The base will be headed up by Inigo Uriarte Del Palacio , who joins Resource group from Dubai Air Navigation Services. Inigo started his career as an Air Traffic Controller in Spain and after several years made the decision to use his experience to help the development of future controllers at the Center for Aeronautical Training Services, Carlos III University before moving to the UAE.
He said: “I’ve always been very passionate about aviation and during my time at university my interests in international business started to grow. I firmly believe that people are the key to the success of every business, particularly within the aviation environment where safe operations are paramount. My goal is to provide the best possible service we can to the Mediterranean and Spanish speaking markets.”
Stephan Hickman, Managing Director of Resource Group’s Aviation and Aerospace Resourcing Services division commented: “The establishment of our new business in Spain demonstrates our commitment to both current and future Resource Group clients based in Spain and the Iberian Peninsula. A key part of our service delivery philosophy is having support on the ground where our clients are. Spain has hugely successful airline and aerospace industries and we have both the ability and the desire to serve them well.”
