Provides private charter jet transportation.
Aeronux is a charter-flight broker headquartered at the Cobb International Airport in Kennesaw, Georgia. Private plane operators list their aircraft on Aeronux's online platform, paying the company a 20 percent cut of the fare for each flight they book. Aeronux also licenses its flight-booking platform to charter-jet companies. Kambiz Khadem, an Iranian immigrant who also works at tech firm Perficient, co-founded the company in 2012. (He declined to name the company’s two other co-founders or any of Aeronux’s customers.) In 2018, Aeronux applied to the Federal Aviation Administration to become a licensed charter-plane operator.
Provides trade-up guidance and purchase of Apple hardware to help organizations maximize their technology assets.
Headquartered in Milton, Wisconsin, Diamond Assets buys outdated Apple equipment from schools and businesses, refurbishes it, and then sells it through various distributors in the U.S. It also helps its clients maximize the buy-back value from future purchases. CEO Mike McKenna says he came up with the idea of an electronic trade-up company as an account executive at Apple. This year, it lands at No. 7 on the Inc. 5000, with $43 million in 2017 revenue, up from $217,406 in 2014. The four-year-old company currently employs about 60 people.
