IBA, the UK aviation consultancy, has appointed three new staff members to its consultancy team.

The three new analysts, Carmen Wong, Huda Syed and Kim Seward bring with them considerable and varied backgrounds of experience. This complements the existing team, which already has comprehensive aircraft, engine, operational, technical and financial knowledge.

Carmen Wong, who holds a BSc in Aviation Engineering with Pilot Studies from Brunel, also has a Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL) and recently worked as a contracting engineer at 3M UK Plc.

Huda Syed joins IBA with a BSc in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Glasgow and a Master’s in Finance from Strathclyde. Huda recently worked as a researcher at a hedge fund management company.

Kim Seward comes from a family with a strong aviation tradition, holding a BSc in Biomedical Sciences from Durham. Kim’s enthusiasm for aviation developed further while at University, where she was a vital part of the Northumbrian university’s Air Squadron.

“This is an exciting time for IBA, we received over 200 hundred applications for these roles and so were able to handpick the three most talented and passionate individuals to join our team. Collectively bringing knowledge of modelling, finance, materials, engineering and operations, I am confident that we will feel their positive impact on the team quickly.” Comments Stuart Hatcher, IBA’s head of valuations and risk.
