With 15 years of experience in the international air cargo industry, Burt brings a wealth of extensive knowledge to Chapman Freeborn in his new role. Based out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Burt rejoins Chapman Freeborn after previously serving as Senior Cargo Charter Broker for the company in the past. Having started his career in the air cargo industry at Lift Management, Burt has since held several senior positions at various companies in the sector, including AirX and Air Partner.
As Senior Vice President of Cargo for the Americas, Burt will be leading a dedicated department of cargo specialists to further expand the company’s presence and growth plans for the Americas. By providing the most competitive cargo charter service to clients across the region and with the support of the existing Cargo team, Burt aims to bolster and expand the company’s client and supplier base.
Along with day-to-day team management, Burt will play a role in developing innovative new business and market growth strategies for the region, and ensure clients are matched with the most suitable aircraft type to meet their own unique air cargo needs for maximum productivity and streamlined service.
“Having had the privilege of working with the Chapman Freeborn team before, it’s an honor to return as Senior VP of Cargo for the Americas, especially at such a dynamic time for the company,” said Burt. “Its reputation for all-round excellence has been, and continues to be, a legacy I’m incredibly proud to be a part of. I very much look forward to taking Chapman Freeborn America’s team to new heights by solidifying ourselves as the most competitive, unmatched air cargo charter service in the world.”
“We’re incredibly excited to have Jack back on board, guiding our air cargo charter operations in the Americas during this pivotal stage of growth for the company,” said David McCown, President of the Americas of Chapman Freeborn. “Knowing Jack’s strengths from previous experience, I have every confidence that his analytical, solutions-oriented approach, years of industry experience, and successful track record in producing profitable results will be invaluable to the company’s ongoing development.”
Outside of work, Burt enjoys spending time with his family and young children. He is also an avid outdoorsman, a longtime resident of the Sunshine State, and when not in the office or at home, can often be found out on the water or perfecting his game on the golf course.
