This strategic move comes as TGIS seeks to enhance its impact in the industry, leveraging Charlie's extensive experience and innovative approach.

The timing of Charlie's appointment is particularly significant as TGIS is on the cusp of receiving their CAMO (Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation) approval from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). This approval will enable TGIS to further support its clients with their Airworthiness Management and Asset Management services. Charlie's leadership is expected to play a crucial role working with the CAMO team to increase the value offered to TGIS customers.

Having served as a consultant to the company for the past year, Charlie has already demonstrated a profound understanding of the company's operations and has been instrumental in several key developments.

With a successful track record of running and growing her own business for over six years, Charlie brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in commercial management and business development and her expertise will help drive growth and innovation at TGIS Aviation.

In her new role, Charlie will work closely with co-owner Trish Gray, who will move to the role of CEO, marking a significant moment as TGIS places two women in its top leadership positions. This change reflects the company's commitment to diversity and progressive leadership in the aviation industry.

Charlie commented: "I am thrilled to take on the role of Managing Director at TGIS Aviation. This position allows me to bring my expertise to an organisation I deeply respect. The upcoming CAMO approval is a thrilling development, and I am excited to be part of this pivotal moment in the company's history. Working alongside Trish Gray, now CEO, I am confident we will lead TGIS Aviation to new heights."

Trish Gray, the new CEO, said: "Having worked with Charlie over the past year, I've seen firsthand the impact she can have. Her vision and leadership are exactly what TGIS needs as we embark on this new chapter. I look forward to leading alongside her."
Founded in 2002 by Directors, Trish Gray and Ian Smith, TGIS is an Aircraft and Engine Technical Services Company and Consultancy with a team of licensed engineers who all have over 35+ years' experience in the industry.
