Episode #15: Influential Flight
René Banglesdorf is co-founder (along with her husband, Curt) and CEO of Charlie Bravo Aviation, an Austin, TX-based company that buys, sells and leases corporate aircraft worldwide. Having started in 2008 her firm works with government entities, non-profits, corporations both large and small, and private individuals and has closed deals in more than 40 different countries ranging from hundreds of thousands to over $30 million dollars.
René is part of an elite group—only 4-6% of high-level aviation positions are held by women in North America and Europe. Among her advocacy for this group, in 2018, she held organized and emceed the IAWA Inaugural GA Women’s Leadership Forum, with more than 100 female leaders from the industry in attendance.
Topics they discussed include:
- How René became involved in what has traditionally been a very male-dominated industry and the success principles she used throughout her climb.
- Why her profession—while important to her—is simply the “MacGuffin” that allows her to accomplish what she feels driven to contribute.
- How even though women and men both “Crush It” by utilizing the same principles of success, the two genders tend to do so differently. (This is absolutely fascinating!)
- Lessons for younger women that will make a big, big difference.
