ACL appoints two new non-executive directors

Posted 10 October 2018 · Add Comment

The world‘s leading airport slot coordinator, Airport Coordination Ltd (ACL), that supports Dubai International and Dubai World Central, has welcomed two further independent non-executive directors to its board, effective immediately.

 

Ailsa Beaton and Valerie Gordon-Walker will contribute complementary industry management experience to the independent coordinator.  They join Catherine Brown, former CEO of the Food Standards Agency, who joined ACL in 2017 as a Non Executive Director and Jeff Halliwell, who became ACL‘s first independent Chair in 2013.

“These new appointments, hard on the heels of the arrival of our new CEO Edmond Rose last month, place Airport Coordinationin a stronger position to play an increasingly prominent and effective role serving airports and airlines globally,” said ACL Chairman Jeff Halliwell.  “The strong increase in worldwide consumer demand for aviation and consequent pressure on expensive infrastructure means that the fair and effective co-ordination of slots, and the optimisation of airport capacity, have never been more important.”

“Bringing in two further independent board members will strengthen ACL‘s ability to uphold its duties in an independent, fair, and transparent manner,” he added.
