John Bar­nett passes away It

Cargo Talk - - International News -

is with the deep­est re­gret and sad­ness that we re­port the pass­ing of vet­eran in­dus­try ma­jor John Bar­nett on Jan­uary 8, 2014, fol­low­ing a long-term ill­ness.

John was well-known as a co-founder of Wexco Air­freight – one of the ear­li­est UK GSSA com­pa­nies - in 1979. It is a tes­ta­ment to his ex­tra­or­di­nary hard work and pro­fes­sion­al­ism that the com­pany sur­vived and pros­pered through many of the most dif­fi­cult years in the in­dus­try’s his­tory. At his re­tire­ment in 2010, the com­pany be­came part of the Kales GSA net­work, but proudly re­tains its orig­i­nal name to this day.

John’s ded­i­ca­tion, pro­fes­sion­al­ism, pa­tience and fas­tid­i­ous at­ten­tion to ev­ery small de­tail would re­main as a source of in­spi­ra­tion for many at this chal­leng­ing time. “His hu­mour, hu­man­ity, charm and con­stant en­cour­age­ment were an in­spi­ra­tion to all who had the hon­our to work with him. His high ser­vice stan­dards and ethics earned him a rep­u­ta­tion among his many client air­lines. The in­dus­try has lost a gen­tle­man and a true pro­fes­sional,” said Peter Kales, Chair­man, Kales Group.
