PENTA: 20 Minutes With: Aviation Entrepreneur Kenn Ricci
Kenn Ricci is a longtime aviation executive, principal of privately held Directional Aviation Capital, a company with $2.5 billion in annual revenue that operates a family of private jet companies, including Flexjet, Flight Options, Sentient Jet, Skyjet, Nextant and Constant Aviation. Late last year, Ricci and his wife, Pamela, donated $100 million to his alma mater, from which he graduated from in 1978. The gift was given unrestricted, meaning the university can spend it however they see fit. We caught up with Mr. Ricci to discuss this unique giving structure, his career in aviation, and more.
