Former Luton Airport chief executive Nick Barton has been appointed to a similar position at Birmingham Airport. He starts his new job today, 7 January, after leaving Luton just before Christmas. The Luton post has been filled by Alberto Martin (see ‘Martin moves up at Luton’ in this issue).
Barton joins Birmingham at a busy time following the recent announcement of a draft master plan covering the next 15 years with a £500m programme to upgrade and expand the capacity of its terminal operations, aircraft stands and support facilities.
Airport officials say the project will support further growth from Birmingham’s current 13m passengers a year to an expected 18m over the life of the plan.
Barton has extensive experience in the airports sector. In addition to his four years at Luton, he was part of the senior management team at Stansted for eight years, latterly as managing director, as well as holding executive roles at BAA.
He said: “I am thrilled to be joining Birmingham Airport to deliver the board’s vision and strategy for this critical piece of national and regionally significant transport infrastructure.
"Birmingham Airport is on the threshold of a very exciting chapter in its development and I am delighted to have been given the responsibility to lead and shape its future.”
