For more than a decade, Marlborough has been one of the world’s leading executive search practitioners operating exclusively within the air transport and travel sectors. We are experts at identifying aviation talent and are trusted advisers to airports, airlines, aerospace manufacturers, service providers, travel companies and industry associations worldwide.

Sourcing aviation executives

We offer a thorough and personalised collaborative approach — an approach at a one-on-one level, and for which boutique businesses are famous. We get to know our clients inside and out to ensure the right candidate is appointed — not just in terms of experience, but crucially also in terms of chemistry and cultural fit.

Global executive search for airports

We are approachable, honest and open, and pride ourselves on delivering fast response times, offering real, specialist expertise and tailor requirements to each individual client.
Our status as one of industry's leading executive search firm has been achieved through professionalism, dedication and hard work, a customer-focused approach and a policy of 'Right Candidate – First Time'.
The strong relationships we have established with aviation and travel companies worldwide means that over 80% of our business is from existing clients or through referrals.
We have earned the respect of aviation executives who, when considering a career move, put their trust and confidence in our ability to deliver a quality service.

During the last ten years Marlborough has assisted international airports to quickly and accurately identify the leaders of tomorrow that in turn has enabled swift organisational change and a clear competitive edge.

Along the way we have built an unparalleled network of contacts and are recognised as a leading authority on managing executive transition within this industry.

Marlborough is an active world business partner of Airport Council International (ACI) and we are also members of AESC, the elite executive search community. We have addressed audiences at international airport conferences on a variety of airport-related HR and leadership issues.

Identification and selection of aviation senior management personnel

When it comes to the identification and selection of senior management, finding the ‘right fit’ is the bedrock of any search process. Marlborough is committed to providing a shortlist of candidates who exactly match our client’s criteria — and we are prepared to search far and wide to find such talent.

We reduce the risk elements of hiring. We are able to provide detailed advice above and beyond merely placing people — we have become leadership consultants in our own right, offering critical insight and advice on the most effective systems, structures and processes to ensure clients gain the best advantages from their senior management team. We are equally at home whether dealing with a large multinational or small, local start-up.

The name Marlborough is synonymous with airports and aviation and our network of contacts is unparalleled within the industry. As a result we can confidently lay claim to being able to access the business cards of upwards of 15,000 senior-level aviation executives worldwide.
