Simon is our new Non-Executive Chairman

Jet  Aire  are delighted to announce that we have appointed Simon Lawton to the board as Non-Executive Chairman.

Jet Aire’s board has been working with Simon since 2014 on various ad hoc projects. In the past six months, he has been closely working with the directors and senior management team to lay the foundations for the next phase of the company’s growth in providing professional drainage solutions to various sectors, including construction and house-building. Simon has an extensive track record as a finance director in rapidly growing entrepreneurial businesses, notably Tribal Group Plc which he helped to grow from a start-up to a £250m+ (sales) business over a 10-year period. He was also a founder trustee of the Tribal Group Foundation - funding health and education projects in Africa, India and Nepal - and spent two years in Sub-Sahara Africa working on various investment projects, including a 5-star island tourist resort in the Indian Ocean off Mozambique.

In 2013, Simon helped to co-launch a new start-up support service business, Benula Capital Limited, focusing on the recruitment and HR market. Benula currently holds equity stakes in several companies (UK and International) to help them execute an accelerated growth strategy by providing strategic, financial and development advice and coaching to talented owner managers.

 Jet Aire Managing Director, Charlie Kirk, said: “I am delighted that Simon has agreed to accept the role of non-executive chairman. His advice will be invaluable to us as we continue to drive the business forward. Jet Aire continues to enjoy sustained and consistent growth - since 2014 the business has doubled in size, sales and profitability. The company has ambitious growth plans over the next three to five years. We continue to build on solid foundations and have an excellent management team in place.”
