He became the chief executive of the British Business and General Aviation Association (BBGA) -- formerly GAMTA -- in 2003, thus representing the association's members to all relevant international, European and national civil aviation authorities.
The award recipients will be honored for their achievements at this year's event, which is scheduled for Geneva on May 22 to 24. "I am delighted to see proper recognition being given to Judith Moreton and Mark Wilson for the outstanding contributions they have made to business aviation in Europe in their respective fields," said Brian Humphries, CEO of EBAA.
