McLarens Aviation has appointed Trehane Oliver as managing director designate ahead of his promotion to managing director (MD) on 1 April 2019.

The move will follow the retirement of Nigel Minett who leaves McLarens after 27 years with the business and 43 years in the industry.

As MD, Trehane will lead a team of over 90 in-house aviation specialists, working across 33 offices, in 22 countries and managing in excess of 4,000 insurance related assignments each year.

Having joined McLarens Aviation as business development director in 2015, Trehane played a key role in supporting the business’ sustained international expansion.

He has also held senior underwriting and broking roles within the London and international markets.

Oliver commented: “I’m delighted to be taking on this role. McLarens Aviation is a fantastic company and one that has grown from strength to strength. I look forward to building from the strong platform that has been created and continuing to develop our international network in line with our clients’ needs.

We have a highly specialist team of aviation engineers and a growing demand for their services, in key regions across the globe. We have ambitious plans for the coming years and see a number of opportunities for further expansion, most notably across the Americas and Asia.”

Gary Brown, chief executive at McLarens added: “Trehane is the obvious candidate for this role. His insight has been hugely beneficial to the continued growth of McLarens Aviation and his wealth of experience, network of contacts and knowledge of the claims, broking and underwriting sides of the market, make him a great asset to the business.

I’d like to thank Nigel for his valued contribution to McLarens and McLarens Aviation over the last 27 years. He’s been instrumental in the development of our global network and has been a highly trusted and valued member of the McLarens Global Management Team.”
