Edgar Alacan has served as an entrepreneur and executive in the private jet industry for more than a decade. In 2007, he left a career in finance to join the startup Concord Private Jet, having been curious about the private travel industry for many years. Edgar Alacan soon discovered that he had a talent for the coordination of flight logistics in addition to tracking the company budget.

Combining these skills with a passion for the private jet lifestyle, Edgar Alacan joined forces with two former colleagues to establish Jets.com in 2008. Since then, he has facilitated the company's growth through goal-focused strategy and the creation of marketing materials. He was quoted in the company's feature mention in Newsweek in 2015 and shortly thereafter received his own write-up in Industry Magazine, in which he described the company's competitive rates as well as its diversity of destinations and aircraft.

Edgar Alacan continues to offer clients flexible scheduling and varied options for booking, which include both single-fare charters and flight cards. He balances his leadership of the company with service as a board member of Pietro's Fight, which raises awareness and funds to fight Duchenne muscular dystrophy, or DMD.
