“I have always found the air freight and aviation part of transport and logistics the most exciting and interesting. It is fast-paced and dynamic, and you can see instant results from air transport. When the opportunity arose for me to join Chapman Freeborn, I jumped at it – to be involved from the start, with the new office opening here in Moscow, and the chance to develop and lead the strategy for the Russian market is an exciting challenge,” says Maxim Tsarev, director general, Russia.
Chapman Freeborn Russia will focus on three key product areas: cargo, passenger and private jets and OBC (on board courier).
“The OBC (on board courier) product offering I think will be the most interesting,” Tsarev says. “This is new to the Russian market and something that Chapman Freeborn Russia can offer as a stand-alone product.”
“There is huge potential for us here, and to have the backing of Avia Solutions Group and the fleet of aircraft from across the group to call upon only enhances our offering.”
Tsarev is leading a newly recruited team that he has put in place: Andrius Butkus, OBC director, Roman Vorobyev, PAX director and Vladislav Volzhanin, cargo director.
“Chapman Freeborn and Avia Solution Group have been very welcoming to myself and the new team, it is important for me to work with good people – here I have found perfect people, a big family with many opportunities ahead.”
Eric Erbacher, Chapman Freeborn CEO comments: “I wish Maxim and his team every success with this new venture for Chapman Freeborn, I have every faith that his experience and knowledge of the market will benefit the business and allow us to expand and meet our growth targets.”
