Aviation - 21st October 2010

October 21 2010, London – Leading European private jet company Ocean Sky is strengthening with the appointment of Gareth Cadwell as general manager of the company’s aircraft charter business.

Cadwell will oversee all areas of Ocean Sky Aircraft Charter, including expansion of the charter sales team and the fleet to meet increasing customer demand.

Cadwell has over seven years of experience in business aviation and previously led the charter division at Bookajet. He says: “I’m really looking forward to building the team here at Ocean Sky and making sure that as we grow we maintain the highest standards.

“We certainly want to increase our strength in markets where we are already well established, such as Russia and Eastern Europe, but we also want to ensure we maximise the new opportunities for us in central Europe, the UK and the Middle East. We’ll be looking for strategic partners and affiliates around the world.

“I’m confident we can increase our market share. I’m targeting 30% growth for Ocean Sky Aircraft Charter in 2011.”

Stephen Grimes, Ocean Sky’s chief executive officer, adds: “Our aircraft charter division is a hugely important part of our business, with the best charter sales team in the industry. Gareth will take our top-quality, experienced team to an even higher level.”
