Gama Group has strengthened its management team with the appointment of Sir Ralph Robins as non-executive chairman. Previously ceo and then executive chairman of Rolls-Royce plc, Robins believes that the international charter company has potential for further expansion in the future.
"As Gama heads toward its 30th anniversary, it has established a proven track record of successful expansion and sustainable growth in this challenging market segment," he says. "I am very pleased to join Marwan Khalek and the management team and provide them with support and advice as they look forward to the next 30 years of growth."
Recent expansion of services has included the exclusive provision of executive aircraft ground services at Sharjah airport, UAE, and the establishment of Gama Engineering, affording fixed and rotor wing aircraft operators a design, manufacturing, certification, maintenance, repair, overhaul and modification service at Fairoaks, UK. Gama's most recent acquisition Ronaldson Airmotive is fully EASA Part 145 certified for the provision of engine and component overhaul services.
"I am delighted that Sir Ralph is joining the board of Gama at a time of significant expansion and I am very much looking forward to working with him," says Khalek. "His unique blend of aerospace, international business, corporate governance experience and know-how will ensure that we deliver even better value to our customers, employees and investors."
