Air Partner, a global leading full-service logistics provider, has announced the appointment of Oliver Giesen as Head of OBC - Global.

Oliver’s appointment signifies Air Partner’s investment in the growth of OBC delivery as part of the company’s commitment to enhance its time-critical services. With a vast global footprint and extended network of experts, Air Partner is uniquely positioned to provide first-class services, tailored to meet the diverse needs of clients worldwide.

Oliver will be based in his home country of Germany, which is a prominent manufacturing hub in Europe, ideally located for US- and Asia-bound delivery services. 

Reporting to Pierre Van Der Stichele, VP of Global Charter, Oliver will be responsible for identifying opportunities to drive the growth of Air Partner’s OBC Division, focusing on aerospace, automotive, fashion and pharmaceutical industries.

Pierre Van Der Stichele, VP of Global Charter, said: “There are huge untapped opportunities for OBC services to fulfil, from high net-worth individuals and fashion houses to financial institutions and car manufacturers. Door-to-door OBC services are of growing importance to those for whom safe and urgent delivery, by hand, of items is critical, such as sensitive documents, parts for cars to meet manufacturing deadlines, and last-minute additions to the catwalk at global fashion shows

“Oliver brings a wealth of industry experience to Air Partner with an extensive background spanning logistics, supply chain visibility and operations. With over a decade’s experience in roles at NEO Air Charter GmbH and Chapman Freeborn Airchartering, Oliver refined his expertise in logistics operations and business development. After delving into supply chain visibility for over two years, Oliver now returns to logistics, leading Air Partner's OBC division.”
