Air Partner appoints Mike Hill as director of freight


Air Partner has appointed Mike Hill as director of freight, with responsibility for freight across the entire Group.

Hill has been with the Group since 2007, when he joined to set up Air Partner’s freight office in Germany from scratch.

In 2014 he was promoted from a business development position to Regional Freight Director – Europe. Hill will remain based in Air Partner’s German office and will report directly to Richard Smith, head of products, who previously held the role.

Hill has 20 years of industry experience and prior to joining Air Partner, worked for the cargo charter airline African International as a commercial manager for seven years.

Air Partner’s full year results for the year ended 31 January 2016, which were released on Thursday 28 April, reported the Freight division delivered a 21 per cent increase in gross profit for the period, with strong growth in the Group’s German and US businesses.

Hill says: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time building up Air Partner’s European freight presence and am delighted to now be expanding my role across the Group. Richard and the team have built up an enviable global freight business, leaving me well placed to capitalise on opportunities within the industry.”

Air Partner’s head of products, Richard Smith says: “Mike has consistently achieved great results, as evidenced by the growth of the German office, and I have no doubt he will continue to do so as Air Partner further develops its freight offering.”
