New MD at ACS
21 / 01 / 2014
GLOBAL aircraft charter provider Air Charter Service (ACS) has appointed Ruan Courtney as its new managing director.
He replaces long-standing MD, Tony Bauckham, who will remain with the company for a further year – providing counsel and continuity as joint managing director – to aid Courtney’s transition.
“There comes a time when it is pertinent to hand over the reins to one’s successor. ACS is at an exciting time in its global development to which I will continue to contribute,” says Bauckham.
Bauckham was previously managing director in the UK of freighter operator Volga Dnepr and, earlier in his air cargo career, was executive vice-president of US-based Evergreen International Airlines.
Chris Leach, ACS’s chairman and founder comments: “I would like to sincerely thank Tony for his contribution and continued commitment to ACS. There is no doubt in my mind that we would not be the globally successful company we are today without his hard work and I’m honoured to have been able to work so successfully with such a close friend.”
