Chris Riley joins the team at Columbia Aircraft Sales, Inc.

(Groton, CT – June 2, 2021) Columbia Aircraft Sales, Inc., is pleased to welcome Chris Riley to our team in Groton, Connecticut. Chris Riley comes to us from the Baltimore area with over 20 years of sales and marketing experience, including some experience with brokering a wide range of aircraft makes and models.

Relationships and service are attributes that matter to Chris, who has been flying since 2003.  During his career he has also served the business community in various capacities ranging from business consultant to serving on state and local legislative committees.  He is also a past member of the International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI).  Chris forged strong and diverse ties in his community, having been a volunteer firefighter, USA Field Hockey and Lacrosse umpire, and a medic for the Maryland Neonatal Transport Team.  Chris looks forward to relocating to Southeastern Connecticut with his wife Anousheh and daughter Cassidy, and to making similar connections in his new community here.

We know that Chris takes as much care, effort, and pride in helping his clients with their aircraft needs as he does in protecting and helping his community.  We could not be prouder and more excited to have him join our team. All of us at Columbia are confident that Chris’s love for general aviation, his natural affability and his entrepreneurial spirit will guarantee him a successful career in sales with Columbia Aircraft Sales, Inc.
