Julian BurrellSwiss-based Vertis Aviation announced that it has appointed Julian Burrell as managing director of its new London business which is due to launch in December 2012. Vertis Aviation UK Limited will be completely autonomous and run separately from the Zug-headquartered Vertis business.

With an aviation career spanning almost two decades, Burrell brings extensive charter brokerage experience to the role having worked at Board level for a number of years with successful international charter broker The Charter Company. Julian studied for a master’s degree in Air Transport Management at Cranfield University before embarking on a career in the sector.

Erica Da Veiga, Vertis Aviation partner commented “Julian’s appointment as Managing Director of the new UK office demonstrates our continued commitment to adding real value to our business proposition. We understand that Vertis UK Ltd’s charter clients need to have an independent point of contact to ensure they can access business jets most suitable for their client’s mission.”

De Veiga continued “Charter brokers contacting Vertis Aviation in Zug for quotes on the fleet need to be assured of absolute discretion which is one of the reasons we have decided to take this move in setting up an independent charter brokerage.”

Burrell commented “This is an exciting opportunity for Vertis and my remit to manage an independent, dedicated brokerage division enables us to provide an even greater breadth of offering to our direct clients.”
