Jerry Allen, Senior Associate
Jerry is widely known as an international authority on crisis management, response and recovery. His military background and later careers with IATA and a global disaster management company, has given Jerry the skills, knowledge and experience to assist companies to be prepared for crisis. In 2018 alone, Jerry delivered more than 30 crisis training programmes, complex exercises and plan reviews for airlines, airports, hotels and logistics companies.
In the early 2000’s, Jerry was on the senior staff of the International Air Transport Association (IATA). His 4-year objective was to assist world aviation to be more resilient to business disruptions and, in particular, to crisis and reputational risk. During this time, Jerry was the lead for several industry groups including one that focused on emergency response. To drive the initiatives of the Group forward, he planned, organised and delivered a series of international conferences, the first of their kind for aviation. The conferences addressed what needed to be done but the associated training programmes, designed by Jerry, were the tools to fill the capability gap.
Jerry is a graduate of the Royal Air Force College. He served as a commissioned officer specialising in logistics and air transport. Completing his RAF career as a Wing Commander, Jerry saw overseas service in Germany, North America, the South Atlantic and the Gulf states.
