Tristan CrawfordOriens Advisors has expanded its core client offering
with the addition of a new associate. Tristan Crawford will join the Oriens
network with immediate effect and will work on a consultancy basis reporting to
chief executive officer Edwin Brenninkmeyer. His main brief is to support
Oriens growing operations requirements as the company consolidates its position
and reaches new levels of success with an increased variety of aviation
businesses entering its portfolio.

qualified PPL pilot of ten years, Tristan was formerly divisional operations
manager with QinetiQ where he was responsible for applying Lean and value
stream analysis to technical consulting services.

At Oriens his experience will be used to implement
management systems that will maximise business leads, improve day to day

definition and development of aerospace technology programmes for a variety of
clients.  Tristan is also expected to facilitate client innovation

Tristan commented: “With Oriens broad spectrum vision
for the entry level jet market the role will enable me to work with a wide
range of aviation sectors, yet use my existing project management experience to
full affect both internally at Oriens and for the company’s clients.”

Michael Ricks chief operations officer of Oriens said: “As the business
has developed we have diversified our client roster and recognise the need to
bring other skill sets to the consultancy offering. We aim to provide excellent
knowledge to our clients and are developing an expanding group of associates
that we can call on as we undertake specialised projects.”  Along with its
affiliation with Gates Aviation, and InterFlightGlobal, Oriens plans to bring
further associates to its network over the next twelve months.
