Musical duo for air broker

[ June 5, 2024   //   ]

Air charterer Chapman Freeborn has appointed Paul Kindred as senior business development manager – music and entertainment. He brings more than three decades of experience in the business including spells at Premier Aviation UK and Air Partner, as well as 25 years working at major record companies, including ten with Sony Music Entertainment.

He will work alongside newly appointed team leader, Chloe Phelps, who joined Chapman Freeborn in 2018 as part of the Tour Support Team. In her new role she will manage chartering services for music tours as well as nurturing client relationships.

Both will be based at the London Gatwick Airport headquarters.

“Chapman Freeborn has been chartering aircraft for the music industry since 1973, impressively coordinating major music tours, festivals, and one-off concerts for household names, right from the start,” said Kindred. “Chapman’s music and entertainment division is supported by experienced teams strategically located in all corners of the globe, that have deep inside knowledge of local and regional markets and are therefore able to offer better, more tailored solutions to clients, no matter their need or location.”

Phelps added: “Chapman Freeborn has an extensive global network which allows us to offer a bespoke, on-demand service for clients no matter the requirements and despite it being such a high-pressured, high-profile, fast-paced industry.

“Central to my role will be looking out for promising up-and-coming artists, thereby ensuring our client roster stays ahead of the curve as our music and entertainment vertical plays an even bigger role to our ongoing global growth strategy.”
