In line with continued business growth and the implementation of additional projects for many clients, Spafax is delighted to announce two new appointments to its client service and operations teams.

Kerry Govan has been appointed to the position of Senior Manager – Client Services, based in the Spafax London office.

Kerry will be working closely with the existing content acquisition, account management and operations staff to develop programming strategies and manage key service aspects for IFE clients in Europe and the Middle East.

“I am delighted to welcome Kerry to the Spafax team, where I know that her wealth of experience will make a valuable contribution to the ongoing delivery of high quality IFE solutions to our airline clients”, says Sue Pinfold, Executive Vice President of IFE for Spafax.

Prior to joining Spafax, Kerry was employed at Inflight Productions for over 16 years, spending time in various client service roles in the London, Dubai and California offices. Kerry’s previous responsibilities included the management of services for key IFE clients such as Etihad Airways and Continental Airlines. 

Meanwhile, in the California office, Sandra Goldwyn recently rejoined Spafax as Operations Manager.

Sandi is now part of the Spafax global operations network that is responsible for managing the on time delivery of high quality digital and analogue media materials to airline clients all over the world. Her role includes supervision of deliverables from third party facilities, as well as encoding, duplication, editing and audio production activities supplied by Spafax’s own full service lab.

Al St. Germain, Vice President for Spafax USA, adds his own welcome to the new Spafax team members, commenting that “Sandi brings with her many years of operational expertise and a strong network with all the major hardware providers, labs and other production facilities. Her skills complement the existing operations group to ensure the provision of great service to our clients all over the globe.”
