We have been looking to expand into the Private Jet sector for many years and have been looking for the right person to lead the expansion. Tim Barber is the perfect person to lead this new operation as he brings a wealth of experience and far reaching contacts, so we are looking forward to welcoming him to the team.’
Tim Barber, Senior Vice President – Private Jets said: ‘This is a phenomenal opportunity for me. To be part of a respected and long standing remarketing organisation such as Cabot Aviation, that is in turn part of a leading aviation services group, offers phenomenal scope to deliver the very best services to clients across the globe.‘
