Industry veteran Bob James, 55, was made an OBE last year for services to exports in the aerospace industry. He founded Caerphilly-based AerFin in 2010, and the company has since spent more than £100m buying aircraft, engines and spares, which it recycles as part of a sustainable supply chain service for big airlines. In 2017, it dealt with 415 customers in 62 countries as demand for its services continued to grow, helping profits reach £8m.
