Well its been a fantastically busy year so far and business has been the best ever.  It makes you wonder really doesn’t it.  There’s a world recession, and yet Private Jet Charter are having their busiest year to date.  I think its a lot to do with the enthusiasm of the people we employ, their passion for the business and making sure that their ‘Client is King’.  Its important.  Everyone works hard to earn their money and when you spend it you want to make sure its with a company who are going to put your interests first. Well all this business has meant us taking on new staff.  So meet the new guys who were all at UK Head Office this week…here’s a piccy of them all together.

So, introducing Derek Damgaard our latest pin up (sorry Joshua, you’ve got some competition).  Derek is a native of Monaco and will be based in our Nice Airport office working alongside the lovely Marina Biale.  Dereks background is in sales, and for the past four years he has been working for Top Marques, the luxury Car and Yacht show held annually at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.  But not only does he know his Sunseeker from his Ferretti, he also knows his Embraer Legacy from his Challenger 850!  It is a real passion for the aviation business that has brought Derek to PJC and having joined us just over a week ago, he is already a valued member of the team with two bookings under his belt in his first week!  Derek is fluent in French, English and Danish, so brings another language to our already multi-lingual team.

Then we have Kim Hinson a lovely bubbly lady who has come to join the Charter Sales Team, and is based at our UK Head Office.  Kim has been employed in the Travel Industry for the past eight years and worked her way up to manegerial status.  During this time Kim travelled the world and spent many years in Paris, so she too can ‘Parler Francais’.  It is during her time working in the travel industry that she found her forte in personalised customer service, booking high end luxury travel for clients to exotic locations such as Bali, the Maldives and Zanzibar, and tailoring holidays to suit the clients specific needs. Kim prides herself on having built up a great repeat client base by giving exemplary service, delivered with discretion.  Sounds perfect to work with Private Jet Charters VIP client base and with 7 bookings so far this month, she is proving she does deliver.

And finally….last but not least, its welcome to our very latest addition Miss Noor Ali.  Born and raised in the Middle East, Noor has worked in events management, publishing and advertising in Doha, Qatar and more recently lectured at a media college in Amman Jordan. She holds a BFA in Visual Communications from Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts, and an MA in War Media and Society Studies (History) from the University of Kent in Canterbury (so she is not just a pretty face!)  Noor has been employed as a Marketing Co-ordinator, working alongside our Marketing team in the UK Head Office.  She will be organising and implementing advertising and internet campaigns to raise awareness of our Middle East office based in the busy hub of Dubai and promoting Private Jet Charters services throughout the Middle Eastern countries.  She speaks fluent English, Arabic and (wait for it….Tagalog) that’s a new one for us, so if you should want to book a private jet in Tagalog, Noor is the girl to talk to!
