Bargate Murray appoints new head of aviation


Bargate Murray has kicked off the new year by promoting Robert Calleja to head of aviation.

Effective from Monday this week, Calleja will largely focus on business jet and superyacht transactions providing advice on financings, sales and purchase, charters and operating leases. 

Quentin Bargate founder and CEO said: “Robert has made an excellent impression on our clients and contacts since joining the firm and is proving to be a great addition to our thriving luxury asset practice. His appointment as head of aviation is testament to the hard work he has put in since joining the firm late in 2023. 

“I wish him and his department all the best in this exciting new chapter for both Robert and the firm,” Bargate added.

Calleja added: “I am delighted to be appointed head of aviation, drawing on my experience in private and business aviation, to propel the aviation department to even greater success. I am grateful for the support and commitment that Quentin Bargate has shown me to boost the firm’s aviation offering and to complement its stellar expertise in superyachts and luxury assets. It’s an excellent firm to be part of and I look forward to the challenges that lie ahead.”
