MHC History...

MHC was first founded in 2003 by board member Alexander Gudbjartsson and in 2010 the partnership began with board member Gudmundur Hafsteinsson. Gudmundur & Alexander were officially co-directing MHC in 2010, but the collaboration of the pair did not start there. Alexander and Gudmundur first met over 30 years ago and the duo have some truly remarkable stories to tell.

Several years ago, Gudmundur was working as the Human Resources Director for a well-established airline where he was facing extraordinary problems whilst dealing with external agencies. Alexander saw the problems that airlines were facing globally and decided to act on his discovery by providing solutions on an international scale.

The goal for MHC was to provide airlines with a bespoke package where each client’s requirements and needs were listened to and the solutions would be tailored accordingly. The idea of providing a bespoke service surprised the industry and with the opportunity for MHC to offer recruitment, payroll, contracting, background checks and insurance solutions to global airlines, the company quickly took off.

There were many challenges which MHC faced when it first started, especially when setting up bases for clients in Asia when technology was limited. In many cases, when MHC first started, fax machines were the most common base of communications and wasn’t always easy to access. No challenge ever proved too great for Alexander and Gudmundur with them even hiring a fishing boat to travel to remote locations at their client’s requests.

Alexander and Gudmundur both share a profound amount of knowledge, understanding and experience within aviation, and both carry unique and detailed skills which are necessary to meet the expectations of their clients. Today, MHC is still in partnership with their first ever client.
