New organisation announced at Q8Aviation

A reorganisation of the senior management team has been announced by Q8Aviation.

Andrew Westmoreland, Managing Director Q8Aviation, says: “Over the past few months we’ve been reviewing our long-term business strategy and considering the best way of organising our management team to implement that strategy. I am confident that the new team will place us in a strong position to move the company forward.”

The changes, effective 1st April 2010, are as follows:

Fadel al Faraj takes on the new role of Supply and Operations Director, responsible for supply, logistics and operations, in addition to business development.

Richard Crowe, formerly Operations Director, moves to the new role of Technical Director, incorporating technical, SSHE (safety, security, health and the environment), HR and IT responsibilities.

Toby Simmons moves from Operations to become Sales and Marketing Manager.

Nick Nigel takes on the key new strategic role of Market Development Manager, charged with promoting Aviation Services, technical support, sales commission representation and insurances, as well as the development of General Aviation sales.

Three new appointments have been made, reporting directly to the Supply and Operations Director. John Buxton is appointed Operations Manager, supported by Duncan Storey as Regional Operations Manager. Julian Amesbury takes on the role of Business Development Manager. Mark Welch becomes Supply and Logistics Manager, responsible for the Supply Operations team in Woking and Hong Kong.

In other development moves, James Stride becomes an Account Manager in the Sales and Marketing team and Robert Finch becomes SSHE Manager in the Technical team.

Andrew Westmoreland concludes: “By working closely together as people move to new roles, we can assure our customers that it is very much business as usual. Looking at our activities with a fresh eye will, I believe, enable us to provide an even sharper service in future.”
