RYE BROOK, NY (April 2016) – Roger Woolsey, seasoned aviator, branding expert and CEO of Million Air, will be the featured speaker at The Business Council of Westchester’s People’s United Bank Leadership Conversation Series event on May 17.

Million Air, which has operations at Westchester County Airport, is the third largest fixed-based operation chain in the world, providing upscale private aviation services to airports, individuals and corporate flight departments. The company provides aircraft charter, fuel, aircraft maintenance and support services across the U.S., Canada, South America, the Caribbean, Africa and Asia.

Prestige Touring catered to flying rock & roll bands on music tours including Billy Joel, Sting, Grateful Dead, Stevie Nicks, U2, Peter Frampton, Reba, Garth Brooks and Elton John.
