YFM backed ACC Aviation, acquires global aviation consultancy Aerotask and is recognised in the Sunday Times as one of the UK’s fastest growing international sales businesses
To support ACC’s ongoing expansion into Asia, Africa and the US the group has acquired the Dubai based aviation consultancy Aerotask. The acquisition will complement the existing ACC capabilities across ACMI leasing, aircraft charter and the aircraft seats aftermarket bringing additional customer and geographic diversification, whilst also adding asset management and advisory expertise.
ACC CEO, Phil Mathews, comments: “The incorporation of Aerotask as part of the ACC Aviation Group represents a significant milestone in the journeys of both organisations. Aerotask reinforces our presence within the Middle East, expanding our existing revenue lines, grow our customer base and allowing us to provide a market-leading end-to-end service offering to our global airline partners. We are also very proud to have been ranked as one of the fastest growing companies in the country – it is a fantastic achievement and a testament to the hard work of everyone at ACC and the support YFM have given the business since the management buyout in 2014.”
Aerotask MD, Rob Watts, comments “This exciting new chapter as part of the ACC Aviation Group provides a foundation upon which to accelerate the growth of our business. We look forward to working with Phil, his team and YFM as we realise the full value of joining this truly global organisation.”
