October 20 - In Miami, aircraft charter broker Air Charter Service (ACS) has opened its fifth North American office adding to the existing offices in Los Angeles, Houston, New York and Toronto.

Richard Thompson, president of ACS North America, explained the need for the new operation: "We have a really strong customer base in Florida and decided that now was the right time to open an office in closer proximity to some of those clients."

Heading up the office will be Joel Fenn, who has been working in the company's Hong Kong operation for the past two and a half years. Fenn started his ACS career over ten years ago in the company's London headquarters, where he worked his way up to the position of director, before taking on the same role in the Hong Kong operation. Fenn will be joined by Brian Rodriguez from the company's New York office.
