After four years there, working with the local business community and airlines to identify, establish and launch new routes, she moved to Biggin Hill Airport.
At Biggin Hill, Julie was responsible for managing the airport’s own Executive Handling business, as well as marketing and PR, alongside working with the RAF to establish the Northolt Jet Centre as a sister business.
Her career took a new direction in 2003 when Julie joined Chapman Freeborn, where in time she took the reins of the UK VIP / Executive team, overseeing a diverse range of charter projects, including head of state flights and global music tours. Julie’s latest role is as Head of the UK based Executive Charter team at Hunt & Palmer, overseeing a busy team of brokers with a credible corporate client base on worldwide charter projects.
Julie joined the The Air Charter Association Council in 2015. She is also a busy mother of twin daughters who enjoys reading, music, creative writing and writing for trade publications and loves the travel opportunities that a job in aviation brings! In 2019 Julie was delighted to be elected as Deputy Chair for the Association in its 70th year.
