Tuvoli Invests in Business of Flight at Embry-Riddle
Tuvoli, a leader in business aviation fintech (financial technology), is supporting the next generation of business aviation professionals through an investment in scholarships and the creation of an internship program in the David B. O’Maley College of Business at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
Greg Johnson, president and CEO of Tuvoli, and an Embry-Riddle alumnus, signed the agreement for the $50,000 endowment to support students pursuing business degrees in the David B. O’Maley College of Business. In addition to providing financial support, the new internship program will engage business students with hands-on experience in the dynamic aviation fintech sector. Greg and his wife, Elise, recently made a separate personal gift to the College of Business’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE) to fund scholarships for students studying entrepreneurship. Greg serves on the CIE Board of Advisors and is heavily involved with activities and programs around entrepreneurship.
“It is great that Tuvoli is in a position to support this program, but this is also good business,” Johnson said. “I believe that both students and industry win when they start working together at the undergraduate level. We need to foster more of this.”
“We are incredibly grateful to Tuvoli for recognizing the importance of educating the next generation of aviation business leaders,” said Shanan Gibson, dean of Embry-Riddle’s David B. O’Maley College of Business at the Daytona Beach Campus. “Greg’s commitment to our students is extraordinary — this support underscores his leadership and passion to make a difference.”
Johnson and Gibson announced the scholarship and internship program at the 2023 National Business Aviation Association’s Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition in Las Vegas.
