Skyworld Aviation is undergoing a re-organisation following Peter Greensmith’s recent decision to step back from “day to day” operations of the company and play more of a project management role. Peter who joined Skyworld Aviation from Saab Aircraft Leasing back in 2001 has been an essential part of Skyworld’s success during the last 17 years. Stepping back to run projects or specific campaigns means that Peter will remain active in the Skyworld business as well as establishing his own consultancy company, Papa Golf Aviation.
Juliet Hewitt is stepping up to the role of Marketing Director and will become significantly more involved in the day to day running of the company.
