Before joining National Express in 2017, James was a Partner at KPMG LLP, where he advised leading transport companies in his roles as UK Head of Transport and Global Head of Aviation. Here he was instrumental in helping the practice grow its market share to 40%-plus, working as lead relationship partner for various established legacy and low-cost airlines.

His deep sector experience gained at KPMG in addition to his current role with a leading international public transport operator, active in the UK, Europe, North Africa, Americas and the Middle East – core markets for ACC Aviation’s aviation services and consulting business – makes for a natural fit.

“James’ skillset and experience will enhance the capabilities and strengths of our Board of Directors as we advance our strategy and investment in the Aviation Services Division.  We welcome James to the Board,” commented ACC Aviation Chairman Phil Aird-Mash.

“I am delighted to take on this non-executive role at ACC Aviation and become immersed in commercial aviation once again,” said James Stamp.  “I’m also looking forward to exploring synergies and sharing ideas with their exceptional and dynamic leadership team.”
