Paul Hathaway
Director of Marketing


GROTON, CT, June 18th, 2020 – The Columbia® group of aviation companies today announced that Paul Hathaway has joined the organization as Director of Marketing. Paul will be working closely with Ken Dono and Clay Hammond to continue the growth of the company’s sales portfolio, in particular the Daher TBM very fast turboprop sales program.

“It’s a testament to our business culture that one of our customers would want to join the Columbia team”, said Co-Founder Art Maurice. “We’ve had a great relationship with Paul since he acquired his TBM from us in 2014, and we’re thrilled to have him on board. As an experienced owner he brings a different perspective to our sales and marketing group. In this, our 40th year in business, and even in a difficult economy, Columbia continues to invest in talent and our TBM program in order to serve our customers better.”

“My aircraft ownership journey has taught me that the experience of having a personal airplane is defined not only by the quality of the product, but also by the quality of the organization which helps you operate it,” said Paul Hathaway. “In the 6 years that I have owned my TBM, I’ve not only gained an appreciation for what a remarkable airplane the TBM is, but also just how important it is to be partnered with a world-class sales, support and maintenance organization. Columbia has made owning my aircraft a pleasure and I am excited to now be part of their team.”
