My Sky is celebrating again, after winning another two awards for its business aviation financial control platform.
The Swiss company has been named Company of the Year, and its CEO and founder Kirill Kim Gamechanger of the Year, by UK-based business magazine Acquisition Finance Magazine (ACQ5).
This follows gold and silver Stevie awards earlier this year (for Startup of the Year – Business Services Industries and Tech Startup of the Year respectively) and a Sapphire Pegasus Business Aviation Award for Innovation last year.
The magazine has been running the ACQ5 Global Awards for 12 years. They sim to reward companies and people that can “deliver services and skills to meet clients’ needs and adapt to market and regulatory conditions” and that may not be global in scale but are “truly world class” in how they are run and the services they provide.
My Sky (previously known as My Jet) was launched in August 2015, by two private banking and aviation entrepreneurs. It now has 80 employees, including in-house auditors, analysts and IT specialists, and provides a digital financial control and benchmarking tool to help business aircraft owners get the most out of the time and money they spend on their aircraft.
The company says it has reached 1.8% of the European business aviation market, with 60 aircraft and almost EUR 2 billion under financial management.
Kim said: “Our team and me personally are very honoured and excited by this prestigious recognition at the international level. This is a very important benchmark in the independent expert assessment of our company and our business model.
“The Gamechanger of the Year and the Company of the Year are both very honourable and demanding titles, and we will make sure we keep pace to continue the revolution we have started in the business aviation industry for the benefit of our clients and partners.”
Jake Robson, group editor of The ACQ5, said: “Experts with intimate knowledge and expertise in the corporate, cultural, financial and legal arenas are redefining our industry. The 2017 ACQ5 Global Award winners represent the best of breed in all industry sectors and have earned these honours by standing out in a group of very impressive finalists.”
