Elie Hanna new CEO of ACS Dubai

Elie Hanna has been promoted to the role of CEO of ACS Dubai and will oversee the company’s growth in the Middle East.

Chris Leach, Chairman of Air Charter Service, said: “Elie has enjoyed huge success with the company since he joined us 13 years ago – in that time he’s shown excellent leadership qualities, and he knows the Middle Eastern market inside and out.

“The market in the region spans many different countries and cultures, and we feel Elie is absolutely the right person to give the focus needed to grow our business in each of these submarkets.

“Our future investment plans in the region need to be shaped based on local knowledge, and myself and the rest of the board look forward to working closely with Elie to develop a strategy to further cement our place as one of the leading charter providers in the Middle East.

“The first step is the expansion of the private jet team in the region, with three senior members joining over the next two months.”

The news follows the recent announcement that Andrew Summers has left his role in Dubai and been appointed Regional Director for ACS’s European offices.
