New team to chair BBGA
The British business general aviation association (BBGA) has elected Aoife O’Sullivan, partner and co-founder of the Air Law Firm, as its new chair and Alex Durand, CEO of aircraft charter and management company SaxonAir as vice chair, a new role, effective immediately.
O’Sullivan takes over from Marwan Khalek, who has held the position for eight years. His company Gama Aviation has been closely involved with BBGA and its predecessor Gamta since Gama’s start in 1983. Khalek announced his decision to step down at the AGM at Luton Hoo (UK) last month, highlighting that it was time for a successor.
Thanking Khalek for his work over the years, Marc Bailey, BBGA’s CEO, welcomed the new leadership. “With both appointments we have a strong duo with complementary talents to take our association forward,” he said. (mw)
