Emily Williams has spent almost 20 years in the private aviation industry. After graduating from Cambridge University she began her career in advertising at Ogilvy & Mather. It was a natural progression on to Sales and Emily’s aviation career began at NetJets Europe a few years later, shortly after the merger with Marquis Jet Europe. She spent ten happy years there, leading the UK team and latterly as the Board Sales Director for the European business. With a strong focus on delivering the customer’s needs and wants, balanced with the rigorous Berkshire Hathaway ten year planning process, it was an excellent grounding for starting a business.
In 2015 Emily joined forces with her former NetJets colleague, Nicolas Imrie, and they founded IW Aviation. IWA provides totally independent private aviation advice and works with a range of customers from private individuals to global PLCs. The IWA team provides full analysis of their client’s aviation needs and then go on to manage a portfolio solution of day to day flying ranging from ad hoc charter, through to fractional contracts with all the major providers and on to whole aircraft ownership.
When not glued to her computer, Emily is a keen amateur horse rider and manages a menagerie of horses, a husband and two young girls.
