Ann Pollard is a skilled aviation professional with 30+ years of diverse experience. Before joining Duncan Aviation in September of 2021, Ann held the positions of Vice President/Director of Sales & Acquisitions, Director of Charter and Managed Aircraft Accounts, Airport Manager, and FBO/Operations Manager at Shoreline Aviation. Ann has her FAA Private Pilot’s License and MA Airport Manager License. She has extensive experience with complex aircraft transactions, aircraft management relationships, and development/oversight of completion projects, inspections, and avionics/cabin upgrades.
Ann became an FAA certified pilot before obtaining her driver’s license. The daughter of a career Naval Aviator, Ann is one of six pilots in the Pollard family. Members of her family are involved in many different aspects of aerospace, including military aviation, space, commercial aviation, corporate aviation, and general aviation.
Ann is a detailed-orientated facilitator with a big picture view. She is currently serving on the Board of Directors of the Massachusetts Business Aviation Association and previously served on the NATA Board of Directors, as well as on the boards of several other industry and charitable organizations. Her aircraft sales & acquisition, aircraft management, FBO, and airport management background helped her to develop a unique skill set. Her extensive industry experience helps her relate to the issues that owners, operators and service providers contend with on a daily basis.
Ann has been a part of hundreds of aircraft transactions, and has been involved with many aircraft through multiple ownership changes. Some of her most interesting acquisition projects over the years have involved owner-flown transactions. She enjoys helping owner-pilots pursue their ultimate ownership experience, which often takes many years to achieve. She says that watching someone realize their flying dreams and go from piloting a Diamond DA40 to a Falcon 2000LX (with several steps in-between) is pretty neat.
In 2020, Ann purchased an Airstream Globetrotter. She uses the Airstream as a base for fly- fishing and back-country adventures. Pollard is based out of Duncan Aviation’s Aircraft Sales Office at Bedford-Hanscom Field, Mass. (KBED).
Bottom line, Ann understands the industry. Her perspectives of being an operator, an aircraft broker/broker dealer, a relentless client advocate, and a business person are unique and will pay dividends to both our clients and our organization. Prior to joining our team, I personally was fortunate to work with Ann who was an active member of the Duncan Aviation Customer Advisory Board and provided us with valuable feedback and insight that helped us in our pursuit of continual improvement. I’m extremely pleased that she has joined Duncan Aviation as a member of the Aircraft Sales & Acquisitions team. Director of Aircraft Sales & Acquisitions, Steve Gade
Every transaction is unique and dynamic, and the ability to think outside the box is essential. My goal is to ensure that my client feels that their goals were achieved, and that their brokerage or acquisition transaction was executed smoothly. Fostering and maintaining long-term relationships is important to me.
