Brian Henkel

Brian Henkel is the founder and CEO of Elite Team Logistics, responsible for business worldwide. He also oversees the company's day-to-day operations and is in close contact with all team members at all levels of the corporation. Brian Henkel founded Elite Team Logistics in 2016, having a vision to revolutionize and elevate the customer service experience. Elite Team Logistics emerged when the world shut down due to Covid 19, and other aviation companies struggled to find footing. The team joined forces with the American Government and other world entities to re-patronize American citizens and return them to the land of the free and home of the brave. In his previous roles in the aviation industry, Brian served as a flight attendant for private and commercial airlines, coordinator of in-flight concierge logistics, and director of in-flight services. Brian's aviation experience, communications degree, and compassion for people drive his enthusiasm for the charter aviation industry and focus on passenger and client satisfaction. Throughout the last seven years, Brian has infused his pillars of success into the fabric of our corporate identity, making Elite Team Logistics an internationally known and locally respected company serving our clients coast-to-coast with integrity and professionalism. When Brian is not working as part of the ETL team, he enjoys time with his two adolescent children, family, and friends.
