Charter company expands board of directors

Hunt&Palmer PLC, the specialist aircraft charter and travel company, is delighted to announce the appointment of three additional Directors to the company’s Board.

The move follows a trading performance for the organisation in 2009 that was notably ahead of expectations and it is seen as a significant move by the founding Directors to strengthen and enhance the Company’s senior management in order to implement their strategic plan for international growth of the business.

The new Directors are internal appointments drawn from the Company’s senior management team:

  • Neil Harvey, who heads up Hunt&Palmer’s Executive Aviation division
  • Simon Edwards, who leads the Commercial Aviation section
  • Mark Jenkinson, Company Secretary and Group Resources Manager.

Each brings considerable experience to both their individual roles and to the Board. All
appointments are effective 1st January 2010. In making the announcement Chairman of the Board, Jeremy Palmer, commented “Like many businesses, Hunt&Palmer started 2009 facing some unpalatable but necessary decisions. Following a thorough restructure of our operations to meet the demanding financial environment in which we found ourselves, we were able to finish the year well ahead of expectations. For the future, we see several opportunities in both the established and emerging markets so we are positioning the Company to maximize the natural advantage we enjoy with our highly experienced team. We are delighted that Neil, Simon and Mark have all agreed to join the Board of Directors where they will undoubtedly make a significant contribution to the future of the Company.”
