More about me…

I am a second generation member of the Broadcast, Film and Media Industries. My experience and knowledge of Aviation has largely been the result of supplying Productions, Equipment and Services around the world, working with Airlines, Airports and Heritage projects. I am able to easily relate my own experience and knowledge of business across sectors.

The Broadcast and Film Industries have enabled me to benefit from a lifelong exposure to businesses and executives from a diverse range of industries, both socially and as a result of productions,  including: Advertising; Airlines & Aviation; Automotive; Banking; Brewing; Distilling & Beverages; Manufacturing; Motorsport; Oil & Energy; Media; Retail; Telecoms; Retail.


I am inspired in business by three men…

My Father, Tony Covell, who showed me the world, and taught me pretty much everything I know about Broadcast, Film, Media and Business.

The late Sir Freddie Laker, whose Skytrain service enabled my Father to discover the United States and begin trading with companies in Los Angeles and New York.

Sir Richard Branson, who continued the legacy of Sir Freddie with Virgin Atlantic, and then enabled me to discover the United States, do my own business there, and has generally been inspiring to me in business in many ways. I will however confess that unlike Sir Richard, I am rather partial to wearing suits and ties!

Warren Buffet, Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Jeff Bezoz are pretty interesting people too!
