Role changes at Magi

Posted by

Aviation finance specialist and aircraft manager Magi Aviation Capital (Magi) formally announces some role changes and re-designations within its business.

Jason Bewley, who joined Magi in 2015 as Regional Director for airlines and financiers in the Asia Pacific region, has become Executive Vice President & Head of Marketing. He will step up to take leadership of global airline origination and aircraft remarketing, while maintaining his key role in Magi’s active portfolio management.

John Sharman, a co-founder, formerly Chairman and most recently non-executive director of Magi, has retired from the Magi board. John will retain his non-executive chairmanship of Magi’s Korean joint venture aircraft management business MPAM and will also assume the title of Emeritus Advisor to the Magi group.

Peter Vardigans, Executive Chairman of Magi, commented: “Jason has been with Magi since an early stage of its development and we are extremely pleased that, in this newly-designated role, we can continue to benefit from his focused approach to deal origination and his extensive network of industry relationships. This new position reflects both Jason’s achievements to date within Magi and the continued growth of the company.”

Peter also commented: “We are especially grateful for the work and insight that John, as one of its co-founders, has provided since Magi’s inception. John’s early vision is a key reason why Magi is a leading player in the Korean and global aircraft investor market, and we are very pleased John will retain his links with the group through MPAM and in an advisory capacity.”
