Jack Romero is a ‘self-starter’ demonstrating a gritting determination for success.
Having arrived in the UK without a bed to sleep in and only £90 in his pocket, Jack tenaciously and diligently worked on his passion for aviation. His tireless devotion enabled him to secure a pilot’s license and start an international airline from scratch at Heathrow Airport (BMED British Mediterranean Airways) that later achieved the prestigious Queen’s Award for Business Enterprise (2004).
Romero’s airline was subsequently sold for £30 million, and is a true testament to the power of believing in oneself, never giving up and how it is possible to overcome even the toughest of obstacles in order to fulfil a lifelong ambition. Consequently, his story has been broadcasted on national TV as part of the BBC’s ‘My Story’ series.
Jack Romero is passionate about business transformation and has gained vast experience in a number of industries at home and abroad. Working as a trouble shooter, advising SME’s to large corporate companies, his portfolio of clients has included Middle Eastern Royal family members to a corporation with a turnover over $1.5 billion.
Combined with a ‘can do’ attitude, a no-nonsense approach and a huge network of resources, he is able to offer a true insight into developing businesses and corporations even in the most challenging of circumstances.
Since his airline was sold to bmi in 2007, which in turn was bought back by British Airways in 2012 along with bmi for $276.2m (£175 million), Jack has developed a number of successful business interests both as a CEO and as an entrepreneur. His experience and knowledge coupled with his creative and inquisitive approach has proven to be beneficial to many organisations.
