He has worked in aviation for more than 30 years in a variety of operations and commercial roles including chief operating officer with Loganair and general manager at Hebridean Air Services. He joined Stobart Air in 2015.
Previous Stobart Air managing director Graeme Buchanan becomes chief financial officer of the new Connect Airways, in which Stobart has a 30% stake, while SAS Ireland technical director Peter McKenna joins as chief operating officer on 1 November.
