Alex Murphy, Head of Gulf Aviation, receives global recognition from the Royal Aeronautical Society after 25 years of service to the industry

 Aviation industry stalwart Alex Murphy, who heads up UK aviation fuel and lubricants specialist Gulf Aviation, has received a Fellowship from the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), one of the organisation’s highest global honours.

Alex, who has worked in the aviation industry for more than 25 years including seven years with Gulf Aviation, was presented with his Fellowship at the Royal Aeronautical Society offices in Mayfair, London this week.

Established in 1866, the Royal Aeronautical Society is the world’s only professional body dedicated to the aerospace community, working to promote the highest professional standards in the industry.

Alex now joins a select list of RAeS Fellows in the UK and around the globe, and was humbled to receive the honour this week.

“Receiving the Fellowship was a genuine surprise!” said Alex. “I’ve never chased recognition, I’ve just really focused on trying to get the job done to the best of my ability and on building great relationships, so I’m honoured to receive the award from RAeS. I share this with everyone who has helped me along the way over the last 25 years, including my fantastic team at Gulf Aviation.

“Aviation has been a really important part of my life and I’m privileged to work in an industry with so many passionate advocates and amazing people”, Alex added.

“Alex’s contribution to the aviation industry over a 25-year career has been tremendous, and it is fitting that we’ve been able to recognise that by making him a Fellow of the RAeS”, said Simon Levy from the Royal Aeronautical Society. “His knowledge of aviation, the depth and strength of his relationships across the industry and the quality of the work Alex and his team deliver, really sets him apart.”

Over the past four years, Alex and his team have built Gulf Aviation – part of Certas Energy – into a personally trusted fuel and lubricants partner to an ever-growing number of commercial airlines, regional airports and general aviation operators, across the UK.
