Born in London, George spent his formative years in Bahrain, before heading further afield to complete his education and undertake work experience across the UK and the USA. Early roles in logistics with DHL in the UK and DHL USPS in Bahrain, sowed the seeds for a career path and a passion for the aviation & logistics industry.
This path eventually culminated in a return to Bahrain in 2010 to assume responsibility for coordinating ground operations at Chisholm Enterprises and the opportunity to commence an intensive management development programme. In 2014, George was promoted to General Manager and then quickly moved to CEO and Director of Chisholm Enterprises and Executive Director of the company’s subsidiary company, Texel Air WLL.
Both Chisholm Enterprises and Texel Air WLL have built a reputation as industry leading companies with a unique business offering for their customers evidenced by their selection as a launch customer for PEMCO’s FlexCombi™ and multiple other aircraft conversions over the past 10 years. George has been heavily involved with these projects from concept to delivery including modifications, sourcing of aircraft and purchase of donor aircraft and has become adept at problem solving and providing innovative solutions to ensure project success.
With proven experience in airline startups and operations, George has an extensive knowledge of the aviation & logistics industry within the Kingdom of Bahrain and is a strong advocate for its promotion as a premier destination for both International Airport and Aircraft Maintenance facilities. However, this knowledge is not limited to Bahrain and with clients and contacts spread around the world, George operates on a truly global level.
