    I still remember clearly reading the e-mail announcing the promotion of Calum to director- youngest in the business. At that time I didn’t know him personally, but I remember thinking wow that guy must be good.

    And he was.

    It always felt like Calum...  more

    We sat side by side occasionally before our Singapore's office renovation & even after that, he joined our perm team desk some times.

    A man with less words but surely not less wisdom.
    It’s definitely a great loss for the Airswift leadership & team as...  more

    Cal was always friends, family and laughter first. Talking on the phone we generally spoke with a strong Northern Irish accent simply because of one random interview we did together.

    Calum was someone who could always be relied on and he was one of few...  more

    We are a nation of thousand languages, we cannot express enough our grief in English. Tears are our only language we speak, we can cry a gallon of teardrops, yet our tears cannot change the fact that you are gone too soon.
    From the ends of the earth,...  more

    Airswift was my first proper corporate job and when I met Calum, I was in awe of how successful he had been before 30 and how much he had achieved in that time. He was motivated, passionate and such a kind man. I truly looked up to him. We became friends...  more

    I’m fortunate to have had the pleasure of knowing Calum from his very first day with the company in Manchester, when he was a fresh-faced graduate with a cheeky smile and a booming voice.

    Throughout his journey over the past 12 years, I’ve admired...  more

    Starting at Airswift in 2013 as a young teen fresh out of high school- Calum was someone I looked up to.

    I remember first meeting Cal and thinking- wow. He’s so established in his role at Air and is very motivated and driven at such a young age. This...  more

    I first met Calum 7 years ago when he interviewed me for a position with Air in PNG. At the time, he was still fairly new to the role of Regional Manager PNG and I remember being surprised at his age. I quickly realised he was smart and intelligent...  more

    Dear Calum, taken too soon. You were definitely a guiding light during my time at Air, you pushed me and those around you to be the best of their ability. You also had a fun, kind and caring soul. We’ve shared a lot of highs and I’ll never forget...  more

    Calum was one special person and it makes no sense to have lost him so soon and without the chance to say thank you, goodbye, or see you soon.

    We were only talking two weeks ago about life and plans. Calum was thinking of how to shape an opportunity...  more

    When Calum became vegetarian, I often tried to bait him into confessing he missed a good old steak or some deep fried chicken! He never wavered but, I could always count on him to offload my greens onto his plate.
    I’ll never forget the friendship &...  more

    "Hiya Love" are the first words that come to mind when I think of Calum, his constant mocking of the Manchester accent is my fondest memory, but by far my only memory. Calum took me under his wing several years ago and has guided me through my career at...  more

    I last met Calum by chance at the airport bar - we had beers. He was such likable, charming, intelligent and fun person. It was obvious to me why he enjoyed such success in his life. His parents must be so proud of his achievements. Seeing the posts...  more

    Oh Cal “Me Lad” What are we going to do without you! Nearly 11 years has given me so many wonderful memories.

    It’s times like this that challenge our faith as I often wonder how a person so full of goodness and life can be taken away so young. How unfair life can be!!

    I remember watching Calum refresh his ski legs at Nakiska in Alberta, before he 'took it' the main hill. I couldn’t help chuckling to myself as I watched him navigate around children and average sized humans like they were training cones on the nursery...  more

    Calum was one of the best colleagues I worked with, I did not have the chance to meet him but he always had this nice way of making you feel like you've known him for ages. A great man left and my thoughts go directly to his family and friends.

    Calum...the man with the voice! I never thought I’d say thank goodness for all WhatsApp voice memos, yet so pleased to be able to listen back to them and smile!
