He has held various positions in strategy, marketing, business development, economics and aviation statistics at Textron/Cessna, Bombardier (commercial and business aircraft), Flexjet and ICAO.

Identifying a need for enhanced insights into the state of the business aviation marketplace, Rolland Vincent Associates partnered with JETNET in 2010 to create JETNET iQ, a respected source of independent market intelligence incorporating proprietary voices-of-the-customer research and syndicated state-of-the-industry reports.

Vincent is the architect and chair of the annual JETNET iQ Summit, bringing together titans of the industry to discuss and deliberate issues and opportunities across the global business aviation industry.

In 2023, he co-launched the Research Institute for Business Aviation (RIBA), an independent think-tank focused on disruptive challenges facing the global business aviation industry. RIBA seeks to create coalitions of engaged leaders and like-minded organizations who embrace fact-based analytics and intelligence to secure a stronger, more sustainable future for the industry.

A private pilot and lifelong aviation aficionado, Vincent earned a BA and MA in economic geography and MBA in international business and marketing from McGill University.
