Marcela White, General Manager
Marcela White has been in the aircraft charter business for 30 years. Mr. Thomas A. Vaughn, a prominent attorney in Houston who loved aviation, owned Tavaero Jet Charter. Fortunately for Marcela and co-owner Renato Venturini, his kids did not share in that passion. Upon his demise Marcela and her husband ,Renato Venturini, purchased the company in 1999. At that time they had two Learjets. 17 years later, Tavaero Jet Charter now boasts 12 aircraft in its fleet. The aircraft size range from a capacity of 4 to 12 passengers. The fleet includes Challengers, Hawkers, Westwinds and Citation jets. Based at Houston’s Hobby Airport, Tavaero Jet Charter is today considered one of the biggest and more respected charter companies in Houston, boasting clientele ranging from prominent business leaders to politicians, and famous Hollywood personalities.
As the General Manager, Marcela’s fierce competitiveness, knowledge of the industry as a private pilot, extensive studies in management, her BA from the University of Houston in finance and meticulous attention to safety and customer service provide her with the foundation and skillset necessary to manage 30 pilots, which she admits is the most challenging part of her job. The unique demands of this industry and her ability to instantly transition from General Manager to jump in the trenches to resolve crises at a moment’s notice are proficiencies that can be applied to any industry. Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Adaptability…she’s immersed in that world in her management of Tavaero Jet Charter. Marcela is an active volunteer in various aviation organizations and lives in Friendswood, Texas with her husband, Renato. They have two children in college and look forward to the day when they have more time to travel the United States in their version of an RV, their beloved 4-seater Cessna 182.
