Former TAG Executive Wells Takes Helm of Quest Aircraft

Quest Aircraft Company has selected another industry veteran, Robert Wells, to take the helm of the company as CEO.  Wells succeeded Sam Hill, who retired from the role after a 50-year career in the aviation industry. Hill will remain as an advisor to the company and member of the board of directors.

Wells, who stepped into his new role on January 15, brings more than 40 years of aviation experience to Quest. Most recently he spent 15 years with TAG Aviation, where he had become CEO of the holding company. Retiring from TAG in 2015, Wells remains as an advisor to the board of directors.

“I am very pleased that an individual of Rob’s caliber and talent will be leading Quest moving forward,” said Hill. “Rob’s tenure with TAG Aviation’s family of companies and his broad aviation management experience will be a true asset as Quest continues its worldwide growth.”

In addition to his time with TAG, Wells served with Piedmont Hawthorne for 22 years and began his business aviation career with Beechcraft. He also has experience as an air-taxi pilot, flying in Southeast Alaska, and as a flight instructor.

“The Kodiak is a remarkably successful aircraft, and the company has come a long way in the last few years,” he said. “I am excited to be part of Quest’s next chapter.”
