Vertis Aviation appoints Julian Burrell to run new London-based charter brokerage.

Monday 8th October 2012

Swiss-based Vertis Aviation, part of the independently owned aviation company 28 East Group, announced today it has appointed Julian Burrell as Managing Director of its new London business which is due to launch in December 2012.

Located in one of the UK capital's most exclusive areas, Vertis Aviation UK Limited will be completely autonomous and run separately from the Zug-headquartered Vertis business. In the newly created role Julian will be responsible for managing the charter brokerage service which will build on the reputation for excellence that Vertis has generated since its arrival onto the business aviation scene just two years ago.

With an aviation career spanning almost two decades, Julian brings extensive charter brokerage experience to the role having worked at Board level for a number of years with successful international charter broker The Charter Company. Julian studied for a Master's degree in Air Transport Management at the UK's prestigious Cranfield University before embarking on a career in the sector.

Erica Da Veiga, Vertis Aviation partner commented: "Julian's appointment as Managing Director of the new UK office demonstrates our continued commitment to adding real value to our business proposition. We understand that Vertis UK Ltd's charter clients need to have an independent point of contact to ensure they can access business jets most suitable for their client's mission. Charter brokers contacting Vertis Aviation in Zug for quotes on the fleet need to be assured of absolute discretion which is one of the reasons we have decided to take this move in setting up an independent charter brokerage"

Burrell commented: "This is an exciting opportunity for Vertis and my remit to manage an independent, dedicated brokerage division enables us to provide an even greater breadth of offering to our direct clients."

Based in Zug, Switzerland, sister company Vertis Aviation will continue to focus on the operations side of the business which sees the company forming marketing alliances with preferred suppliers and leading aircraft operators to create a premiere fleet of aircraft that can be offered for private and corporate charter. The current Vertis "fleet" (clarify this) includes a Bombardier Learjet 60, Dassault Falcon 7X, a Global Express, a Global XRS and an Airbus Corporate Jet.
