Before joining Amerijet in 2020 as chief executive, Strauss held leadership roles in global sales and operations at Air Canada, Hawaiian, Delta and Northwest Airlines. Strauss began his career with Emery Worldwide in 1987 where he began as a cargo handler and worked his way to vice president of transportation and logistics.
