ACS makes board appointments

Read this story in our FlipViewer digital magazine.

Air Charter Service has appointed Katie Ivie, the company's human resources director, to its board of directors.
Ivie has held a number of human resources management roles over the past 20 years, including seven years as HR director at management consulting company Kelly Services. Prior to this, she spent almost four and half years as head of HR at Adecco, which followed on from holding the same position for four years at one of their subsidiaries. Ivie joined ACS just over 18 months ago in the role of HR director.
Chairman Chris Leach says: “We are delighted to welcome Katie to the board. Over the past year and a half ACS has continued to expand across the globe, with several offices opening since she joined. We recently reached 500 employees; we have always felt that we are a people business and over the past 18 months we have expanded our recruitment team. Katie has played a key role in helping to recruit and retain the best talent that we have, through effective training and reward programmes. In addition to this, she has introduced software efficiencies to our HR process, including online learning management systems, which aim to create a global standard of knowledge, processes and, above all, the same service quality around the world.”

The company has also appointed industry veteran and former CEO Tony Bauckham as Brexit consultant. ACS CEO Justin Bowman comments: “As Brexit consultant, Tony has been reporting directly to the ACS group board and will be working with the business to ensure our internal systems are ready in the event of a no-deal Brexit. He will be working with all our division heads, ensuring that they know the implications that various scenarios could have on different airlines and other suppliers and working towards potential solutions for each one. Tony will also be analysing the most recent official advice and all the latest developments in order to assess the potential impact on ACS and aviation in general. We believe the knowledge that he will bring to the table will be of huge benefit to our customers.”
He continues: “Tony is hugely experienced in the charter world and has been managing director of Volga-Dnepr UK and CEO of Evergreen Airlines. He has all the relevant knowledge on ACS's processes, having been our CEO between 2007 and 2013, and we are delighted to be welcoming him back.”
