And Barry Nassberg becomes group chief commercial officer, and will be responsible for leading and coordinating WFS’ network commercial activities, while Justin Jaques, formerly VP Asia & Middle East, will become SVP group commercial to focus on global key accounts and major tenders and Catherine Thomas has been named as general counsel & head of legal.

WFS chief executive officer, Craig Smyth says: “We have clear strategic goals for the future of WFS and the leadership team we are building will drive this next phase of our expansion.

“In putting this team together, we are combining the existing knowledge and extensive expertise already in the company with new blood as we develop our world class suite of aviation services for our customers through our one global network.”
