    Scott Collier

    Joining ACC’s leasing division, ACMI 24, back in 2012, Scott draws on his extensive experience from across all areas of the industry to deliver results, from the tour operating and airline operational and commercial sectors to running his own leasing company.

    Vocal and outgoing, Scott thrives on finding the opportunity in adversity, embracing the challenges that the more difficult leasing markets, such as Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq, present.

    Scott’s great loves include spending time with his daughter, Fulham FC, horse racing, golf and rugby.

    He also fancies himself as a bit of a culinary artiste and, trust us on this, Scott could give David Dickinson tanning tips.

    A highly experienced charter consultant, Jenny joined ACC in 2014 as a Senior Account Manager, heading up our group charter team.

    ACC’s commercial aircraft ‘go to’ girl, Jenny has over 14 years’ experience sourcing aircraft charter solutions for a wide range of clients, including those in the military, government and automotive industry. Her extensive aviation knowledge, combined with a commitment to delivering first-class customer experiences, ensures that they come back time and again.

    A self-confessed shopaholic and cheese fiend, Jenny’s love of stilton is eclipsed only by her love for her son, George. When Mum duties allow, however, Jenny enjoys running and heading to music festivals to indulge her passion for garage music.

Femi completed his AAT level three and four qualifications while working full-time, an experience that taught him anything is possible when you put your mind to it. He is also currently finishing his ACCA.

    A certified gym-nut, Femi has also taken up kickboxing and is looking to complete his first 10km.

    His other interests include travelling and, when study and training allow, Femi loves nothing more than experiencing new destinations. Amsterdam ranks among his favourites, but he also dreams of visiting the Caribbean.
