What makes Airswift different?
Airswift is a company that truly puts people at the centre of everything we do. This has fostered a culture of multinational collaboration and one company mentality, which is unique. Post-merger, I immediately felt welcomed by the entire team. Everyone wanted to help to ensure we were successfully onboarded.
Why are you passionate about what you do?
I enjoy working with the best in the industry, and always learning and developing my knowledge base and skillsets. Airswift offers that since it is an international business operating in every major region of the world with world-class employees.
Which Airswift value(s) do you think are particularly important and why?
They are all essential and are embedded into our operations and deliveries. As the CFO, compliance is at the top of my priorities, so safety, excellence and integrity are essential building blocks for driving compliance in an organisation. Growth is a value that speaks to what I’m passionate about – growing and developing my knowledge and skills.
