“The budge has to be justifiable”

Gentlemen, in the vast knowledge of pilots on here, I can get feedback I know I can believe. Here is my predicament:
A gentleman and myself had a meeting the other day in his office. He called me in because he needed help with the aviation industry. This gentleman wants to purchase his first airplane. He asked me to help him narrow down the options. I myself am troubled because there are a lot of options. Obviously the best way to go about this is, you get the airplane that suits the mission. Not under kill or overkill.

Here is the mission: enough room for 5 to 6 people to go nonstop from Delaware to Chicago, or from Delaware to Florida. Will be doing two trips a month during spring and summer to Chicago minimum. Will be doing for trips a month during the fall and winter to Chicago at a minimum. When asked about a budget, the reply was: "no budget as long as it is justifiable by business."
This gentleman has been using a fellow friend of his and his piper malibu jetprop to get him around the Eastern region for roughly $600 per hour charge.
I have narrowed down my search between the following: Pilatus PC12, TBM700 or 850, Cessna Conquest, Piper Cheyenne, King air 90, Piper Meridian. My biggest concern is the maintenance cost and operating cost. One engine versus two engines etc.

If anyone can shed some more light to help me and the other gentleman out to complete the mission, that would be great. Thank you
