Charter broker Chapman Freeborn has appointed James Edwards to the new role of general manager – UK.

Edwards has worked with companies such as Airways Aviation Ltd, British Airways and American Airlines in a variety of sectors, including commercial flight training, airline revenue growth and MRO (maintenance, repairs, and overhaul).

Most recently he was based at London Stansted Airport at Inflite The Jet Centre Ltd.

The new role has been created to ensure the business is prepared for future expansion, Chapman Freeborn said.

Reto Hunziker, president – Europe, said: “The UK teams and people are very important for the success of the organisation and therefore need dedicated leadership and management.

“James will be key to supporting the growth plans for the UK across all products and verticals, as well as managing the teams and ensuring the right structure is in place. We are very happy to have him on board.”

Edwards added: “Whilst increasing our revenue year-on-year will always be a target, it is equally important to focus on recruitment and retainment.

“From my first day at Chapman Freeborn it became clear that I am working with the best talent in the industry, and that everyone has the shared goal of maintaining the company’s excellent reputation.

“I look forward to helping increase the company’s success further, and ensuring that we continue to attract the highest calibre of aviation professionals.”
