Being a young professional can be difficult, for Sergey Petrossov he is a young professional who founded and now runs a billion-dollar business. Sergey Petrossov is the founder and CEO of JetSmarter, a jet chartering company that allows its members to access chartered flights, to make up their own chartered flights, and to access discounted flights around the world.
JetSmarter started as a small, less than 50 employee business and it has grown into a company with over 250 employees and offices in some of the world’s largest cities like London and Dubai. Sergey has not let his success go to his head, however. He started as a young boy after his family moved to the United States when he was four years old. Though they started in California, his family eventually moved to South Florida where his business is now based.
Sergey Petrossov went to the University of Florida and studied business before he began working toward starting businesses. He was part of a startup that created software for online customer service as well as being part of a distance learning company that helped create cloud solutions for schools teaching distance education. The JetSmarter founder worked to make sure that his approach to the private jet industry was something special and something truly different from those options that are now currently working on the market.
Petrossov wants his company to be a social one, allowing users to work with one another to find the options that work best for them. Customers are able to charter flights together, take private flights, and to take part in a range of other services as well like jet shuttles as well. His vision is set to change again however as he is working to create what he calls, predictive hospitality, where the needs of the customer can be determined before they even ask.
