Air Partner names non-executive chairman

February 9 - Air Partner has appointed Richard Everitt, currently senior independent director of the company, to succeed Aubrey Adams as non-executive chairman of Air Partner plc, with immediate effect.

Mark Briffa, CEO of Air Partner, commented: "We are very fortunate to have had the benefit of Aubrey Adams' experience and guidance over the last three and a half years. Aubrey is highly sought after as a director and we are grateful to him for bringing the group through a period of considerable change and setting Air Partner on the right track for long term success.

"The leadership of a Chairman who already has a detailed knowledge of the business will enable the Board to concentrate on its strategic goals, ensuring that the best interests of all shareholders and stakeholders are served."

Under his leadership I am confident that Air Partner will continue to respond effectively to change and will be able to extend its model of superior client service into new and growing markets."
