The deputy chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority and former chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority, Sir Roy McNulty, was today appointed chairman of Gatwick Airport.
London’s second-biggest airport said current chairman Sir David Rowlands will stand down at the end of his three-year term on March 31.
McNulty, who has previously chaired air traffic control unit NATS, is also on the board of Monarch Holdings, owner of airline Monarch, which is a Gatwick customer, and veterinary drugs firm Norbrook Laboratories.
Gatwick chief executive Stewart Wingate said: “Sir David has chaired the airport through its £1.2 billion transformation programme and laid the foundations for the next phase of its growth as we put forward the case for increased capacity and better surface access. I would like to thank him for his strong legacy.”
