Magma Aviation appoints Conor Brannigan as Deputy CEO

13 Jul 2021

Magma Aviation, the innovative air cargo solutions company, has appointed Conor Brannigan, air cargo expert with over 15 years industry experience, as Deputy CEO.

Conor Brannigan joins the business following 2 years at Cargolux based in Luxemburg in a senior role as Director Strategic Alliances and Market Development. Previously to that, Conor spent almost 6 years in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates at Etihad, in a global cargo position. His career in aviation began at Aer Lingus in 2006 where he progressed to Cargo Business Analyst.

This experience prepares him well for his new role at Magma Aviation based at the London Gatwick headquarters.

Conor will be working closely with Ross Wilson CEO, Tom Wrigley COO and Tom Helyar, General Manager as well as the wider group board of directors.

Ross Wilson, Magma Aviation CEO comments:

“We are delighted and excited to welcome Conor to the team at Magma Aviation. His experience and industry knowledge will be paramount in moving us to the next level. The cargo industry is a tight knit community and Conor is already known to us and our colleagues across the wider group, making for an even smoother transition into the business. I have every confidence that he will be a great success in the new role”

Conor says:

“I am looking forward to this new role and having experience working in large companies it’s great to be joining Magma Aviation that has that lean family feel to it but with a powerhouse behind. One of my tasks will be to look at synergies across the whole group and how we can take a collective approach as part of our growth strategy. Digitalisation is high on the agenda too”.

Moving home, country and starting a new role in the middle of a global pandemic hasn’t fazed Conor. The approach Magma Aviation has taken during the pandemic only confirmed to him that it was the role for him.

“Magma Aviation has continued to react positively through the ongoing pandemic, maintaining a robust charter service – it has been especially complex navigating Africa and Hong Kong for instance, but Magma Aviation has continued to provide for its customers without fail. The continued expansion and the addition of a 5th aircraft was attractive to me, when business leaders can make decisions in difficult times it lends a lot to what the future may hold.”
