Gulfstream Aerospace has announced the appointment of Julien Nargeot as regional vice president of Sales for Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and Brian McCarthy as regional sales manager in the region. Nargeot joins Gulfstream with 12 years’ experience with a business-jet original equipment manufacturer, where he held a pilot type rating and was involved with pilot training and operational support, aircraft technical support and customer service. More recently, he spent seven years in new aircraft sales for the Middle East. Nargeot holds a master’s degree in aeronautical engineering from France’s École Supérieure des Techniques Aéronautiques et de Construction Automobile (ESTACA), which included a year of aerospace and space mechanics study at Kasetsart University in Bangkok.

McCarthy comes to Gulfstream with nine years of business aviation experience. He previously worked as a sales manager for an aircraft brokerage company and was responsible for the sale and acquisition of pre-owned and new business aircraft in the Northeast U.S. and Asia-Pacific markets. McCarthy earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration, with a joint emphasis in finance and management, from the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business. The Gulfstream regional sales manager works with the regional vice president to cultivate leads and generate sales of new aircraft.

Nargeot and McCarthy report to Roger Sperry, Gulfstream’s regional senior vice president of Sales for Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Florida, and are based in Gulfstream’s Singapore office.
