IBA Group Expands its Team in Line with Asset Management Growth

The International Bureau of Aviation (IBA Group) has announced a number of new personnel to manage the surge in demand for its expert Asset Management Services.

IBA Group’s much acclaimed Business Jet Asset Report, published in 2013, predicted the global business jet fleet would grow to 25,000 aircraft by 2020.  Because of this, IBA’s core services including asset management and consultancy, are increasingly sought after.

Chris Lennon joins from TAG Aviation, where he was Head of Airworthiness.  With over 40 years’ experience in the industry Lennon’s primary role will be the development of asset management, aircraft deliveries and technical acceptance preparations in the corporate aircraft sector.

To support Lennon and IBA Group’s rapid expansion in this market, IBA has also recruited three Technical Managers - Carl Martin, Ross Armour and Malcolm Hide. Their combined experience and expertise will complement IBA’s existing core team of commercial aviation inspectors and help develop the corporate aircraft and helicopter support services IBA already offers.

Owen Geach, IBA’s Commercial Director comments, “We are seeing a significant increase in the demand for advisory services in both the corporate and commercial aviation sectors.  Clients are seeking full-level services from consultancy, regulatory, technical, asset management and remarketing and we can offer all these services under one umbrella.  Demand for our expert business analysis is growing across China, the Middle East and Latin America with High Net Worth individuals and investors seeking independent advice and management support.”
