Chapman Freeborn (part of the Avia Solutions Group) have appointed Maxim Tsarev as Director General, Russia to lead the business in this new territory.

Eric Erbacher, Chapman Freeborn CEO said: “Russia is a fast-developing market and is economically growing. Traditionally the main industries have been oil and gas, mining and machine manufacturing. We see aircraft building, aerospace production and tech as growing industries, as well as automotive and transport.

"The move to open an office in Moscow is part of our long-term growth and expansion plans. Having Chapman Freeborn positioned in Moscow will allow us to far better work strategically with freight forwarders and support these growing markets with our product offering.”

Maxim Tsarev joins the business following 10 years at DSV Global Transport and Logistics, where he progressed to the position of DSV Air & Sea Russia Deputy, Managing Director.

Maxim Tsarev commented: “I have always found the air freight and aviation part of transport and logistics the most exciting and interesting. It is fast-paced and dynamic and you can see instant results from air transport. When the opportunity arose for me to join Chapman Freeborn, I jumped at it – to be involved from the start, with the new office opening here in Moscow and the chance to develop and lead the strategy for the Russian market is an exciting challenge.”

Chapman Freeborn Russia will focus on three key product areas: Cargo, Passenger and Private Jets and OBC (On Board Courier).

“The OBC (On Board Courier) product offering I think will be the most interesting”, Maxim said, “This is new to the Russian market and something that Chapman Freeborn Russia can offer as a stand-alone product.”  

“There is huge potential for us here and to have the backing of Avia Solutions Group and the fleet of aircraft from across the group to call upon only enhances our offering.”  

Maxim is leading a newly recruited team that he has put in place: Andrius Butkus, OBC Director, Roman Vorobyev, PAX Director and Vladislav Volzhanin, Cargo Director.

“Chapman Freeborn and Avia Solution Group have been very welcoming to myself and the new team, it is important for me to work with good people – here I have found perfect people, a big family with many opportunities ahead.”

Eric Erbacher, Chapman Freeborn CEO commented: “I wish Maxim and his team every success with this new venture for Chapman Freeborn, I have every faith that his experience and knowledge of the market will benefit the business and allow us to expand and meet our growth targets.”
