Gulfstream has appointed Leda Chong as Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific.

In her new position, Leda is responsible for business development, strategic planning and government relations within the Asia Pacific region for both Gulfstream and the Aerospace business group of General Dynamics, Gulfstreams parent company.

During Ledas tenure, Gulfstreams Asia Pacific presence has increased dramatically, and weve significantly enhanced our support of cooperative programs focused on the continued development of business aviation, said Gulfstream President, Larry Flynn. She has worked closely with customers, partners and government representatives to develop business aviation initiatives. Her support of aviation programs, such as the U.S.-China Aviation Cooperation Program, helped to showcase the major economic and social benefits of business aviation, implement key regulatory initiatives and design a road map for general aviation growth. This appointment will further strengthen our relationships with all of these key stakeholders.

Leda joined General Dynamics in 2007 as a director of government relations and was appointed staff vice president of government relations in 2009. In that role, she coordinated advocacy efforts on behalf of business units supporting customers in federal, civil and intelligence communities. Most recently, Leda served as the head of the Asia Pacific region for the General Dynamics Aerospace business group.

Prior to joining General Dynamics, Leda served in the U.S. Navy, retiring in the rank of commander. She is a native of Hong Kong and fluent in Chinese. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of California, San Diego, with degrees in applied mathematics and French literature.

Leda reports to Larry Flynn, and is based in Beijing.
