"Moore School alumnus Glenn Gonzales (PMBA ’13) has combined his experience with the Air Force, flying and sales with his Professional MBA business skills to launch Jet It, a company that sells jets to owners who purchase part of a plane with a setup similar to timeshares.
Gonzales, a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force, served on active duty for 10 years and has been a reservist for the past 10 years and counting. He was in an executive sales support role for Gulfstream Aerospace when he decided to enroll in the Professional MBA program at the Moore School.
