John Barnett passes away It
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.
