Mairead Dooley-Byrne – Associate Editor
Mairead is anna.aero’s low cost airline guru, having spent 15 years (1997-2012) at the heart of the world’s most revolutionary airline as a Commercial Development Manager at Ryanair where she was centrally involved in the creation of hundreds of new routes. Mairead’s extensive business relations with literally hundreds of airports are also a key capability in her role in managing anna.aero’s sister website, TheRouteShop.com
Paul J. Hogan – Publisher
Raised in Coventry when it was the centre of British car manufacturing, Paul began his career in the motor industry in the press office of FIAT. Aside from washing and crashing a lot of cars he has also indulged a passion for Eastern Europe as the publisher of the Hungarian Financial Review (for De Benedetti) and for Euromoney’s Central European. But for most of his career he has been serving a life sentence in aviation publishing as managing editor of The Avmark Aviation Economist (“where I learnt everything I know”), and at PPS Publications where he has been centrally involved in the official publications for ACI EUROPE, ACI North America, the International Association of Airport Duty Free Stores, the Tax Free World Association, the European Regions Airline Association, and the UK Airport Operators Association. He was also publisher of jetOne before it metamorphosised into anna.aero. For his mid-life crisis Paul became a fanatical runner and triathlete and plans to complete his fourth London Marathon this year in under 3hr30.
Jon Lassetter – Business Development Manager
Jon is responsible for the commercial development of anna.aero – championing a performance which recently saw the number of airports in The Route Shop pass the 100 milestone. Jon has spent a decade in airport publishing mainly for Washington-based PPS Inc where he was VP Commercial for ACI North America’s Centerlines magazine. Jon now works all over the world but has strong ambitions to build anna.aero’s US business. He likes nice cars – a lot – and was therefore overwhelmed to have won a Ferrari as PPS’ ‘Salesperson of the Year 2009′ (he has to give it back at the end of the loan weekend).
Magdalena Anna Fas – Assistant Editor, anna.aero
The latest arrival in PPS, before joining the company Magdalena was trying her luck in the trucking industry in Eastern Europe, but lorries proved to be nowhere near as fascinating as planes. A graduate from Aviation Management BSc at London Metropolitan University, Magdalena is currently studying towards her MSc specializing in humanitarian logistics for a change. In her spare time, she enjoys solving jigsaw puzzles and road trips to anywhere.
Ross Falconer – Chief Sub
Ross is another PPS long-timer having served working on everything we do. He is totally reliable with the most amazing recall for facts and spellings. He checks all our work to keep us legal. If it’s wrong, he’s the guy who goes to prison.
Kerry Parks – Office & Accounts Manager
If you have any questions at all, if you are not getting anna.aero regularly, or need to speak to one of the team but can’t, if you have lost your way, or just want to give us cash, Kerry is the most efficient member of the team. If she can help, she will.
Web, Design & Marketing Team
Keith Bateup – E-Commerce & Web Development Manager
www.aero.aero is managed and delivered by Keith. His interest in web development started many years before Web 2.0, back when the only internet browser available was Netscape Navigator. The first website he created was a fanzine for the Simpsons, where he dabbled in the latest internet technologies, mainly animated gifs. Since then his passion has developed into a successful career helping business exploit the benefits of e-commerce including several years in the financial community.
Richard Jende – Flash Designer
This is Richard’s job title, not a reflection of his wardrobe (although he does dress very nicely). Richard is a superb graphic designer with over five years experience of working with PPS’ air transport clients. He is also wizz-kid at using Flash and he does all those superb animations that are the hallmark of anna.aero. He also devised clever Route Shop branding and the graphic design behind anna.aero 2.0.
Sheng Pang- Business Development & Distribution Manager
Sheng’s role is to drive the readership of anna.aero to ensure that our substantial databases of other important people are utterly brilliant, and to generally strive to make sure that anna.aero is read by as many good people as possible.
Raised in Guangzhou in China’s booming Pearl River Delta, Sheng came to the UK in 2006 to take a master’s degree in e-Commerce Management from the University of Warwick. After graduation, Sheng worked as an online marketing specialist in the internet retail industry before bringing his considerable cyber skills to anna.aero. Unsurpringly Sheng, who is fluent is both Mandarin and Cantonese, is also our China specialist for absolutely any anna.aero activities pertaining to China.
Recently married, the Shengs spend most of their weekends exploring what he describes as: “the good-old English countryside.”
Chris Reynolds – Web Developer
Chris has always had an inquisitive mind and used to drive his father mad taking electronic devices apart to see how they worked. Since the age of 12 he has had an avid interest in creating websites and web development (as well as computers in general) and is always looking to expand his knowledge regarding all things web related. When he isn’t busy being a web monkey, Chris enjoys playing games and his guitar.
Paulo Natal – Web Developer
Paulo moved from Portugal to England 3 years ago, just after finishing his degree in Communication and multimedia. He studied web development and worked as a web designer and developer on a freelance basis until joining the anna.aero team. He has a great passion for sports, especially football and could of become professional if it wasn’t for his two left feet.. We just ignored his two left hands too and gave him a chance!
anna.aero and The Route Shop is brought to you by PPS Publications Ltd, the world’s biggest B2B aviation publisher by revenue and output.
