CTP Aviation is managed and staffed by a world-class team of aviation experts:
Reid Dennis, Mr. Dennis is Chairman of CTP Aviation, a company he founded in 2000. The advent of CTP stemmed from his avid interest in aviation and over 9000 hours in a series of aircraft, from single engine piston to twin-engine jets. He is responsible for the level of safety and service excellence fostered by the company, as well as the exacting execution of detail.
Mr. Dennis also founded Institutional Venture Partners (“IVP”), and has been an active individual and corporate venture capital investor for over five decades. He was personally involved with early-stage investments in American Microsystems, Ampex, California Microwave, Coherent Radiation and Measurex. As a corporate executive, Mr. Dennis was responsible for the successful entry of Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company, and then the American Express Company, into the venture capital field. After 21 years with the two companies, Mr. Dennis resigned from American Express to form IVA in 1974 and, subsequently, IVP in 1980.
Mr. Dennis is a past Chairman and President of the National Venture Capital Association (“NVCA”) and a past President of the Western Association of Venture Capitalists.
