About The Speaker...
Originally from Liverpool I spent the first twenty one years of my working life within the coal industry, originally working in the Lancashire coalfield thereafter North Wales and finally Staffordshire. I progressed through the ranks from coal face to colliery manager until 1996 when an alternative career was required.
I was fortunate to join British Airways at Gatwick Airport as Cargo Operations Manager thus started my career with airlines and airports. I was the Airport Director at Robin Hood Doncaster Sheffield and Durham Tees Valley Airports in 2008 – 2011 before moving back to Staffordshire.
I’ve self-published two books based on a fictional airport in the West Midlands and the real planning issues it faced with the Local Planning Authority. I’m currently part way through my third book “The Undermanager.”
Still active in airports I’m now a Non-Executive Director and Vice Chair at Gloucestershire Airport.
