Graham Stephenson, ExecuJet Aviation Group’s Head of Fixed Base Operations, is retiring on 31 August 2009 after an aviation career spanning more than half a century – 21 years in commercial and 23 years in business aviation.

Niall Olver, ExecuJet CEO, spoke about Graham’s work in leading ExecuJet’s FBO activity over the past three years, including his role at the company’s flagship FBO in Zurich. “Graham has been a truly valuable member of the team at ExecuJet and we are sad to see him go. We wish him all the very best for the future and trust that he takes away some wonderful memories of his time with ExecuJet.”

Nicole Gut, who has worked with Graham for the past three years and is currently FBO Manager at Zurich Airport, took over part of Graham’s role as Director European FBOs, on 1 August 2009.

Graham’s career started in 1958 with a three-year commercial apprenticeship with British European Airways before working in various station manager roles with BEA, BOAC and British Airways for a total of 21 years.

 Graham was working as traffic manager USSR when he met his future wife Ludmila, one of the airline’s airport staff, whom he married in 1978.

 After a short spell as director development at Luton Airport, Graham moved to the business aviation industry as Vice President and COO of Jet Aviation Saudi Arabia before becoming Project Manager at the Jet Centre at London City Airport.

 Darren Grover, Ramp Services Director at London City Airport said, “I have the utmost respect for Graham – a true professional. It was a pleasure to have worked with him and our industry will miss him. He is simply one of the best.”

In 2006 Graham relocated to Switzerland to become Zurich FBO Manager for the ExecuJet Aviation Group. His role within the company quickly grew and Graham was soon appointed Group FBO Director to formulate a united FBO network worldwide. During the next 3 years Graham oversaw the development and redesign of ExecuJet Europe’s Berlin FBO and launched ExecuJet’s new FBO in Kuala Lumpur in joint venture with Hawker Pacific.
