Industry veteran Bob James, 55, was awarded an OBE last year for services to exports in the aerospace industry. He founded the Caerphilly-based AerFin in 2010, and the company has since spent more than £100m buying old aircraft, engines and spare parts, which it recycles and sells, or leases to the likes of Lufthansa and Philippine Airlines. Exports to 60 countries lifted international sales to £58.6m in 2017.
