Chief Executive Officer
Having grown up at his parents’ flight school, Nik was immersed in the world of private aviation at an early age. He flew his first plane at an age when most kids were learning how to ride a bike. By the time he was 16, Nik was licensed to fly solo. By age 19, he was piloting jets. In his 20s, he received his mechanic certification and became an avionics technician.
Now as CEO of Ventura, Nik leads an extraordinary team of pilots, mechanics, operations, sales, and customer service professionals that work together to create a world-class private aviation experience. Outside of Ventura, Nik writes and performs music, podcasts, snowboards, bikes, and talks big ideas with anyone he can.
