The earlier we are involved the more helpful we can be to the clients’ goal.

We work with aviation businesses and their often complex supply chains, to manage negotiations, renewals, tenders and contract management.   We can also provide insight for the suppliers themselves in their relationship activities with their aviation customers.

Our focus is on creating a sustainable supply chain where both parties are supportive of each other.

Financial Performance

In difficult economic times, we support clients with aviation or travel businesses that are not performing or where radical change is required.  We look at the business and work positively to help turnaround performance, ready the asset for a sale, support joint venture or investment discussions or facilitate difficult discussions with stakeholders where banking covenants are in jeopardy.  Difficult times require sensitivity and professionalism and a lot of lateral thinking.
