Meet René

THIS IS HER JOURNEY

Author, Speaker and Podcast Host, René Banglesdorf, is the Co-Founder & CEO of Charlie Bravo Aviation, an Austin, Texas-based company that buys, sells and leases corporate aircraft worldwide. She applies her background in business journalism and marketing from several industries to work with government entities, non-profits, corporations (both large and small) and private individuals, closing deals in more than 40 countries ranging from $500K to $30M+.
