Gloucestershire Airport's new boss
By Simon Hacker | 7th August 2023
Gloucestershire Airport has a new boss.
Management for the regional transport hub have issued a statement on the appointment of Jason Ivey in the role of Airport Director.
The statement said: "Jason started this week and joins with a proven track-record of driving operational excellence and supporting growth."
The appointment comes in the wake of managing director Karen Taylor's sudden departure, as reported by Punchline in June.
Amid a row between management and business tenants at the airport, Mike Morton, non-executive chairman for GAL, said "the airport has failed at communication," and added he would "endeavour to communicate and consult more going forward."
Mr Ivey began his career in aviation as an 18-year-old in the Royal Air Force. From there, his expertise and passion for aviation, said a spokesman, have seen him enjoy numerous and varied roles, including Aerodrome Inspector for the Civil Aviation Authority, Operations Manager at Farnborough Airport, Chief Fire Officer at Gatwick Airport, Airport Director at Cranfield Airport and Operations Director at London Southend Airport.
In his most recent role, he was Operations Director at London Oxford Airport.
Mr Ivey said: "I'm looking forward to building on this airport's important role as a gateway for regional growth and supporting the great and varied businesses that call the airport home. I've been in the role for just a week but I've seen enough to be genuinely excited by the potential of the exceptional team of people we have here. I'm very much looking forward to plotting the airport's next steps to support innovation, excellence and greater collaboration."
