Home - News & Resources - Meet Matthew Blakeley

What's your professional background?

I graduated from Edge Hill University in 2018 with a professional Law degree. I went on to work for 3 years in the legal sector, with most of that time spent working in personal injury, and the other small portion spent in debt recovery.

What do you hope to achieve with AeroCloud?

I took a leap of faith by joining AeroCloud. I guess the money and commission were a major incentive for me. I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted to do with my career if I continued in the legal sector. It was something I was extremely interested in from the moment it landed at my table. I made it my priority to ensure I did everything possible to secure the role!

##What do you hope to achieve with AeroCloud?

Everything? Conquer the aviation world. In all seriousness, my primary goal is to help the company grow exponentially and secure as many deals as possible. Whilst this seems obvious, I also intend to absorb as many skills as possible from the professionals around me. I am surrounded by highly-motivated, talented individuals, and I want to learn as much as I can from them. I hope the foundations are being laid to help me reach the same level my seniors are at - if not higher!

When you're not helping airports solve operational challenges, what do you like to do?

So since moving to Manchester, I am an approximate 10-minute walk from Piccadilly Train Station, which connects you to the whole of England. This has made it easy to follow my beloved Wigan Athletic up and down the country as best I can, although those days out are not cheap! I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend, going on nice walks and going out for food. One thing I'm particular about is travelling! I do not like returning to the same places I've visited, and instead enjoy seeing as many different Countries/Cities as I can - so I guess this would fall under the explorer remit.
