviation and hospitality leadership, including over 10 years in the Middle East, where he played a key role in establishing National Air Services (flynas) / Net Jets Middle East (now NasJet) in Saudi Arabia as CFO and Head of Strategy.
