Aeropeople Ltd has been acquired by Bishill Holdings Limited, who will be taking ownership of the business from Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group (MADG). Aeropeople is a market leader in specialist aerospace recruitment solutions, also providing expertise and manpower across the aviation, engineering, motorsport, automotive and defence industries.

Bishill Holdings is run by Kevan Bishop who was founder of Aeropeople Ltd back in 2001, Kevan spearheaded the successful growth of Aeropeople for over 17 years from 2001 to 2018. Kevan is again looking forward to leading Aeropeople, as CEO.

Kevan Bishop says: "This is an exciting time for Aeropeople. The change will allow us to be more flexible, agile and responsive to the needs of our clients and contractors. I am looking forward to sharing my vision for the future, with exciting growth plans and new business opportunities.”

The change in ownership will also give MADG the opportunity to refocus their resources and invest back into their core business. Aeropeople Ltd will continue with business as usual in supporting MADG with the provision of contractors and CAMO services in the same way it does today.

MADG CEO Gary Moynehan explains: “The sale of Aeropeople Ltd aligns to our strategy for the growth, development and investment in our core business areas which are focused on delivering applied engineering services to our global customer base in the Aerospace and Defence sector. I am sure Kevan’s previous experience of the business will ensure an effective transition to the new ownership and we wish him and the Aeropeople team every success in the future.”

 

Aeropeople was established in 2001, as a result of market demand, and was focused on being a provider of specialist aerospace recruitment solutions. Since then, Aeropeople has enjoyed a period of significant growth over 18 years having continually diversified the business to offer a range of flexible business solutions.

Today, Aeropeople consists of three divisions. The Recruitment Division has broadened its expertise to now provide specialised manpower across the aerospace, aviation, engineering, motorsport, automotive, and defence industries. Both our Line Maintenance team, based at London Stansted Airport, and CAMO team based in Cambridge, combine their numerous EASA and international regulatory approvals to create our talented Engineering Services Division.
