New freight director for Air Partner
04 / 05 / 2016
Aviation services group Air Partner has appointed Mike Hill as director of freight for the group.
He joined the company in 2007 when he set up Air Partner’s freight office in Germany from scratch and, in 2014, was promoted to regional freight director – Europe.
He will continue to be based at the German office and will report directly to head of products, Richard Smith, who previously held the role.
Prior to joining Air Partner, Hill worked for the cargo charter airline African International as a commercial manager for seven years and has held management roles in airport handling and travel companies.
Hill said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time building up Air Partner’s European freight presence and am delighted to now be expanding my role across the group.”
He added that Richard Smith and the team “have built up an enviable global freight business, leaving me well placed to capitalise on opportunities within the industry".
Richard Smith commented: “Mike has consistently achieved great results, as evidenced by the growth of the German office, and I have no doubt he will continue to do so as Air Partner further develops its freight offering.”
