Former Wall Street executive and Magellan Jets founder, Joshua Hebert, brings the financial savvy of the world’s trading center to the company he launched in September 2008.
In founding Magellan Jets, Joshua realized his dream of melding his passion for aviation with his knowledge and expertise in financial relations which he gleaned from serving at the prestigious of Shearson Lehman, Sands Brothers, and Paine Webber. As a result, when Joshua founded the company he was already an experienced business aviation manager.
In 2000, Joshua helped build Jets International, a private jet company, where he served as sales and marketing director. Joshua became managing partner and Executive Vice President where he managed sales, concierge, aircraft membership, and fulfillment departments. Joshua also oversaw the company’s private jet membership program and on-demand charter sales. In his last year at the company, Joshua brokered an exclusive marketing deal with the New England Patriots.
Prior to making his mark at Jets International, Joshua applied his sales magic at The Boston Business Journal, a division of American City Business Journals, Inc., a Conde Nast company. As the Journal’s sales manager in 1997, he boosted sales by an incredible 800 percent margin and earned the company its highest sales award for the next three years.
In his rare down time, Joshua is a member of the Harvard Club of Boston and serves on several boards of directors including The Heath Evans Foundation, Iowngreen.com, and, previously, Jets.com. He is now the chairman of the board at Magellan Jets.
Joshua serves on the Board of Directors for Raising A Reader Massachusetts. The Raising A Reader Massachusetts mission is to give every child an equal opportunity for achievement by engaging parents from low-income communities in a routine of daily book sharing with their children from birth through age five. The early literacy skills development that Raising A Reader MA promotes is proven to impact school readiness, academic performance and lifetime achievement for children. The goal is to help families across Massachusetts develop the literacy routines that can change children’s lives.
