Air Partner has promoted Clive Chalmers to senior vice president of group charter for the UK and the rest of the world. The move is part of a wider business strategy to enhance operations in current markets and to drive growth in new markets.

Chalmers began his career at Air Partner 25 years ago supporting brokers as a market researcher, and has worked his way up to his new role which will focus on developing Air Partner's presence in territories such as Germany, Italy and France. As well as exploring new areas for growth, his role will look at continuing to build and expand relationships in key sectors including government and defence, MICE, oil and gas, automotive, sports and entertainment.

In addition, Chalmers will be looking after the overall product strategy, attracting and retaining top talent, marketing, supply and technology. The role will see him work closely with Simon Moore, SVP group charter US, to deliver on the overall group charter strategy.

Kevin Macnaughton, managing director, charter says: "As we embark on this exciting next stage of Air Partner's journey to expand our offering across Europe, having the right leadership in place is imperative. Clive's unparalleled dedication, experience and enthusiasm for Air Partner and the industry as a whole makes him the perfect fit for this role and I'm confident in his ability to take the business to the next level."

Chalmers adds: "Working for Air Partner for over two decades has been an incredibly rewarding journey that has given me great satisfaction and growth. It is a privilege to be taking on this new role and I look forward to using the experience I've gained from across the business to navigate this new chapter and uphold our unwavering commitment to a 'customer first' approach."

Chalmers joined Air Partner in 1998 when he started out as broker support for the ACMI and leasing team. He has since held a variety of roles throughout the business including ops duty officer, senior broker, trading manager and trading director.
