This Summer we had the opportunity to welcome Joe Savage to the team, Joe is the son of our Sales Director Matthew, and has literally grown up hearing about the airline business.
Matthew said “Joe has always been keen to know more about my work as he has been hearing my stories of arranging aircraft charters around the world since he was a small boy! He’s currently studying for a Business Logistics & Transport Management degree at the University of Greenwich and his Summer break coincided nicely with our need to bring someone in to supplement our marketing and telesales activity.”
Joe jumped at the chance to gain some first hand work experience in a dynamic environment, and has been able to secure some valuable new contacts for us, and generated several new enquiries for the business. Its been a great learning experience for him, and we wish him well on the next two years of hard study!
