Anthony Tivnan

President, Magellan Jets

Anthony Tivnan, President and Co-Owner of Magellan Jets, was solidified as a major player in the world of private aviation long before the company’s launch, in 2008.

In 2002, a novice to the aviation industry, Anthony made his mark at Jets International. As a member of the sales team, he was quick to become a prominent leader and mentor. After years of leadership and record-breaking sales history, Anthony was eventually appointed as the Executive Vice President. He also managed their retail sales department and sales teams in both Massachusetts and New York City.

Through his leadership, Magellan Jets has seen incredible growth since its inception. In the last four consecutive years, Magellan Jets has been awarded by the Boston Business Journal as one of Massachusetts Fastest Growing Companies, and has made the Inc. 5000 five years consecutively.

Anthony works closely with Magellan Jets marketing and sales divisions to strengthen the brand name and innovate the way Magellan clients utilize business jets. Magellan Jets was the first company to appear on iTunes with their Private Jet Search App, allowing users to search, book and sign for a charter in a matter of minutes all from a smartphone device. The innovation doesn’t stop there; Magellan Jets was also the first jet card provider to launch a Wi-Fi Jet Card for business travelers. With his sales background, Anthony is the ideal candidate to translate the client’s needs and expectations into results. Anthony strives to create and retain strong customer and vendor relationships through his belief in personal attention and open communication. He truly executes the entire operation; from creating the product line, to reaching the audience, to obtaining the trust of each and every client he works with. Anthony was recently featured by Boston Magazine as one of “10 Boston Men of the Moment”.

Anthony frequently speaks at conferences and events about entrepreneurialism, business aviation and innovation. He has spoken as an expert regarding aviation safety during ACSF’s annual symposium at NTSB Training Center in Virginia. He recently spoke at a Camp Harbor View panel for local students, hosted by Boston College and Camp Harbor View. His candid, frank speaking style, and honest commentary at the adversity he has overcome to achieve success is powerful and resonates with his audiences. He was asked to speak on the Transportation Panel during BostInno’s State of Innovation Conference, the Aviation Fraternity National Conference, Bentley College, Harvard University and has appeared as an aviation expert on Fox 25 and other news broadcasts.

Anthony completed pilot ground school at Alpha One Flight School in Plymouth, Massachusetts. He serves on the Board of Directors at Magellan Jets, Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) and Camp Harbor View in Boston. Anthony and his team at Magellan Jets volunteer annually at various Camp Harbor View events, as well.
